The word halal literally means lawful according to Islamic jurisprudence. In the case of animals, Islamic law guarantees animals certain rights such as:-
- The right to live a minimum amount of time. An animal is given the time to mature naturally without the use of growth hormones or genetically modifying certain traits to grow faster
- The right to offspring
- The right to live according to its natural habitat. This means animals have to be let out of the barn and roam freely when the weather is suitable
- The right to wholesome food that is not harmful, GM corn is hot harmless and it is not natural. Based on many scientific researchs, GMO's are harmful to animals.
- The right to a dignified death, animals must be slaughtered by hand and while doing so the name of Allah SWT must be uttered. Before, during and after the slaughtering certain things has to be followed:-
- The slaughtering knife has to be sharpened so that with one cut the two jugular veins are severed
