Mission Statement

As a group of Muslim professionals in different fields and, since 2015, our mission at Alberta Halal Monitoring Certification Council has always been that of guidance and support to companies wishing to broaden their Halal market potential, whether local or abroad. To meet this demand, products would need to be safe from contamination of non-halal substances and the only way to prove such compliance is with Halal Certification. To successfully aid our customers, our integrity is critical, as is our ability to seek solutions which are beneficial to both our Muslim community and our business partners in Canada and worldwide. We commit to high ethical and professional standards that embody the principles of honesty, respect and fairness stated in the Holy Quran. We demonstrate ethical conduct and inspire trust as individuals and as an organization.

The goals we strive to achieve are clear and simple:

  • Strengthen the Halal growing industry and business through the expertise that AHMCC has acquired over the years regarding Halal certification and its norms and standards.
  • Work with business, government, religious scholars, organisations and academia to promote the Halal business by providing quality standards.
  • Foster Halal industrial development and commercialization in Canada and worldwide.

What is Halal?

Halal is an Arabic term in Islam which means permissible, allowed. Its antonym is Haram. According to the dietary rules of Islam, halal refers to the foods that are fit for Muslim consumption.

Muslims are allowed to eat the meat of the these animals.

  • Domesticated Birds
  • Camels
  • Cattle
  • Sheep
  • Goats
  • Deer
  • Rabbits
  • Fish

With the exception of fish, Muslims will only be allowed to consume the meat of the aforementioned animals if

  • They are slaughtered by a believer in Allah.
  • At the time of slaughter the slaughter man recites, “I begin with Allah’s name and Allah is the Greatest,” or at the very least, “I begin with Allah’s name.”
  • With a very sharp knife the slaughter man manually swiftly cuts the oesophagus, trachea and the two jugular veins of the animal in a single cut. In the event of him being unable to cut all four he must cut at least any three of them.

Muslims are allowed to eat the meat of the these animals.

  • Pigs
  • Carnivores
  • Birds of prey
  • Rodents
  • Insects
  • Domesticated donkeys
  • Animals that were slaughtered without being blessed
  • Animals that were dead prior to slaughter
  • Muslims are also not allowed to have any intoxicants such as alcohol nor any blood.

Halal is important to Muslims because it is a divine dictate. Allah has issued the following orders in the Holy Quran.

  • Mankind, eat whatever on the earth is lawful and good, and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is a clear enemy to you.” (Chapter 2, verse 168)
  • “Messengers, eat from the good foods [We have provided you] and perform righteous deeds.” (Chapter 23, verse 51)
  • “You who believe, eat from the good things We have provided you and be grateful to Allah.” (Chapter 2, verse 172)
  • “So eat of that [meat] upon which Allah’s name has been taken, if you are believers in His verses.” (Chapter 6, verse 118)
  • “And do not eat of that [meat] upon which Allah’s name has not been taken, for indeed, it is a grave sin.” (Chapter 6, verse121)
  • Compromising the dietary laws of Islam yields serious spiritual drawbacks. This is made clear in the following narrations
  • Abu Hurayrah reported, “The Prophet (peace be upon him) made mention of a man who undergoes a lengthy journey, dishevelled and dusty. He extends his hands to the sky [calling] ‘My Master, my Master.’ However, his food is unlawful, his drink is unlawful, his clothes are unlawful, and he has been nourished with unlawful [foods]. So how will he be answered?” (Sahih Muslim)
  • Saʿd reported, “Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said, ‘Saʿd, make sure your food is pure. [By doing so] you will become one whose prayers are [always] answered. I swear by the Being in whose hands my soul lies, verily, [when] a servant [of Allah] throws down a haram morsel into his stomach, no deed of his is accepted [by Allah] for forty days.’” (Tabarani)
  • Abu Bakr reported that Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said, ‘That body will not enter paradise that has been nourished with haram.’” (Bayhaqi)
