What is Halal Meat?


The method by which an animal/bird is slaughtered renders its meat Halal or Haram. For meat to be halal, the following conditions must be met:

  1. animal/bird must be of permissible specie, i.e, poultry, ovine and bovine (pork is not a Halal specie)
  2. animal/bird must be alive at the time of slaughter
  3. the slaughter knife must be sharp
  4. Each animal/bird must be blessed by mentioning Tasmiyah (In the name of God, the God is great) at the time of performing the neck cut
  5. all flowing blood must be drained out and animal/bird must be dead prior to any further processing
