Assalamualaykum

I have been told that quiet a number of our muslim brothers around the suburb of Auburn and the surrounding surburbs from the lebanese community are eating McDonalds specifically Big Macs late at night.

Their excuse is that there is no other takeaway shops open at that time of the night, except Mc Donalds and they get hungary for meat.

Well apart from the meat not being slaughtered the islamic way in McDonalds, the meat of the Big Mac is well known to have a mix of sheep meat, cow meat, cat meat and even dog meat. I know this after having worked in that industry for a number of years back in my youth.

If you know any brothers who are eating McDonalds then advise them to cease, and instead go and buy a Kebab.

McDonalds have had Halal stores here in Sydney for some time now, along with KFC... at least a couple of years I think.

Personally I don't have a problem with them providing halal food, not that I really eat their food, but I have once or twice.

If they indeed are using meat other than 100% beef in their burgers (with the exception of their fish and chicken burgers for the pedantic amongst us) then they are misleading the consumer. If I remember correctly from the ads on telly and the few times I've been in maccas, they use '100% beef' in their burgers...

if they were found to be misleading the consumer in such a manner, they'd be open to the mother of lawsuits... and who wants that hassle?

Welcome back br Usama.

Bro - if you put things like this, I want to see your source. Youthful reminiscing doesn't pass as proof of anything. Are you telling me you saw domestic pets slaughtered and put into burgers? You saw this with your own eyes?

I just don't believe you.

If they have halal certification, that's fine but I think the real issue is whether it is Tayyiba or not....

I don't eat there myself, but I defend the right of brothers who want to - it is halal to you if there is a halal certificate.

McDonalds are a giant of the corporate world, and they have restaurants all over the world.

I'm sure that if they claim that one or two of their restaurants are now using only halal meat, there should be no doubt in our minds at all.

Why would they lie to us? McDonalds? The folks who brought us everyone's favourite clown, Ronald McDonald? And let's not forget the "Hamburglar" and the big fat purple guy that I forgot the name of, who was in all those ads in the 80's.

They've never lied to us about their ingredients in the past, so why would they start now?

I can't believe that there are some people who would even suspect that McDonalds could be dishonest when they claim that one or two of their restaurants are absolutely 100% halal.

Surely, they are more concerned about the unique dietary needs of Sydney's Muslim community than they are about petty things like profits!

McDonalds LOVES us! McDonalds is our nutritional savior!

Good, nice McDonalds... need to spend more money at McDonalds... need to spend money now... need to eat Big Mac... Big Mac good. Need fries... fries good... Thirsty... mmm... large Coke... mmm... add 50c... get supersize meal... :wacko:

What about dessert? Surely a 30c cone should do the trick. Whats that? caramel? Oh take the caramel sundae, its only a few more pennies. go on.
Try the cultural McDonalds where you can get real tandoori chicken in a bun, a deli choice. Ah where would we be without McDonalds?

it is a fact that they use to put beef in the fries to make it taste better and they did not disclose this to the public. Apparently some hindus got together to sue them but im not sure what the outcome was.

i would like to see ur sources people.. for all of these accusations.. if you don't like eating mcdonalds, then don't.. dont just believe every urban myth then expect others to follow you...

I dont like mcdonalds, but i dont think it is approapriate to believe the hype that you hear.. just because u hear it.. we need to research these things and get the facts..

peace

Bro, I understand where the sarcasm is coming from, but the truth is that you will find quite a few muslim owned businesses that are just as concerned about profits, and sell food that is no better for us than McDonalds anyway. If the issue here is "tayyibah", then I think you'll find that the majority of halal restaurants here will fail the test. People who dish out McDonalds and then go and buy a greasy, antibiotic-pumped kebab are only fooling themselves.
