The term covers and designates not only food and drink but also all matters of daily life. It is one of five الأحكام الخمسة (al-ahkam al-khamsah)—fard (compulsory), mustahabb (recommended), halal (allowed), makruh(disliked), haram (forbidden)—that define the morality of human action in Islam.Mubah is also used to mean "permissible" or "allowed" in Islam.
Question: Does the money from halal taxation go towards terrorism?
This is why non-muslims must campaign for and marginalise halal products in the shops and supermarkets of our towns and cities. Every pound/dollar spent on a halal taxed product generates a percentage which is automatically routed to terrorist organisations.
Although halal taxation covers a wide spectrum of goods and services the public are probably most aware of the controversy and debate surrounding halal meat products.
Livestock in the UK and the west are slaughtered under very strict and humane conditions. Guidance on animal welfare for slaughterhouses is regulated by the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs and the guidlines for animal slaughter can be found here
Exceptions are made for religious reasons which some consider to be not only cruel and painfull to the animals but also outdated and unnecessary.
One major campaign raising awareness of halal slaughter in the social media arena is the Boycott Halal Campaign on facebook which currently has over 80,000 supporters.
9. Dhabihah: method of slaughter Dhabīḥah (ذَبِيْحَة) is the prescribed method of slaughter for all meat sources, excluding fish and other sea-life, per Islamic law. This method of slaughtering animals consists of using a well-sharpened knife to make a swift, deep incision that cuts the front of the throat, the carotid artery, windpipe, and jugular veins. The head of an animal that is slaughtered using halal methods is aligned with the qiblah [*direction of Mecca]. In addition to the direction, permitted animals should be slaughtered upon utterance of the Islamic prayer 'Bismillah' "in the name of God." *The Concious Animal is left to bleed out with it's throat cut, feeling horrendous pain, panic and distress.

This is in accord with the Muslim belief that anytime a sexual sin, crime, or indiscretion is committed, it is the woman’s fault.
This is why Islamic law mandates that women must cover everything except their face and hands, and some cover their faces as well: if a man attacks a woman, it is the woman’s fault for enticing him, and she will be punished.

Sharia courts should be prevented from presiding over divorces and other family matters, and the Government should stop them from becoming an alternative legal system, campaigners will warn this week.
The calls to act against the controversial courts are being made in a letter signed by more than 150 organisations and individuals which will be delivered to the Prime Minister on Thursday.
This comes after The Independent revealed how sharia courts are keeping women in “marital captivity” and failing to properly report domestic violence.
Among the signatories to the letter are the Iranian and Kurdish Women's Rights Organisation; the Quilliam Foundation; the philosopher AC Grayling; and the National Secular Society.
“Successive governments have appeased undemocratic religious power brokers in minority communities who have sought to gain power through multicultural and now multi-faith social policies,” says the letter.
As neighbouring Norway becomes so safe police are preparing to hand in their firearms, Sweden is riding on the crest of a migrant gun crime wave fuelled by bloody gang wars.
Not only is gun crime in Sweden higher than all other Nordic nations combined, but such violence in just one city is enough alone to beat Sweden’s neighbours. Third largest city Malmö, in Sweden’s south-west, and just a ten minute train ride from Danish capital Copenhagen over the border, has recorded 63 people shot in the past five years.
In next-door Copenhagen, the number is 30. In Oslo and Helsinki, the capitals of Norway and Finland respectively, just ten people have been shot in the past five years each. Already multicultural paradise Malmö is higher than these three capitals combined, but this number is dwarfed in turn by gang warfare trouble city Gothenburg, where 109 people have been shot.
In Sweden’s own capital Stockholm, 189 people have been shot in the same time frame,reportsAftonBladet.
Exclusive: Academic with unprecedented access to Islamic divorce hearings says courts fail to report domestic violence

Sharia courts in Britain are locking women into “marital captivity” and doing nothing to officially report domestic violence, according to an academic who gained unprecedented access to Islamic divorce hearings.
Judges at the courts “uphold the theory and practice of the strong hold men have over women”, and set out to frustrate women whose husbands do not want them to leave, according to the study seen by The Independent.
The findings, which are to be unveiled in the Houses of Parliament next month, are based on the most detailed and informed analysis of the workings of British sharia courts ever undertaken by an independent researcher.
Machteld Zee, a legal scholar at Leiden University in the Netherlands, secured extraordinary access to the secretive courts, attending 15 hours of hearings at the Islamic Sharia Council in Leyton, east London, and the Birmingham Central Mosque Sharia. She was able to scrutinise more than a dozen cases, and interview an array of sharia experts including nine qadis – Islamic judges.

France is busy building a coalition to strike Islamic State in Syria after the massacre of 130 citizens in Paris. But a “mini Islamic State” is already functioning in the French suburbs.
A 2,200-page report, titled “Banlieu de la République” (Suburbs of the Republic), commissioned by the French think tank Institut Montaigne, explained that suburbs are becoming “separate Islamic societies”, where sharia, the Islamic law, has overcome French secular rule.
With the heightened security in the United States following the Paris attacks, the Islamic State (ISIS) appeared to have devised a different strategy in sowing terror, realising that sneaking in terrorists into the country, just like what it did in Paris, may not work in the U.S.
U.S. law enforcement officials now believe that the ISIS leadership could try to launch terror attacks using so-called "lone wolves" or sympathisers in the U.S., WND reported.
The officials based their assessment following their discovery of a previously little-noticed manual for "lone wolves" issued by ISIS.
Despite the fact some political factions, both right and left, across the U.S. have dubbed Islam a religion of peace, new research from a Danish expert confirms that it is, in fact, violent.
The conclusion was noted in a report at Jihad Watch, which monitors the toll of the religion of Muhammad.
“Together with a number of research assistants, the Danish linguist Tina Magaard spent three years examining the texts of the 10 largest religions,” explained Nicolai Sennels on the Jihad Watch site. “The conclusion was clear: ‘The texts of Islam [are] clearly distinct from the other religions’ texts as [they include] a higher degree call for violence and aggression against followers of other faiths.’
“There are also direct incitement[s] to terror … Moreover, in the Quran [there are] hundreds of invitations to fight against people of other faiths.”
