★ Why Halal? 為何清真[哈腊(讀音)]?

       Halal is One of the Most Humane Methods of Slaughtering Animals.
       Muslims are taught through the Qurān that all animals should be treated with respect and well cared for. The goal is to slaughter the animal in a way limiting the pain the animal will undergo.
        When an animal is slaughtered, the jugular veins are cut and the blood is allowed to drain from the animal. This way not only reduces the pains to the limit but also makes the fat along with the toxic go out rapidly with the blood.
      Halal is One of the Most Humane Ways of Treating Animals.
      Utilitarian injections or intakes such as hormone, antibiotic and pesticide are forbidden. Cattles such as ox or sheep should be fed with grass only, so artificial fodder is not allowed. 
      It is allowed to consume water animals only when they die naturally after leaving water, which allows their soul to leave the body peacefully. Any ways of hammering, slaughtering, or boiling-alive water animals with nervous system are forbidden. 
      No matter land or water animals, they should be treated with respect both in their lifetime and at the dying moment.
      Halal is One of the Healthiest Ways of Diet.
      Āllah teaches us the righteous way of diet for us to be healthy both physically and mentally. The ways of raising and slaughtering animals provide us with clean and healthy meat. Following the Halal ways keeps us away from toxicant things that harm not only our bodies but also our minds. Āllah didnít ask us to be vegetarians. He only asks us to follow His guidelines for us to enjoy food and life He blessed in the righteous and enjoyable way. 
      阿拉教導我們正當的飲食方式,目的讓我們身心都得健康,這些飼養及宰殺動物的方式為我們提供乾淨健康的肉品,遵守清真[哈腊(讀音)]飲食方式,將使我們遠離會毒害我們身體與心靈的有害物質。  阿拉並不要求我們素食,而是要我們遵循  祂所訂定的規則,讓我們以正當方式盡情享用  祂所賜予我們的美食與生活。
