Is it OK to eat the Halal meat availble in the USA, with Halal stamp.

Thanks

:الجواب ومنہ الصواب

Not every meat available in the US with a halal stamp is trustworthy. Unfortunately, a kind of dishonesty is being exercised against the Muslim Ummah in the name of Halal Meat. 

Regrettably, out of mere greed for more money, the meat sellers generally resort to lying and cheating by misstating the true status of meat to their customers. We have witnessed and experienced on several occasions this kind of falsification happening. Therefore, unless you find a truly certified source of meat, better be cautious.

Currently many restaurants, meat shops and slaughterhouses in several US States are certified by the “HMS - Halal Monitoring Services of Sharia Board of America”, which provide valid Zabiha Halal meat.
