What is Halal Meat?
Halal food isn’t just halal because it has a stamp. There’s a lot more to it than we might think, and it’s important to understand the depths of halal food in order to make the best choices we possibly can.For an animal to be tayyib means it must be locally grown, free from pesticides, growth hormones or anything artificial, and it must have lived in an environment fit for its nature.
This is not only to ensure that what we are putting into our bodies is safe and pure, but it is also to ensure the rights of the animals. In Islam, all living creatures including plants and animals, have rights. Animals must be treated respectfully and compassionately.
The treatment of the animal throughout its life is just as, if not more, important than the slaughter itself.
Here are just some of the ways Islam ensures the welfare of the animal:
- The animal must be raised in a humane, wholesome and natural environment
- The animal must not be mishandled, stressed, or caused any discomfort during transport
- The animal must not feel stress or fear before death
- The animal must be killed quickly and with as little pain as possible
- The animal must be killed away from the view of other animals
- The animal must be offered water before the slaughter and it should not be slaughtered while hungry
RITUAL SLAUGHTER IN OTHER RELIGIONS
Religious slaughter is not privy to Islam. There are other methods of ritual slaughter amongst other religions including Christians and Jews.
The Jewish faith is probably one of the most well-known for their religious laws regarding food. This is known as kosher. There are slight differences between kosher and halal, but if there is no halal meat available, kosher is acceptable according to Islamic beliefs.
Some Christians also observe the no blood rule and may follow certain religious guidelines when it comes to buying and consuming meat. Since the majority of Christians, however, aren’t strict on these guidelines it is a debated subject among Muslim scholars as to whether their meat is acceptable for Muslim consumption
