Confirmation of Nando's now

Salam,

i have been passed the following information from Nando's:

Thanks so much for contacting us, we really appreciate your bringing to
>our attention the rumours surrounding the Halal chicken we serve in
>selected Nando's restaurants.
>
>As a chicken restaurant group, we are committed to the highest standards
>for our chickens. The quality of our core product is of the utmost
>importance to us and we believe that quality product and clear
>consciences can only be achieved if the welfare and health of the
>chickens are a priority for our business. Nando's uses fresh, A-Grade,
>farm-reared chickens. Our Halal chickens are supplied to us by
>Freeman's of Newent.
>
>Freeman's of Newent are authorized by the Islamic institute of
>Jurisprudence and adhere to the strict Assured Chicken Production
>standards (ACP). Freeman's are the UK's leading supplier of halal
>chickens, their slaughter process is overseen by Mr. Ali Bham who has
>been a practicing Muslim slaughter man for over 20 years. Because
>welfare is such a high priority for us, the chickens are pre-stunned -
>to minimise suffering or fear. The method used is a high frequency low
>voltage stun - this means the animal is still alive when it is killed by
>zabiha (hand slaughter).
>
>Nando's is a non-judgemental, non-political company, we serve halal
>chicken in restaurants where local demand for that particular product is
>high. This is not a political decision; we welcome everyone into our
>restaurants, regardless of their beliefs. The sale of halal chicken is
>based purely on demand. Our halal chicken products and our non-halal
>chicken products never mix as they come from different suppliers and are
>segregated in our distribution centre. Our restaurants are authorised
>only to purchase poultry from our approved distribution centre.
>
>I do hope you now feel reassured and will continue to enjoy Nando's.
>Please do let me know if you have any other queries.


Can you please clarify if this is true or not??
Can you confirm if Mr Ali Bham is a well known Islamic slaughter person. If Freeman's and Newet are now authorized by the Islamic Institute.

Many Thanks

Halal ferrous sulphate tablets

Assalamualaikum,
i have been advised by my doctor to take ferrous sulphate tablets because i have dangerously low iron levels. she has also put me on a very high dosage of iron tablets known as ferrous sulphate tablets. these tablets are to be taken twice or thrice a day. unfortunately the brand of tablets that she has prescribed contain a sugar coating which has gelatin in it. i have been advised by a mufti that if i do not find a suitable alternative i will be allowed to take these tablets. i have researched alot regarding these tablets and my pharmacist has even informed me that you don't get them gelatin free. i have also checked on the internet to no avail. regular iron tablets will not do because of the fact that they have low iron content compared to ferrous sulphate tablets. i was hoping that you could help me find gelatin free tablets of this type, also if i do not find these tablets will it be ok for me to take these tablets. i need an answer as soon as possible because my health is slowly getting worse day by day.

Gelatin

Asalamu Alaykum

Having read the NIHT article I find that their ruling is based on scientific evidence. The Mufti from Zambia provides none. Having contacted Mufti AK Hoosain from Channel Islam, he concurs with the NIHT view. Why the discrepancy?

Thanks

Sorbitol Alcohol

I have read the rulings posted on this site regarding the use of mouthwash which contains alcohol.

However my question is with regards to mouthwash / products which contain sorbitol alcohol. I have done some research and it seems this is naturally occuring. Are we allowed to use such a product? I include links to info about sorbitol alcohol, I hope you are able to give a ruling accordingly.
