LAWFUL AND UNLAWFUL MEAT IN ISLAM

THE MEAT: LAWFUL AND UNLAWFUL MEAT IN ISLAM

THE MEAT:
Lawful and unlawful in islam
For a meat to be lawful for Muslims, the following five -
conditions must be satisfied:—
(1) The animal should be a Halal (lawful) one, according to
the Shari'ah. Dog, Cat, monkey or the meat of any such
Haram (unlawful) animal can be lawful for a Muslim
only in case of extreme urgency where a person is
threatened with starvation and his life has to be saved. We
read in the Qur'an : "Allah has forbidden you what dies of
itself, and blood, and the flesh of swine, and that over
which any other name than that of Allah has been
invoked. But whoever is driven by necessity, without
willful disobedience nor transgressing due limits, then he
is guiltless. Surely Allah is forgiving, merciful." (2: 173).
(2) The animal should be properly slaughtered and not dipped
in boiling water or killed by electric shocks. Any method
other than slaughter adopted to kill the animal will not be
lawful. Stunning by bolt shot or electric shock before
slaughter is not valid and should be avoided as it is
tantamount to torturing an animal which is inhumane and
unlawful in Islam. The tendency of the Shari'ah (Islamic
Law) is to make the slaughter more humane by reducing
the suffering of the animal. The Holy Prophet (sallallahu
alayhi wasallam) is reported to have said that if you must
slaughter, slaughter in the best possible manner, sharpen
your knife every time before you slaughter but not in
front of the animal to be slaughtered. Do not slaughter an
animal in the presence of other animals and feed and rest

the animal before slaughter. The idea is to stop cruelty to
animals— a practice still prevalent in the West in various
forms and guises despite claims to the contrary, as we
shall see later.
(3) The name of Allah should be recited while slaughtering the
animal. This recitation may be done by a Muslim or by a Jew or
Christian in his own language. The Holy Qur'an describes that
slaughter as unlawful on which the name of Allah has not been
recited: “And eat not of that whereon Allah's name hath not
been mentioned, for Lo! It is abomination. Lo! The devils do
inspire their minions to dispute with you. But if you obey them,
ye will be in truth idolaters’." (6 : 122).
(4) For meat to be lawful, it is not simply enough that the animal
has been slaughtered by “People of the Book." It is very
essential that the act of slaughter should be performed according
to their prescribed religious rites and practices. For instance,
if a Muslim kills a chicken by twisting his neck, it would be a
carcass, or haram (unlawful). If the same method of killing is
adopted by a Jew or Christian, then how such a chicken can
become Halal (lawful)? Slaughtering consists in cutting the
jugular veins of the neck, so that all the blood is drained out.
The spinal cord must not be cut, because the nerve fibres to the
heart may be damaged during the process, causing cardiac arrest
and hence stagnation of the blood in the blood vessels of the
animal. Since blood is also forbidden in Islam, it is incumbent to
see to it that the blood is completely drained from the animal
during slaughtering. This meat is then called halal or lawful.

Like other Islamic teachings, dietary restrictions in Islam relate
to material well being, even as they are spiritually significant.
(5) The animals should be in lawful possession of the person who
owns them and free from any apparent or hidden impurities.
Similarly, they should not be slaughtered on an idol or grave etc.
The slaughterer must be sane. Slaughter is not allowed to be
carried by a mentally deranged person, a drunkard, a child not
able to discriminate or a Magian. It would be desirable if the
animal is made to lie facing Qibla during the act of slaughter.
The Islamic manner of slaughtering an animal is to slit its throat,
saying “Bismillah” (In the name of Allah), thus recognizing that
its life is taken only by Allah's permission to meet the lawful
need of food, and allowing all the blood to drain out. The meat
sold commercially in the U.S.A. and European countries etc., is
not lawful (halal) for Muslims, since animals are slaughtered
there, "Bismillah" is not said over them and the methods of
slaughter are also objectionable. The Holy Qur'an states:—
"This day are (all) good things made lawful for you.
The food of those who have received the Scripture is
lawful for you, and your food is lawful for them
And so are the virtuous women of the believers and
the virtuous women of those who received the Scripture before you are (lawful for you) when ye have
given them their marriage portions and live with them
in honor, not in fornication, nor taking them as secret
concubines. Whoso denieth the faith, his work is vain
and he will be among the losers in the Hereafter.

THE MEAT: LAWFUL AND UNLAWFUL IN ISLAM

The leading religious luminaries of the times have in
exposition of the above Qur'anic verse stated as under:—
(i) "The authorities on the commentary of the Holy Qur'an
like Ibn Abbas, Abu Umama, Mujahid, Saeed bin Jubair,
lkrimah, Ata, Hasan, Makhool, Ibrahim, Nakhi, Suddi,
Muqatil have commented upon the food of the " people of
the Book " along-with their slaughtered meat (Zabihah).
This issue is based on the consensus of Muslims, as the
meat of lawful animals slaughtered by them is permissible
for Muslims because they (People of the Book) consider as
unlawful any flesh of an animal which has been slaughtered
in the name of any other being than God. They recite the
name of God while slaughtering animals, although they are
guilty of attributing to God certain things of which He is
free, elevated and glorified as He is". (Ibn kathir, Vol. Ill p.
19).
(ii) "If a person belonging to the " People of the Book" does
not recite the name of God; or recites the name of a deity
other than God while slaughtering an animal, the meat of
such an animal is un-lawful. This is the view of Abu'd
Darda, Ubada bin samit and a group of the Companions of
the Holy Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). The same is
also the view of Imam Abu Hanifa, Imam Abu yusuf, Imam
Muhammad and Zufar. Imam Nakh'l and Iman Nawawi
(rahmatullah alayh) are of the view that eating the meat of
such slaughtered animals is hateful in the eyes of Allah."
(Abu Hayyan Andulsi in BAHRE-MUHEET Vol. IV, p.
131.)
(iii) "In our opinion, the slaughtered animals of the "
People of the Book " are unlawful for Muslims which have
been slaughtered in such a way that the name of God has
not been intentionally recited at the time of slaughter or
