Do you know what is 'Halal'?
Halal or Zabihah?
"Halal" is an all encompassing Arabic word that literally means "permissible". The Holy Quran and Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) provide guidelines on what is considered permissible, and therefore Halal and what is considered forbidden or "Haram".
The word "zabihah" is a specific Arabic word that literally means "slaughtered". It is derived from the Arabic word “Thabih” which means "slaughter". In some cultures this word is pronounced “zabih”. Hence the term zabihah.
