Halal is an arabic word that means “permissible”. When talking about food, it refers to food that is permissible by the Islamic law. It is associated mainly to meat processed and prepared in terms of the requirements laid out by the law. The word halal is contrasted to the word ‘haram’ which means forbidden. This refers to the food that is prohibited for consumption by the Islamic law. Dhabihah is the authorised method of slaughter when it comes to all meat sources excluding sea life as per Islamic law. The head of an animal that is cut is aligned with the Qiblah. The animals are to be slaughtered only upon utterance of the Islamic prayer “Bismillah”. The slaughter can be performed by a Muslim or an adherent of religions. Blood must be drained from veins. Additionally, an animal that did not die of natural causes must not be consumed by Muslims.
