COSTCO has admitted to several Islamic groups that their lamb is sacrificed according to Islamic Standards and is fully certified as HALAL meat, something that Christians in the world and Jews in the world need to be aware of.

Below are snoips of the original articles where this information came from

Might be kind of fun to put all those stickers on the pork products.

I was born and raised in the Middle East specifically Lebanon. Where I went to a Christian school and used to recite the prayers and listen to our teachers reading from the Bible. I also have had a lot of Christian friends and neighbors whom I spent a lot of time with, had dinners and lunches with, had a lot of open discussions about religion, celebrated Christmas and Easter with.
Let me tell you something Allah and Ilah are Arabic words of God. And that is the word that I’ve heard from all the Christians that I knew my whole life and read in the Arabic bible with my own eyes. On top of that, in the Aramaic language which was the language that Jesus spoke, the word Alaha means God. In the Hebrew language it’s Elohim and Eloah. So as you notice Allah, Ilah, Alaha, Elohim, and Eloah, they all mean God.

As to halal slaughtering, the word halal means permissible. And halal slaughtering consists of using a well-sharpened knife to make a swift, deep incision that cuts the front of the throat, the carotid artery, windpipe, and jugular veins to cause the least amount of suffering to the animal. Allah’s name must be pronounced during slaughter (bismillah Allahou Akbar) which means” in the name of God and God is the greatest”.
In the Middle East Muslims eat from Christian butchers and Christians eat from Muslim butchers because over there halal (permissible) is the only way of killing the animals. It has nothing to do with sacrificing the animal to Allah.
Sacrificing to God is a whole different thing which we do when celebrating the sacrifice holiday which commemorates the story about the prophet Abraham when he was asked to sacrifice his son. The story that is written in the Bible as well as in the Quran.
One last thing, believe it or not Muslims believe in Jesus and the Virgin Mary. There is a whole chapter in the Quran under the title of sourat Maryam (Maryam is the Aramaic and Arabic word of Mary) and it tells the story of “sitna Maryam” (our lady Maryam) that’s how Muslims call her how she got pregnant without being touched by a man and how she was mistreated by people… How she gave birth in Jerusalem, how “Yeshua or Issa alayh el salam” (Jesus peace on him) talked to people when he was an infant and all the miracles he did... We even name our kids Maryam and Issa up till nowadays. We also believe that Jesus will come back to live 40 years on earth before the Day of Judgment.
Well of course there are some differences in some believes between the Christians and Muslims but this is not our subject here.
N.B It is well known that Christianity is the religion of love and forgiveness. That’s what was Jesus known for. People need to open their hearts and minds, accept others, and respect them.

That's OK.

I'll just cut it up with some pork loin and make a nice stew.

I agree with you that there is but one true God, but the fake “god” described in the fake religion created by Mohamed to get women, conquer people, and get rich is not The God — the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob, THE God called HaShem by the Jews, whose Son is Yeshua the Christ.

“One last thing, believe it or not Muslims believe in Jesus and the Virgin Mary.”

Sure, demons in Hell “believe” in Jesus and the Virgin Mary.

Islam denies the Crucifixion and His Resurrection, which is the core of Christianity.

Without Crucifixion and Resurrection, you have nothing. You seem like a nice guy. Many, many Muslims are nice guys. But your religion is false. Allah is not God and Mohamed was not a prophet.

Thank you for the confirmation of the lamb being Halal (humanely slaughtered). I appreciate the detailed description of the process. It’s reassuring! I will be sharing this great news with my family and friends!
