Our Meat

RSS

Halal is a contentious issue among Muslims. There are multiple variations of halal meat in the market.

1. Some say every meat is halal if you live in a non-muslim country.
2. Some say saying the name of Allah before eating any meat makes it halal.
3. Most of the halal meat available in this country is cut through automated mechanism (like rotary blades for chicken). 4. Some stun the animals using captive bolt pistols, electric shock or gas before slaughter so that the animal lose their senses and it’s easier to handle.

5. Some slaughterhouses receive halal certificate once and are never checked again.

6. Whereas some just label their meat as halal without any inspection (especially meat originating in south american countries)
Without negating any of those above opinions, we feel halal should be simple and something that should be agreeable upon. So, we decided to take a time travel and study how our Prophet (S.A.W) and our elders did it hundreds of years ago. We want to bring the same methods in todays day and age to provide you the rightest kind of meat.

Therefore, we enforce the following 11-POINT halal process:

Amir

RIGHT METHOD

We observe the right method for blessing the animal:
1. The neck of the animal is cut between the throat and the gullet.
2. All 4 major blood vessels are cut. (Even if only 3 are cut, it would still be valid)
3. Neck is never severed completely.
Amir

MUSLIM SLAUGHTERER

The person doing the slaughter is strictly a muslim. One can technically also employ a person from “People of the Book”, but there are requirements that he should recite the name of “Allah” before doing the slaughter. And we are not sure if they would do that, so we chose to avoid that complication and strictly employ a muslim to do a slaughter.
Amir

CAPABILITY

The person doing the slaughtering is sane and mentally capable.
Amir

NAME OF ALLAH

Name of Allah is taken at the time of slaughter. We feel it is Mustahabb(recommended way) to say "Bismillahi Allahu Akbar”. No other name is taken with “Allah”. Also, there isn’t any delay after saying “Bismillah” to slaughter an animal.
Amir

NO STUNNING

There can be lots of issues with stunning (making animal unconscious with electric current before slaughter).
1. Animal might die before slaughter when they are subjected to stunning.
2. The variations in sizes of the animals (esp. chicken) and their individual resistance capacities mean that a blanket magnitude of current cannot be set.
3. It causes less blood to flow out, means more blood in the meat. Blood is the source of all diseases.
4. Moreover, it’s against the prophet’s sunnah.
Amir

INTENTION

Intention while doing the slaughter is only of “Zabiha”.
Amir

NO MACHINES

Every animal is slaughtered by hand with a sharp knife. We don’t employ any automated machines or rotating blades that cuts at great speed.
Amir

TEMPERATURE

While cleaning the animal after slaughter, temperate of water is never kept high so that the heat permeates into the meat.
Amir

NO CONTAMINATION

We strictly enforce that the meat of zabiha animal is not mixed with non-zabiha animal. Packaging line of our zabiha animal is completely separate.
Amir

SEQUENCE

We don’t slaughter an animal in front of another which is strictly prohibited.
Amir

BLOOD DRAINED

We drain all the blood out after slaughtering the animal. Blood is harmful to health as it is full of bacteria, infective agents, waste and harmful substances. It also makes meat less healthy, less nutritious and can be spoiled very fast.
