WHAT IS HALAL CHICKEN

Halal chicken refers to chicken meat that is prepared according to Islamic dietary laws, as prescribed in the Quran. In Arabic, “halal” means “permissible” or “lawful.” These dietary laws are an important aspect of Islamic practices and dictate what Muslims can and cannot eat.

The process of producing halal chicken involves several key requirements:

  1. Slaughtering method: The chicken must be slaughtered by a Muslim individual who is of sound mind and has reached the age of maturity. The slaughterer pronounces the name of Allah (God) and makes a specific Islamic blessing (Tasmiyah) before the act of slaughtering, ensuring the chicken’s death is swift and humane.
  2. Absence of certain forbidden substances: The chicken must be free from any prohibited substances, such as pork or its by-products, blood, alcohol, and any other haram (forbidden) elements in Islamic dietary laws.
  3. Health and cleanliness: The chicken should be raised and handled in a clean and hygienic environment. The poultry farm and processing facilities should follow specific cleanliness and safety guidelines.
  4. Halal certification: In many countries, halal certification authorities inspect and certify the chicken as halal to ensure that it meets all the necessary requirements.

It’s important to note that halal applies not only to chicken but also to other types of meat, as well as various food products and ingredients. For Muslims, consuming halal food is considered an essential part of their faith and adherence to Islamic principles.
