Campaigns against halal are anti-Islamic bullying: race commissioner

Tim Soutphommasane says there has been a recent rise in anti-Muslim sentiment.

Campaigns against Australian companies that make halal products are "little more than anti-Islamic bullying", according to Race Discrimination Commissioner Tim Soutphommasane.

In an address in Adelaide on Thursday evening, Dr Soutphommasane will call out recent campaigns against food businesses that have halal certification, including pie maker Four'N'Twenty, the Byron Bay Cookie Company and Fleurieu Milk Company. 

Fleurieu has recently ended its $50,000 yoghurt supply deal with Emirates after a social media campaign.

At least one Australian company has caved to a social media campaign against Halal certification, but a number of others are resisting.

Halal products are made using processes that comply with Islamic religious beliefs.

But websites like "Halal Choices" are encouraging people to boycott businesses that have had their goods Halal-certified, amid claims that certification fees are funding terrorism.

Halal certification can be both a blessing and a curse in an age of social media warfare.

Certification can mean access to potentially lucrative markets for Australian businesses wanting to export to Islamic countries.

10 Good Reasons to Do Good Deeds

Allaah The Almighty enjoins us to remember Him frequently and perform good deeds because forgetfulness is a disease that leads to neglecting virtuous deeds. Allaah The Almighty says: 

{وَلَقَدْ عَهِدْنَا إِلَىَ آدَمَ مِن قَبْلُ فَنَسِيَ وَلَمْ نَجِدْ لَهُ عَزْماً }

'Translated' {And We had already taken a promise from Adam before, but he forgot; and We found not in him determination} [Taha: 115]. One's good deeds should be based on one's belief in Allaah The Almighty, and we must frequently remind ourselves of the reward for righteous deeds which encourages us to perform them.

A person should always remember that he has been instructed to compete in virtuous deeds. Allaah The Almighty says:

{..سَابِقُوا إِلَى مَغْفِرَةٍ مِنْ رَبِّكُمْ }

'Translation' {Race one with another in hastening towards Forgiveness from your Lord } [Hadid: 21].

The following are a few factors that serve as incentives to perform righteous deeds in order to gain blessings in this world and eternal reward in the Hereafter.

6 Productive Tips to Tame Your Child’s Foul Mouth

"What!?" You shift around to glance at your 6-year-old. You give him a heavy stare and then ask again, “What did you say?” He repeats the word again with the casualness of a morning greeting. Your 6-year-old just blurted a word of profanity!

How do you handle this delicate situation? Well, there are several things you can do to discourage your child from saying bad words. Here are 6 productive ways to get started:

Try to determine if older family members, friends, or TV viewing are providing your child with the improper words he is using. Young children are excellent mimickers. If they are hearing inappropriate words from those they regularly interact with, you might have a continuous battle trying to get them to stop using the words themselves. If you conclude they are getting the words from others around them, attempt to limit your child’s contact with these sources and mention your concerns to the individuals, as well.
