Halal Meat

What is the meaning of Halal?

Islam is not a mere religion. It is a way of life with rules and manners governing every facet of life. Since food is an important part of daily life, muslim food laws carry a special significance with regards to Halal products.

Muslims are expected to eat for survival, to maintain good health and not to live for eating. In Islam, eating is considered to be a matter of worship of God like prayer, fasting, charitable donations and other religious activities.

A Muslim eats Halal meals to maintain a strong and healthy physique in order to be able to contribute his knowledge and effort for the welfare of the society. Muslims are supposed to make an effort to obtain the best quality nutritionally.

It is mentioned in a Hadith that the prayer of a person is rejected by Allah if his food is haram. Another Hadith states that hell-fire is more deserving of the flesh which has been nourished with haram.

Australia is a multicultural and multi-religious country. The problem of Islamic food and Halal vs. Haram with respect to food thus becomes an issue because some non-Muslims may not understand the problems and sensitivities of the Muslims.

This is compounded by the fact that Australian manufacturers are either unaware of Muslims requirements or choose to ignore them as insignificant.

It is therefore in this situation that the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC) is endeavoring to establish the highest standards in the sanctioning of foods as Halal, particularly as it concerns Australian Halal meats and Halal meat suppliers.

AFIC is the Halal certification authority and issues Halal certificates to companies such as ours for the practice of Halal slaughtering.
