Sharia Compliant Finance (‘SCF’) is a growing area of finance which many UK banks and financial institutions have bought into uncritically. The UK Government has also jumped on the bandwagon and announced that the UK will be the first non-Muslim country to issue lunch a sharia bond. Last year London was the first city outside the Islamic world to host the World Islamic Economic Forum and the government released a document in which David Cameron says: “The future of Islamic Finance in the global economy looks bright.

Over the last week or so, we’ve seen several new exemptions made to accommodate both sharia finance principles and halal food.

It was revealed this week that Subway, one of the largest fast food outlets in Britain, has decided to exclude pork and ham from its menu in around 200 of its stores. Furthermore, what meat remains will be exclusively halal – meat from animals slaughtered in accordance with sharia law.

In a statement, a Subway spokeswoman said “All halal meats are certified by the appropriate halal authorities.”

The head of the Charity Commission recently made a startling admission.  Islamic charities, he said, were the “most deadly” problem the Commission faces.  William Shawcross said it was “ludicrous” that people with convictions for terrorism were perfectly free to set up charities, and were not automatically disqualified.http://www.theguardian.com/society/2014/apr/20/islamic-extremism-chariti...

Summary: 

Halal food, food prepared according to Islamic sharia law, is becoming an increasing part of the Western diet and has become a multi-billion dollar global industry. But CBN News has discovered that some of that money is funneled to groups tied to terrorism.

Summary: 

The most common terrorism link for American Islamist charities involves, unsurprisingly, the Palestinian territories. Where do charitable donations for the Palestinian territories end up? In the Gaza Strip, Hamas, which is designated a foreign terrorist organization, oversees every facet of society, especially the social services in which Western charities work. From the distribution of medicine to the running of schools, orphanages, and kids’ summer camps, Hamas rules the roost.

Summary: 

Some Muslims have opined that halal certification is nothing more than a money-making scam, with the most ridiculous aspect being halal certification for dog food. It is ironic that the same imams who declare dogs to be «unclean» animals also willingly charge pet food manufacturers to certify food for the «unclean» beasts to be halal. Other Muslims have conceded that the halal certification scheme has become as financially corrupt as segments of the Jewish kosher product certification system. South African Muslim authorities have pointed out, to the dismay of the halal certification industry, that the Koran forbids imams from charging money to certify food as halal. Yet, the practice continues with fees charged for halal «stamps» on food, in some cases, indirectly propping up various jihadist groups with large sums of ready cash.
