What is the meaning of Halal?
Halal is an Arabic word meaning lawful. It’s the Islamic term which indicates what’s allowed for Muslims. The opposite of Halal is Haram, meaning sinful. The word Haram is used to indicate what’s prohibited. In the Qur’an is written what’s allowed and what isn’t. Halal is important to Atlas Halal Products B.V.

The Islamic method of slaughter: The animal should be lawful and also correspond to the universal and ethical health standards. The animal will be slaughtered alive and while slaughtered, the name of ALLAH (God, Creator of universe and life) will be called over the animal. The animal will be slaughtered by a Muslim slaughter using a sharpened knife to make a deep incision cutting the throat of the animal. It’s the quickest and less painful way to die. With that one cut, the trachea, gullet and two carotid arteries will be cut through. After that, the animal needs to get enough time to bleed before they procede with the slaughter.
During the slaughter, the name of ALLAH must be called: “Bismillah, Allahu Akbar” (in the name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most Merciful).
