GENERAL


Q- What is halal?

Halal is an Arabic word which means permissible. It also means something that is good for the well being of the humanity. Islam places great emphasis in the way in which an animal’s life ends. Life is a sacred blessing of God to all his creations, including humans and animals. If the life of an animal has to be ended for human survival, then it’s life should be taken only in the name of God. For this reason, muslims cannot consume or use products made from animals that are not sacrificed in the name of God.

Also, all foods pure and clean are permitted for Muslims; except if it is derived from: dead animals, blood, pig, animals slaughtered without the name of God (Allah) as we mentioned earlier and alcohol.

If the product contains any ingredients that come from these sources, it is haram (non-permitted). And if the source is not known or if the company doesn’t disclose, it is called masbooh (doubtful).

On the other end, if the companies completely avoid ingredients from the above 5 sources, then halal product would be similar to just any other product.

Q- What is the difference between kosher and halal?

Kosher is a Hebrew word which means proper or fit and Halal is an Arabic word which means permissible. Muslims follow Islamic dietary law (halal) whereas Jews follow Jewish dietary law (kosher). Both the laws have more similarities than differences.

Q- How do you certify that your products are authentic halal?

We, at One Stop Halal, only sell those products that are certified by leading halal agencies such as IFANCA(Islamic Food And Nutritional Council of America), SANHA (South African National Halaal Authority), JAKIM (Malaysian Govt. National Halal Body), MUI (Majelis Ulama Indonesia), Halal Sign (Halal Body from India) etc.

Some products that aren't approved by these agencies, we make sure they are either plant based products or kosher certified (without the use of alcohol) etc.

Q- What is zabiha?

Zabiha or Dhabihah is the prescribed method of ritual slaughter of lawful halal animals. This method of slaughtering lawful animals has several conditions to be fulfilled.

We, at One Stop Halal, follow all the rules of that ritual slaughter.

Q- What is stunning?

Majority of the conventional slaughterhouses use some form of stunning - i.e., to subdue and immobilize the animal before the slaughter. The type of stunning varies depending upon the animal. Chickens are inserted into electric water; lambs and goats are stunned with electric rods, and cows are stunned using captive bolt pistol or pneumatic stunner. Stunning may not kill the animal before the actual slaughter, but it is a very serious matter, according to some scholars. According to them, if possible, one should get away from that practice for the ritual zabiha slaughter.

Therefore, One Stop Halal has decided not to do stunning before the animal is actually slaughtered.

There are certain products for which you cannot exceed maximum allowable quantity per order. For example: You can only add one 10 lb of rice per order. If you want to order more bags of rice, then you will have to place another order. This is enforced so as not to increase your shipping cost and weight of the shipment.

PROPOSITION 65 WARNING


Q- I’m seeing warnings on foods. What do they mean?

Some of One Stop Halal’s foods are sold with a warning that consuming the product can expose you to a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

These warnings are required by California’s Proposition 65 law, which requires businesses to notify California consumers of the presence of chemicals on the Proposition 65 list under certain circumstances. Proposition 65 does not ban the sale of any products; it only requires warnings. You may have seen similar warnings on other foods and products, or in supermarkets, coffee shops, airports, hotels and restaurants. There are over 900 substances identified on the Proposition 65 chemical list, and new chemicals are added to the list every year.

Certain listed chemicals, including heavy metals, are naturally occurring and are widely distributed throughout the environment in air, water, soil and rocks. As a result, these types of chemicals are often found in commonly eaten foods even though they are not intentionally added to the food.

Return to Top

Q- Does a warning mean that the foods aren’t safe?

One Stop Halal is committed to selling foods that are safe to consume and also comply with all applicable laws. California’s Proposition 65 is not a food or product safety law, but a notification law that uses very stringent standards to establish when notifications are required. Although you should always take heed of warnings, the presence of a Proposition 65 warning does not mean that the product is unsafe. One Stop Halal has no reason to believe that any of the items we sell are unsafe for consumption or use.

Return to Top

Q- Why don’t all similar products on the market carry the same warning?

Some suppliers elect not to provide warnings, because they have concluded that they are not required to do so under Proposition 65. Others take a different approach, sometimes because they have been involved in a Proposition 65 settlement and are required to provide certain warnings under the settlement agreement.

Return to Top

Q- Still confused about Proposition 65?

You can find more detailed information about Proposition 65 on the website for the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) at www.oehha.ca.gov or visit www.P65Warnings.ca.gov.
