When Hubby and I started living together, it was obvious to me that there would only be halal meat in the house. It was early days and I was just starting to learn about Islam, so I did some research on halal food too.
Before our first trip to Poland together I was searching for halal food there, and remember coming across a blog, where someone claimed that as they can't get halal meat, it's enough to say 'Bismillah' ('In the name of Allah') before eating - at that time Hubby just explained to me that it doesn't work like that.
Recently I came across this notion during a discussion on one of the Facebook groups, so I thought it would be a good idea to clarify the issue.
So, what is the truth?
