Pre-Feasibility Study Abattoir (Slaughterhouse)PREF-35/May, 2002/1
 I find not in the message received by me byinspiration any (meat) forbidden to be eaten by onewho wishes to eat it, unless it be dead meat, or blood poured forth, or the flesh of swine, for it is anabomination or, what is impious, (meat) on which aname has been invoked, other than God's. But (evenso), if a person is forced by necessity, without willful disobedience, or transgressing due limits,thy lord is oft forgiving, most merciful.(Al- Anam 145)
The Quran has numerous injunctions, instructing its followers to choose andconsume good and wholesome foodstuffs. Islam places a very strong emphasis oncleanliness and hygiene in every sphere of life. As such, before performing our dailyprayers, ablution, as means of cleaning ourselves, is compulsory, and must beperformed in the correct manner. The concept of cleanliness is also extended tomatters, especially in context of food and drink.Islam has introduced the concept of slaughter, whereby a naturally Halal animalwould have to be properly slaughtered prior to consumption. The act of slaughteringis to ensure the quality of meat and to avoid any microbial contamination. Forexample, a dead but unslaughtered animal is normally associated with disease.Therefore, slaughtering is mandatory to ensure the complete drainage of blood fromthe animal's body, thus minimizing the chance of microbial infection. This iscompatible with the overall concept of cleanliness that is always emphasized inIslam.To determine the Halal/Haram status of foodstuffs and other materials, Islam haslaid general guidelines on this matter, namely:
All the raw materials and ingredients used must be Halal.
Naturally Halal animals, such as cattle, goats etc. must be slaughtered accordingto Islamic rites, the rituals specified.
The act must be performed by a mentally sound Muslim, to sever the blood andrespiratory channels of the animal, using a very sharp cutting tool such as aknife.
The Halal ingredient must not be mixed, or even come into contact with Harammaterials, during storage, transport, cooking, serving, etc.The production of Halal food is not only beneficial to Muslims, but also to non-muslim food producers, by means of an increased market acceptance of theirproducts.
