As per stringent Muslim dietary compulsions, Muslims are permitted to consume only certain types of foods that are precisely known as ‘halal’ or lawful. ‘Haraam’ or unlawful food is not permitted to any Muslim unless under extreme conditions. Prophet Muhammad and the Quran have defined guidelines for Muslims on what to eat and what not to eat.

According to this Muslim law, animals must be slaughtered with a rapid and deep section on the neck, thus cutting the jugular veins and carotid arteries of both sides. In this form of slaughter, there will be lesser blood shed before the actual death of the animal. Other ways such as electrocuting the animal is not allowed under this law.
