if a non-Muslim owner of a huge commercial store asks for Halal certification for some foodstuffs to confirm they are Halal (Lawful) for Muslims,
is it permissible for the Council of Senior Scholars to issue such a certificate after verifying that the mentioned foodstuff is Halal?
If this foodstuff is actually Halal, it is permissible to testify in favor of its owner that it is Halal. However, the authority which has testified this should continue to monitor this store to make ensure that they continue to abide by Halal standards.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
