Introduction to Halal Monitoring Services (HMS)

Halal Monitoring Services (HMS) represents a pivotal initiative under the auspices of the Shariah Board of America, specifically orchestrated by the Shar’i Zabiha Committee. This dedicated service has been established to uphold the integrity and accessibility of hand-slaughtered Zabiha Halal meat across a broad geographic expanse. With over 25 years of diligent service, the committee has significantly contributed to the certification, monitoring, and facilitation of Halal meat, ensuring its compliance with Islamic laws and principles.

The Inception of HMS and Its Mission

The establishment of Halal Monitoring Services marks a significant milestone in the efforts to enhance and expand the Halal meat supply chain throughout the United States. The mission of HMS is twofold:

Raising Awareness:

HMS is dedicated to increasing public awareness about the significance of consuming Halal meat. This educational endeavor aims to enlighten both Muslim and non-Muslim communities about the ethical, spiritual, and health aspects of Halal consumption.

Supporting Muslim Businesses:

Another key objective is to assist Muslim businesses in acquiring certified and monitored hand-slaughtered Zabiha Halal meat. By facilitating access to compliant meat products, HMS plays a crucial role in supporting the economic and spiritual well-being of the Muslim community.

Objectives and Achievements

The foundational goals and accomplishments of the Halal Monitoring Services are multifaceted and deeply rooted in Islamic dietary laws. These include:

Certification and Monitoring

HMS is committed to certifying and monitoring hand-slaughtered Zabiha Halal meat. This rigorous process ensures that all meat products meet the highest standards of Halal compliance, from the moment of slaughter to the point of sale.

Expanding the Halal Network

A significant achievement has been the establishment of a vast network of certified slaughterhouses, grocery stores, and restaurants. As of December 2022, this network extends across several cities in 23 states within the US and has also reached into Canada, showcasing a substantial footprint in North America.

Accessibility of Zabiha Halal Meat

One of the core missions of HMS is to make hand-slaughtered Zabiha Halal meat widely accessible. By doing so, HMS ensures that Muslims across America can easily obtain meat that is lawful and pure, fulfilling their dietary needs in accordance with Islamic teachings.
