  2. walaykum salaam, sorry for taking so long to answer. As far as we know this is halal, it comes from a private slaughter place, muslim man. We have not seen them slaughter the meat, but by talking with them and getting their confirmation we feel this is halal, according to Quran inshaAllah. However we can never be sure of anything, only Allaah knows for sure. But brother to brother and sister to sister in Islam we need to sometimes take their word, unless there is reason for not believing them.

  3. May I in, in your late discussion about how they perform the slaughter of the animal? to be sure it is in accordance with Shariah Law the slaughter or abattoir must be licensed first before they can perform as such, it must be supervised by a licensed slaughter man pls refer to Philippine National Standard for Halal Agriculture and fishery product and Code of Practice for slaughtering procedures of large ruminants and Poultry, Department of Agriculture.

    1. Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately I don't know how they slaughter the meat. Only have information from the people at the shop who said the above mentioned about the frozen meat they sell. I am going to Manila soon, and I might just drop by there and double check with them, even see some certificates on the matter. And I will inform them of what has been mentioned by Halal Food and Nutrition Council Philippines.

      Thank you :)

      Halal Manila!
