A human being must spend his life aiming to please his creator by worshipping him and obeying his laws and rules. To success of this aim depends on the Halal life system.
For meat to be certified “halal” it must not be from forbidden cuts such as meat from hindquarters for animals such as pork, horse donkeys etc.
