Hanafi Fiqh

I have come across Muslims who try and justify that we are permitted to eat the meat of the Jews/Christians, as is, e.g. McDonalds, supermarkets etc on the basis of the opinion given by Yusuf Al- Qaradawi. They say that, it is perfectly allowed to eat the animal slaughtered by a Christian or a Jew, regardless of the method used in slaughtering. On this basis, they consider meat sold in western supermarkets and other places to be perfectly Halal. It should be noted that at a conference of the Muslim Arab Youth Association (MAYA) in the U.S. a few years ago, where Sheikh Qaradawi is a regular speaker, he became exasperated upon being asked this question. He has encouraged, in the North American context, where Muslim businesses are present that Muslims buy from these stores as opposed to purchasing from the supermarket.
