The more interesting reason was that, America’s meat organization spends 15 million dollars, just to create a spray so that their meat can become resilient to bacteria, what is unfortunate is that they knows that with halal meat, they wouldn’t have to create the spray, neither would America be spending so much money on just to create one, but the love for the money of this world keeps them blindfolded from the actual truth.
This article is based and was taken from an interview that was taken by a broadcasting company named Tebyan, and it was taken from Laila Shahristani. Laila, is an Islamic studies researcher that lives in the United States, she has earned her education in the field of microbiology, her bachelors degree in biology which was completed in Fullerton University, CA, and then later on attained higher studies in Polytechnic University, CA. In the midst of her university research, she found there was a sparkling connection between her Islamic studies and microbiology, which was created in her own mind, which also adds extensively to her activities. Laila is currently teaching at the Imam Sadiq (AS) learning centre in California, USA.
In microbiology, lactoferrin was the subject of study. Lactoferrin is a protein molecule that exists in our blood; this is found in abundance in the colostrums of the mother’s breast milk, it has a special anti-microbes and it stands in the way of the microbes, what lactoferrin does is that it attracts iron towards itself, meaning that every microbe that is in lactoferrin is because it has no iron in it, and it cannot expand or make a microfilm of its own, and layers upon layers are formed and this becomes the reason of the formation of pus. Our main research is about bloody stools which are because of e-coli, which is a special type of bacteria which forms into a human body.
The story was as such, in one of the famous restaurants in the United States about 6-7 years ago, in the well renowned chain restaurant Jack in the box, many people died from bloody stools, thereafter a little bit of research was done and it was found that the reason for the bloody stools were the bacteria itself (e-coli). Although they exist on the bodies of human beings, but when they enter into the body through foods, the bacteria turns a humans stool into blood, when it enters orally into a humans system, the percentage of it being fatal is high. In Islam, the understanding of purity and impurity makes us very careful for correct worship, and we must be very wary and cautious, but the understanding of pure and impure in the west although it has importance, it does not enforce cleanliness. In this restaurant, it came to an alert that stool was transferred from the nails of the chef to meat that was being cooked, which eventually killed customers as if the chef of the restaurant was too busy to wash their hands after using the toilet!
The company that would distribute the meat in the state, gave my teacher a project to work on, that would eventually come to a conclusion that they would increase lactoferrin, so that even if microbes intrude, they wouldn’t have a chance to grow. The expense of this project was 15 million USD, and because my project was also about lactoferrin, I with five other persons started the work. Unfortunately the infiltration of lactoferrin and its effect changed, and it wasn’t possible to reach a stable substance to make it safe in front of the bacteria. We would activate the lactoferrin in the laboratory, and once we tested the PH levels and put it under a microscope, we found that lactoferrin normally destroyed the bacterias, but when we tested it on the meat, it would sometimes turn out successful and sometimes unsuccessful. I had tested on the samples, and I would get meat and would test them myself. One day I had accidentally gotten late, and I was forced to take Halal meat I had at home, which is performed under Islamic rules and guidelines and is slaughtered according to Islamic laws, when I came and tested this certain type of meat, I realized and I thought to myself astonished, that this meat is very different to the other meats that I tested, meaning that first of all when we placed these bacterias, the percentage of infiltration of the bacteria was very less, and even without the lactoferrin, the bacteria did not infiltrate into the halal meat. When we had washed the meat, there was absolutely nothing remaining on the meat, the controller of our experimental room, meaning every experimental room had a special solution, and that was controlled by water.
I saw for myself, that the bacteria wouldn’t penetrate into the Halal meat, and even if it did penetrate, it would be completely clean after washing it. Glory to Allah! Here I must point out that our laws in Islamic jurisprudence which regard purities and impurities, is because of these reasons. But now, because of substance issues, they use a lot of different types of sprays. But that same Islam, that had came across and said around 1400 years ago, that water and nothing but water is better than anything. When my teacher answered towards the experiment, he was very astonished and surprised, I said “today, there was a difference I bought halal meat instead”, and the doctor’s name was Narn Nayedi, an Indian doctor who achieved his doctorates in Sweden, who also became famous because of attaining certain microbiological proofs from the deaths of women who used special cleaning products, he had said to me that even though he is not Muslim, he would use halal meat. In the laboratory, some had questioned that what type of meat is that, which is super resistant to the infiltration of bacteria. Our teacher, who was leaving the hall, said “it is a type of meat that you would never experi
