Halal Meat Shop
The term ‘Halal’ is frequently used in the Islamic religion and we come across it in many restaurants and eating joints. However, very few non-Muslims understand what this sacred word means and how much value it holds in the lives of devout Muslims. Simply explained, Halal means anything that is permissible in Islamic culture. The opposite of the word is ‘Haraam’, which means something sinful and although it is mostly used in terms of talking about food or drink, Halal is also applicable to other areas of life. You may have often heard of Halal meat products and these are specially served by certain specialty restaurants and stores only as there is a definite traditional ritual which precedes the production of such kind of food. For starters, Halal meat is one which wherein the slaughter is done by a Muslim person who invokes the name of Allah by saying, ‘Bismillah’ and then repeating ‘Allahu akbar’ . There is a specific way in which the animal is required to be cut to be called Halal meat. The animal’s death is caused by cutting the windpipe, throat and blood vessels in the neck while it is alive. The spinal cord should remain untouched and the blood from the veins has to be drained.

The best place in Toronto to obtain this kind of meat is Can-Asia Grocers which make sure that their Halal meat is created using a special production method, keeping in mind the traditions of the Middle Eastern and Asian cultures.
