Fatima points out that Mercy doesn’t have any halal butchers and she has to rely on kosher butchers.
When you live in small communities, it is difficult to get fresh halal meat. I feel that we are lucky in that sense. Even though our community is small (25 families), we still have farms in neighbouring towns that carry halal certified meat. Our local butcher really believes in the quality of the halal meat and he imports it in; so we are able to enjoy fresh halal poulty frequently. We get our lamb frozen but unfortunately we don’t have access to cattle farms. We have to travel to a major metropolitan area to get fresh beef.
Do you have difficulty getting halal meat in your community? What did you have to do to make it easy to get fresh halal meat?
