Halal - حلال - الطريقة الشرعية للذبح الحلال

Why do Muslims eat Halal - Unbelievable
And what is the meaning of Halal

Muslims are taught through the Qu'ran that all animals should be treated with respect
and well cared for. The goal is to slaughter the animal, limiting the amount of pain the animal will endure.

Meaning of halal

"Halal" is an Arabic word meaning "lawful" or "permissible", and the term not only covers food and drink, but also to all matters of daily life. When it comes to halal food, most people think of meat foods only. However, Muslims must ensure that all foods, particularly processed foods, pharmaceuticals, and non-food items like cosmetics, are also halal. Frequently, these products contain animal by-products or other ingredients that are not permissible for Muslims to eat or use on their bodies.

Explicitly forbidden

A variety of substances are considered as harmful (haraam) for humans to consume and, therefore, forbidden as per various Quranic verses:
  • Pork[Quran 2:173]
  • Blood[Quran 2:173]
  • Animals slaughtered in the name of anyone but God. All that has been dedicated or offered in sacrifice to an idolatrous altar or saint or a person considered to be "divine"[Quran 2:173] [Quran 5:3]
  • Carrion (carcasses of dead animals)[Quran 2:173]
  • An animal that has been strangled, beaten (to death), killed by a fall, gored (to death), savaged by a beast of prey (unless finished off by a human)[Quran 5:3]
  • Food over which God's name is not pronounced (or at least not in a name other than God)[Quran 6:121]
  • Alcohol[Quran 5:090]
  • These verses also have information regarding Halal foods: 2:173, 5:5, and 6:118-119, 121.
