In the search of halal meat
In the late 70's and early 80's most Muslims migrated to the US. There came a time when many Muslims stopped eating meat due to lack of source. Long distances were traveled by Muslims and still not enough quantity for a whole family. In those years it was very difficult finding halal meat. By the mid 80's additional sources of meat were found, but not authentically Zabiha halal. Meaning that meat was machine slaughtered not hand slaughtered (Zabiha). 60% of the Muslims population had no choice but to eat the non authentic Zabiha meat.
The founder of Zabiha Halal meat
In 1989 Mr. Khan approached a poultry plant in upstate New York; he arranged a way for all Muslims to have hand slaughter (Zabiha), halal poultry. Not only poultry, but due to an increase on market demand we have supplied the need of other meat by-products. In this poultry plant he arranged for whole birds and all poultry parts (chicken legs, wings, boneless breast, boneless thighs, etc.)
Definition of Zabiha:
The term Zabiha comes from the Arabic root zabaha, which means "to kill (by slitting the throat); to slaughter, butcher, to murder, slay; to sacrifice." So, Zabiha meat is meat slaughtered by slitting the throat of the animal. In this context, however, it is used to mean meat slaughtered by a Muslim using the properly prescribed method as is indicated in the Sunnat-an-Nabi (life example of the Prophet PBUH)
The Meat That Is Halal To Muslims Is Described By Allah In The Quran:
Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine, and that on which hath been invoked the name of other than Allah; that which hath been killed by strangling, or by a violent blow, or by a headlong fall, or by being gored to death; that which hath been (partly) eaten by a wild animal; unless ye are able to slaughter it (in due form); that which is sacrificed on stone (altars); (forbidden) also is the division (of meat) by raffling with arrows: that is impiety…"(Quran 5:3)
