What is Shar’i Zabiha Certification?

Shar’i Halal Zabiha Certification is a process of evaluation and confirmation through investigation and inspection, that a Halal animal or bird has met the Shar’ee requirements of slaughter of Shar’i Zabiha.

The certification is a statement that the Zabiha process is being independently monitored by the staff or a representative of The Rahmat-e-Alam Foundation’s Halal Zabiha Committee.

The Certificate of Halal Zabiha confirms that the cattle and/or poultry meet the strictest standards of Shar’i Zabiha.
