Islamic law requires a 2.5% tax called zakat which is imposed on income and accumulated wealth of all devout the muslims that are involved in the halal industry- the imams, slaughtermen, workers, business & shop owners etc.Halal certification is done on a fee for service basis, with the fees varying with the scope and scale of the services.Certification is provided by Islamic organizations, and would not be halal if the required zakat was not paid on the fees.What you may not know is that there are eight classes of zakat recipients, each of which gets a 1/8 share of the gross.One of those classifications is fighters in Allah's cause aka Mudihideen, aka terrorists.When you purchase a product which is certified Halal, you are indirectly contributing to terrorism.
