What is halal? In Arabic (the language of the Qur`an), it simply means permissible or allowed. The opposite of halal is haram, which means forbidden or not allowed. Our Halal Corned Beef line of products start in the slaughterhouse where we require the animals must be slaughtered in a ritual way known as Zabihah.
Zabihah requires animals to be alive and healthy at the time of slaughter. Since carrion is forbidden; the jugular vein, carotid artery and windpipe have to be severed by a razor sharp knife in a single swipe. This is done to ensure the least amount of pain as possible to the animal. At this time, a Muslim will recite tasmiya orshahada, which fulfills the requirement of dedication.
