Halal (Arabic) is a term designating any object or an action which is permissible to use or engage in, according to Islamic law. The term is used to designate food seen as permissible according to Islamic law. This method of slaughtering animals consists of using a well sharpened knife to make a swift, deep incision that cuts the front throat, the carotid artery, wind pipe and jugular veins but leaves the spinal cord intact.
