  1. Are Nandos and Oportos really halal?

    Wa salaam sister According to their website: "We have 402 restaurants, 73 of which serve only Halal chicken and are signposted both in the restaurant and online. A small proportion of chicken sold in our other restaurants may also be Halal. This may happen on rare occasions if there are, for example, issues with supply. However, all of our chickens are packaged, labelled and distributed to their intended restaurant. We continue to look at ways to offer chicken dishes which are guaranteed to be non-Halal. Why do we serve Halal chicken in selected restaurants? We always decide which restaurants will serve Halal chicken before it first opens. We base our decision on a range of criteria, such as: • Local population • Type of restaurant • Potential future openings in the area • Distance to nearest restaurant serving Halal chicken • Distribution factors You can see which stores are considered halal on their website: [https://www.nandos.co.uk/halal] " I would definitely not presume you're eating halal at Nando's just because of the brand name as per above. Also, if there is bacon being handled/served, is that Nando's store being managed/overseen by Muslims? At a lot of commercial fast food places, I think the general workers, who may also be young non-Muslims would have no idea about halal procedures. I don't eat commercial fast food myself and I'm very weary of when they claim 'halal'. Halal slaughtered meat can turn haram if not handled correctly.
  2. Grammar Test

    Akhi, your grammar only let you down forgetting to put the capital in perfect when you edited to follow format of the real results
  3. Grammar Test

    Yeah, I think classic British

    You scored 38 out of 40. Your grammar level is: Upper-Intermediate - CEF Level B2
  5. KFCs in UK closed

    In my person opinion, a lot of these 'cheap' fast food places although they meet 'halal', they definitely don't meet tayyib (wholesome/good) concept. For example, a McDonalds hamburger, kept for 14 years - look at the meat and bread, this definitely isn't 'natural' food. Any natural meat and bread would go off/rotten. A few days I happen to buy a Nando's mild peri peri sauce for home. One of my family looked in the bottle ingredients and pointed out to me it contained Propylene Glycol Alginate. Do you know this is a common ingredient in anti-freeze and also toxic if consumed in high amounts? I think a lot of these mainstream fast food places are loaded with rubbish and preservatives into their food.

    Has anyone personally met him? (Or are you allowed to?)
  7. Nontritarian Christians considered from ahlulkitb

    Wa alaikum salaam I would definitely say yes. In fact, they probably have more inheritance to this title then trinitarian Christians because they actually follow monotheism as instructed and revealed by Allah. The trinity is only a concept attached to Christianity through interpretation, which was established through the Nicene Creed in Constantinople. There were Christians then who also believed in other interpretations and as such also opposed the trinity, such as Arius. If you refer to the below map of Arian Christians, you can see half of the Christian states adhered to this in 500 A.D. It was only then approximately 70 years on from this when the Prophet Mohammad (s) was born. Then We sent following their footsteps Our messengers and followed [them] with Jesus, the son of Mary, and gave him the Gospel. And We placed in the hearts of those who followed him compassion and mercy and monasticism, which they innovated; We did not prescribe it for them except [that they did so] seeking the approval of Allah . But they did not observe it with due observance. So We gave the ones who believed among them their reward, but many of them are defiantly disobedient. Quran 57:27

  9. Transgender in Islam

    Is it required by law in Iran and other Islamic countries where transgender is considered permissible, for the transgender wife/husband to put forward her/his nature to the partner they are marrying first? I was just imagining the situation if one did not know until after they got married and the complexity of the issue. E.g. if you wanted children, you would either have to take a second wife or divorce your transgender wife. I would think they would also have to undergo the full operation before being able to marry as well, right?
  10. 3 types of people

    I would usually go around, maybe if I was in a hurry for some reason or feeling rebellious I may jump over
  11. Pureness Of Christians

    I would say it's done out of interests for security of Muslims during their Hajj/Umrah, so you don't end up with non-Muslims risking to upset others. But not Quran or Hadith based. But, at the same time all non-Muslims are excluded from learning about one of the beauties of Islam and if it were permissible for them, it may shine a much better light on Islam to them.
  12. All 66 on board killed in Iran Plane Crash

    @yasahebalzaman.313 Doesn't that make you sick? A tragic accident and you have Israel & US trying to use it for political sanctions to further their destabilization effort of Iran? You don't see other countries trying to impose sanctions on USA for example Weapons (guns) - the amount of school shootings that are occurring in the USA, the rest of the world should place sanctions on them for USA terror free schools Act Car crash - every time a car accident occurs, sanctions should be imposed and stop the production or importation of vehicles to the USA. and it's not like the USA is free of aviation accidents either, for example https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_accidents_and_incidents_involving_airliners_in_the_United_States I do think Iran should investigate further into this though and analyse its pilots and aviation maintenance. Iran must keep one step ahead, otherwise it's going to keep falling into the wolf pit and be bitten.

  14. How to speak Arabic - For Beginners

    Wa Alaikum Salaam Sayyid, Now the question which I was asked when I wanted to begin learning also, which Arabic do you want to learn? There is essentially Classical Arabic (Quranic) and then Dialect. Dialect is regionally influenced and differs, but is what is spoken through the Middle East & Africa. Classical Arabic is more so used for classical literature and things like newspaper cartoons. You can read about the dialects here http://www.myeasyarabic.com/site/what_is_spoken_arabic.htm You should check out this brother on youtube, he's quite a genius with some of his techniques for learning https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qwdyx9kAPlU
