Halal is an Muslim prescription for food handling and consumption. Products prepared by federally inspected meat packing plants identified with labels bearing references to “Halal” (or "Zabiah Halal") must be handled according to Islamic law and under Islamic authority.

There are several animals whose meat cannot be Halal (such as pigs or dogs).

In order to meet Halal requirements, a suitable animal must have its throat cut with a knife and all of its blood drained, while the slaughterman invokes the Muslim prayer "Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim" (an Arabic phrase for "By the name of God, The Most Compassionate, The Most Merciful").

Muslims claim that the Halal method is the quickest method to put an animal out of its misery; however many people have questioned whether shackling a conscious mammal (or hanging it) and then cutting the throat (not always with a sharp knife), is indeed a painless way of killing an animal.

Since this is a religious practice, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) cannot oppose this cruel practice.

Halal rules

Halal forbids Muslims from consuming pork, alcohol, blood, meat dedicated to a false god, animals improperly slaughtered or dead before slaughtering. [1]
