SHAFAQNA – The Grand Ayatollah Sistani answered a question about feeding children in day nursery in non-Islamic country.
Question: I live in France and have a two year old son who goes to a day nursery and eats lunch there. From the start I requested that no meat must be given to him because the meat is not slaughtered according to Islam, and so far there was no problem. But recently my son sees that at lunch time the rest eat meat and he also asks for meat, if in day nursery he asks, can he be given meat which is not slaughtered according to Sharia or not?
The Grand Ayatollah Sistani: There is no problem, unless it is pig’s meat.
