Sheikh Muhammad Nur Abdullah, President of the ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) and member of the Fiqh Council of North America, states: “There is difference of opinion among scholars regarding this issue. That issue is not regarding whether the meat slaughtered by the People of the Book is allowed or not, but the difference of scholars stems from the different methods used in slaughtering the animal. If the slaughtered animals meets the Islamic criteria, i.e. it has been alive before slaughter, slaughtered by the People of the Book and no other name has been mentioned on it, and it has been slaughtered properly and it bled, then it is allowed and considered halal.
