Is Senate Meat and Poultry in New York halal or not? I’ll be thankful for a prompt response in this matter.
Walaikumassalam Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu
As per our knowledge, Senate Poultry was previously certified by the Shariah Board of America’s New York Zabiha Monitoring committee, however they are not certified anymore, therefore, rendering a ruling about their meat is not possible at this point.
The general Shar‘ai ruling about meat and Zabihah is that until one has firm belief about its permissibility, it is impermissible to consume it. Thererfore, one should make every effort to buy meat from the businesses that currently hold a Halal Zabiha Certificate from ahl-e-haq ulamah kiram.
