    I'd be interested in information from Muslims on this. We own a slaughterhouse and several Muslims have inquired about the possibility of Halal slaughter. We are an animal welfare approved facility and, at first glance, Halal slaughter appears incompatible.

    I've read the passages in the Quran which are alluded to when determining if meat is Halal or Haram. It appears to me that the aversion to stunning an animal prior to the slaughter may appear to be in violation of Surah 5, Al-Maidah, verse 3. Forgive my ignorance if there is more.

    The point is, the animal needs to be alive. I see no reason that it must be conscious. This is inhumane and, i would think, humane slaughter is the point. How does stunning the animal, prior to slaughter, go against the intent behindIslamic law?

    Not attempting to be argumentative. We simply would like to accommodate this portion of the community, but within a framework where all parties are comfortable. I can't acquiesce to being a part of some archaic ritual if it causes undo trauma to the animal. I doubt the religious prohibitions would be the same if they knew then what we know now.

    Hey all you muslims out there. Thanks for nothing. Seriously. Next time you are bemoaning the fact that you can't find any halal meat at the local grocery, blame your lack of initiative.

    I am not sure what the anger here is.  How that word should be interpreted is a subject of considerable debate. Current accepted halal standards do not believe in stunning--and most animals welfare standards are not going to allow death by exsanguination.  That is where we are on the issue.

      I'm not angry. That was tongue in cheek. I met with the Muslims who want it done. Great guys. I enjoyed the meeting. They are going to be able to work within the parameters we set forth., I'm looking forward to working with them to get the meat out into the community
