investing in ETF is allowed ?

Question: What are the sharia compliance criteria for ETFs and index funds and evaluating companies for investment holdings? Are market tracking ETFs (like SPY and so on) halal? If not, what are alternative but still effective ways to benefit from index-tracking funds?
