Prophetic halal

Prophetic halal when reffered to meat and is the process for it be fit for the followers of monotheistic Abrahamic faiths. Muslims believe that God had previously revealed Himself to the earlier prophets of the Jews and Christians, such as Abraham, Moses, and Jesus. Muslims therefore accept the teachings of both the Jewish Torah and the Christian Gospels. Prophetic halal method relating to a prophet which is deemed as the most humane process for halal/Kosher

What is religious slaughter

In the UK, Jewish and Muslim communities are exempt from legal requirements to stun animals before slaughter.
Shechita (Shechita is the Jewish religious and humane method of slaughtering permitted animalsand poultry for food.
It is the only method of producing kosher meat and poultry allowed by Jewish law.)
and Halal (Prophetic halal- Islamic humane process for slaughter of meat and poultry ) slaughter methods involve a incision made to the animal's throat with a very sharp knife.

Halal & kosher is Protected

Since 1928, Dhabihah/shechita has been protected by various enactments of primary and secondary legislation. Article 9 of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, now incorporated into British law, protects freedom of religious belief and practice.
Dhabihah is performed with a surgically sharp knife, The frontal structures at the neck of permitted animals including the trachea, oesophagus, the carotid arteries and jugular veins are severed in a rapid and uninterrupted action causing an instant drop in blood pressure in the brain.BR>

Poultry is similarly treated though it is unnecessary and impractical to incise all of the blood vessels.
This abrupt loss of pressure results in the immediate and irreversible cessation of consciousness and sensibility to pain.
Proponents of stunning seek to achieve the state of unconsciousness by additional intervention, but Dhabihah humanely incorporates stunning as an integral part of the procedure, which renders the animal insensible to pain, dispatches and exsanguinates with a rapid action.
English law defines "stunning" as "any process which causes immediate loss of consciousness which lasts until death" [The Welfare of Animals (Slaughter or Killing) Regulations 1995 Part I, regulation 2 (1)]. Dhabihah conforms to this requirement.

For Meat to be Halal

For meat to be halal it has to be processed in the Islamic humane process of Non stun, This is not an opinion, its a fact.
There are many slaughter procedures that religions and cultures use around the world. The two that are commercially relevant are the halal and kosher methods practiced by Muslims and Jews respectively. The global trade in red meat and poultry produced using these two methods is substantial, thus the importance of honest, clear labeling and the quality of the meat produced using the methods. Simply put, halal refers to the permissible.
The converse is haram, or what's not allowed. So halal and haram apply to more than just food restrictions. For Muslims, it's haram to cheat and be wasteful while it's halal to earn an honest living and spend prudently. That's not much different to the code of conduct that most people - regardless of religion - subscribe to.
