This is a general thread in which anything about Halal can be tackled. (kinds of food? food preparation? the ritual and spiritual overtones? what is permissible Shariah? what is not permissible Shariah? dietary laws? and etc) Moreover you can recommend names of food, places where the food can be bought or restaurants that serve the food.

Uhm... All I know is that pork and alcohol is not allowed and that the animal you are eaten has to be killed from the throat by a sharp knife or whatever to spare tehm the pain while dying .... and... I don't know lol.
Where I live most food is halaal so we don't really have to worry much about that...

It has basically all the rules of Kosher with a few exceptions.

Muslims are permitted to eat Kosher food too, since it's sacrificed in God's name and follows the same dietary restrictions.

I'm Muslim too, and I only eat Halal.
If I go to the west, and can't find Halal and then I'll settle for Kosher.

Well I can't eat/drink food that is forbidden (i.e pork, alcohol). Like for instance hot-dogs, nothing wrong with them except when I go to the grocery store, you have the option between halal or non-halal. I can't lie their are times where I just don't know all the ingredients going into my mouth. A few times I remember I was chewing the gum ''Trident Splash'' and my friend (expert in non-halal food) told me it contained gelatin. *GASP* first then I spitted it out. It's the way it is, now I'm more aware because I actually take the time to read the ingredients. I'm sometimes confused on distinguishing between the two kinds of gelatin. So it's nearly impossible nowadays to be 100% halal, but you can always do your best. Just be aware of your food and you should be fine. Best way to guarantee, is to eat your own cultural food. You can't make mistakes with that Sorry for this long paragraphe, I've been living with this issue for a long while.

There are a few rituals I know such as how to kill chickens and cows and they don't have any "food preparation".
They can't eat pork and drink alcohol which I agree with them.

The reason why we don't eat pork is because you can get that type of disease when pork is not well cooked ..I forgot the name.And it isn't healthy ... Also we kill animals that way to spare them pain but also because they have to lose a lot of blood because we don't eat meat full of blood it's because It can give you fatal diseases. Also when the animal is slaughtered it has to be a Muslim person because you have to ask permission or if you want thank god before killing the animal. An example : When killing some guy in counter strike, you would say something like this : Take this bitch! (lol). Well since animals are god's creation we have to thank god for giving us this animal and apologize to the animal that is being slaughtered (or thank the animal). A lot of people are getting it wrong about why we eat Halal. Hope you understand, at least a little lol.

Nowadays there's a lot of Halal, everywhere It's pretty hard not to find Halal. Even when I don't find Halah, I'll eat eggs or sea food, and after a week or so, I go to a big city (or go to a Halal farm ---- really forgot what it's called) and bring back with me MEAT MEAT MEAT :lol:. In my opinion, it's not really needful to eat Kosher --- maybe back to the old days, but now ... it just becomes an excuse not to eat Halal.

ps : Just wanted to mention, (lots of people forgot to say that) there's some yogurts, jellos,marshmallows..etc are not halal because they contain ''gelatin'' it's a translucent, colourless, brittle, nearly tasteless solid substance, extracted from the collagen inside animals' connective tissue. But then again there's a problem... there's 2 kind of gelatin ... the animal one and the herbal one....in the ingredients of the product you'll be buying they never mention witch one it is. So this Islamic site (forgot the name ...I'll edit later when I'll find it) published witch products you're buying are ''ok'' or ''not ok'' It shouldn't really be a problem because now they started writing on the wrap if it's Halal...

It's also okay for Muslim to eat the meat from the animal slaughtered by Christians or Jews... or so i think.

Quran 5:3

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. ...


Edit: Sorry, it's 5:5.
