Kosher meat starts with selecting a healthy animal, not sick or injured, must be restrained so slaughtering could be done correctly and painlessly. If the restraining causes any bruise, meat can not be kosher. Any injured animal must be kept until injuries are healed.

Eesophagus, Trachea, Carotid Arteries, and Jugular veins are cut in one quick incision by a “qualified person” with special religious rituals performed.

Draining blood completely. Essential organs of the animal like lungs & heart are examined, making sure of no defects. The lungs must be inflated to check for holes, cists and lung diseases.

Removing non-Kosher parts, blood vessels, sciatic nerve, fats from around usable organs, are the basic requirements, and there maybe more Kosher laws too,depending on whom you ask.


قُلْ لَا أَجِدُ فِي مَا أُوحِيَ إِلَيَّ مُحَرَّمًا عَلَى طَاعِمٍ يَطْعَمُهُ إِلَّا أَنْ يَكُونَ مَيْتَةً أَوْ دَمًا مَسْفُوحًا أَوْ لَحْمَ خِنْزِيرٍ فَإِنَّهُ رِجْسٌ أَوْ فِسْقًا أُهِلَّ لِغَيْرِ اللَّهِ بِهِ فَمَنِ اضْطُرَّ غَيْرَ بَاغٍ وَلَا عَادٍ فَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ

(Muhammad), tell them, “I do not find anything which has been made unlawful to eat in what has been revealed to me except carrion, blood flowing from the body, pork and the flesh of the animals slaughtered without the mention of the name of God. However, in an emergency, when one does not have any intention of rebelling or transgressing against the law, your Lord will be All-forgiving and All-merciful.


إِنَّمَا حَرَّمَ عَلَيْكُمُ الْمَيْتَةَ وَالدَّمَ وَلَحْمَ الْخِنْزِيرِ وَمَا أُهِلَّ لِغَيْرِ اللَّهِ بِهِ فَمَنِ اضْطُرَّ غَيْرَ بَاغٍ وَلَا عَادٍ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ

He has only forbidden you what dies of itself and blood and flesh of swine and that over which any other name than that of Allah has been invoked, but whoever is driven to necessity, not desiring nor exceeding the limit, then surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

Foot notes and conclusion:

Kosher meat requirements include both Quran requirements, therefore it is Halal too .

In line with acknowledgement of Moses and Jesus, as true prophets of God, speaking of the same truth, having almost the same or similar eating requirements is quite logical.

None of prophets are any superior, or inferior. Quran: 3:84, 2:136, 2:285.

New testament:

Matthew 5:17 says: “Do not misunderstand why I have come. It isn’t to cancel the laws of Moses and the warnings of the prophets. No!
I came to fulfill them, and to make them all come true.”

Parallel in Quran 3:3 “This book is  reaffirmation of Torah and Bible”.

Muslims influenced by their regional culture add their own twists to Quran;

Watering the animal, laying it in direction of Mecca, requiring the slaughterer to be Muslim are additions that leads to discrimination.

Both additions and discrimination are against other Quran teaching.

Sectarian & cultural additions causes divisions. It’s roots are in human error, Hear say (HADITH).

Could eating anything be right?

Prohibition of eating pork is still in old testament, but not practiced by most Christians. A story taken out of its context by organized religion. Story is that when Jesus was asked in an occasion about what to eat and what not to eat, He said; “what comes out of your mouth is more important that what goes in.”

Importance of “words coming out”, should not be used to nullify the Kosher law. If Jesus was introducing himself a Jewish Rabbi, revolting against organized religion of his time is true, would a Rabbi eat or allow others to eat non-Kosher or pork?

Chapter 3 of Quran, starts with acknowledging all previous prophets and their well destined truthful and honest followers. In verse 93 it claims some of restrictions are self imposed restrictions by children of Jacob, Israel and Christians and is recommending that:  “those who want to be truthful, to read their book”.

  • Leviticus chapter 1 and chapter 7:11 on sacrifice instructions, includes being mindful of God.

  • Deuteronomy, 14:8, HOLY BIBLE, page 150, New Living Translation, 2004, still has Pork prohibition for all who can read.

  • Revelation 22 18-20 explains these laws should not be added to or subtracted from. It is how bible ends in its last few sentences.

Differences comes mostly from asking the clergy’s opinion, instead of asking for the source. Asking “the expert” is easier than reading the source. Therefore people select the clergy who offers easier rules and says what they like to hear. A complete circle, abandoning the law, while it is still in the book.
