Is kfc halal? Can Muslims eat kfc? 

As I said, ‘rules of slaughtering an animal’ will be the basis to determine whether KFC is halal or not. 

So my friends, KFC is not fully halal. There are different sections of people who prefer halal meat, Muslims. Whereas some don’t consume even don’t like to eat halal meat, they. Many people in some countries even wanted non-halal meat to be served to them. 

So at the end of day, KFC is doing business and in business there is a saying ‘serve people what they want, what they would like the most, how they want to be served’. So KFC decided to serve halal meat to Muslims and non-halal to non-muslims. 

In this way, in gulf countries (countries where Muslims are in majority or country us Islamic) KFC serves halal meat. Similarly where there is a majority of non-muslims they serve non-halal meat. And in many countries where the distribution is uneven, they serve halal in some areas, whereas they serve non-halal in some area; depending on in which area Muslims are in majority or not. Best example of this case is INDIA.

If we talk about research done by common people, some say ‘KFC doesn’t serve halal meat’. Whereas some say ‘they serve halal meat’. And there are also some people who say they serve halal to Muslims and non-halal to non-muslims. This might be confusing for Muslims who don’t live in Islamic or gulf countries.

So for those who don’t live in Islamic countries they have to be concerned about the meat they are being served with in KFC. I hope you got ‘is kfc halal and can muslims eat kfc meat’. 

So let’s see what KFC says about their halal or non-halal meat serving.

KFC says there are some halal restaurants which are 100% halal whereas the remaining are not halal. So for people living in non muslim majority countries, they should find a halal KFC restaurant near them. It is said by kfc itself.

To check if they are serving halal or not, kindly ask the owner or worker for their halal certificate. If they are all right then that is halal. And if you still have doubts, then ask for the name of the restaurant owner, if he is muslim, he must be serving halal meat. 

Please note that some people are also serving halal and non halal food in the same restaurant. So there is a probability some halal and non-halal meat gets mixed. So ignore such restaurants which are serving both, even if they are saying they take care of that, because there might be some mistake.
