There are so many reasons why we need to opt out of the current abusive factory farming system. We really need to know where our food comes from because we are what we eat! The same goes for the animals we eat. We should not only be concerned about what we eat, but what our food eats as well. Whether it’s grass-fed beef or organic pasture-raised chicken, you deserve to feel good about the meat you’re buying. Allah (SWT) commands us to eat food that is Halal (lawful) and Tayyib (wholesome, pure, and good) for us!
How Important Is It That We Focus On Tayyib Meat?
While Halal ensures the animal is slaughtered in the correct way and is permissible for us to eat, Tayyib ensures the food we eat is healthy, nutritious and good for us. It is important to know that the animals we consume are healthy, free of disease, hormones, antibiotics, and chemicals at the time of slaughter. In fact, even during slaughter, we; as Muslims; are not allowed to inflict unnecessary pain on the animal and the animal should be slaughtered away from the sight and hearing of the other animals.
Eating Tayyib is just as important and deeply rooted in our Islamic principles as Halal. First of all, eating Tyayib food is an act of worship "Ebadah" for which we will be rewarded by Allah SWT for submitting to his commandment. It is part of doing GOOD "Maarouf" because we are choosing to contribute to a food production system that Allah SWT will be pleased with because that what He intended for his creations and us. The food we feed our families should not be a mystery; we deserve the best in both flavor and health! We do not have to compromise between Halal and Tayyib. We can have both! Alhamdulillah, there is an alternative to the current abusive system model, and this is exactly what we are trying to do here Halal-N-Tayyib Meats Shares. We are dedicated to providing our community with the highest standards of Halal healthy meat that is not just good for us, but for the animals, the farmer, and the earth.
So what is Tayyib?
"And eat of the things which Allah has provided for you, lawful (Halal) and good (Tayyib), and fear Allah in Whom you believe." (Qur'an 5:88)
"It is part of Islam to eat fresh, home- grown, clean food. Food which is Tayyib. (Wholesome, pure, clean, nutritious)" - Halal Animal Welfare Association
"Consumers have been led to believe that meat is meat is meat. In other words, no matter what an animal is fed, the nutritional value of its products remains the same. This is not true. An animal’s diet can have a profound influence on the nutrient content of its products." - Why grass-fed Is Best! Author: Jo Johnson
Tayyib is specifically mentioned ALONGSIDE Halal in the Quran and Hadith. Organic and grass-fed regenerative farming is the closest modern-day farming method to Tayyib. It does not relate only to the slaughter process or if the animal has enough space to move around. Tayyib is tied right back to a person’s Deen. The treatment of the animal and its rearing, its health and welfare, the rights of the animal over a human in Islam as well as how it is slaughtered. We believe pasture-raised is absolutely, without a doubt, is Tayyib and it is better for the animals, better for the environment, better for your health — which is better for you!

At Halal-N-Tayyib, we believe in eating less meat – and eating true Halal high-quality, pasture-raised meat– because it is is better for the earth, animal welfare, farmers, and us.We believe eating tayyib food is a religious obligation. It is tied right back to a person’s Deen. The treatment of the animal and its rearing, its health and welfare, and the rights of the animal over a human in Islam as well as how it is slaughtered are all equally important. There’s a lot of emphasis placed on eating Halal but there is far less emphasis on whether meat is tayyib, which is just as important and deeply rooted in Islamic principles. Halal and Tayyib is not a new concept. It has always been the core principle of Halal, in which Halal and Tayyib appeared at least four times in the Quraan for example in Surah al Baqarah verse 168.
"O mankind, eat from whatever is on earth [that is] lawful (Halal) and good (Tayyib) and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy." [Surat Al-Baqarah Aya 168]

We would love the opportunity to become your farmer and bring this Tayyib meat to your kitchen.

We offer an ethical and healthy alternative to factory farming, sustainable agriculture that is better for animals, better for farmers, better for land, and better for us. Tayyib for us encompasses all that which is good and wholesome including organic, grass-fed regenerative farming practices, and so much more!
"Whoever is kind to the creatures of God, is kind to himself."- The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), narrated by Abdallah bin Amru in Bukhari and Muslim collections
Our animals are raised humanely by living their natural life in the natural habitat Allah SWT meant for them to be in. They are given time to mature naturally without the use of growth hormones, or genetically modifying their traits to grow faster, without the use of steroids and antibiotics in the duration of their life.
Our animals have access to wholesome food that is not harmful. Genetically modified grains such as corn and soy are very harmful to animals, humans, and earth. The feed for our chickens is strictly organic vegetarian, and for lambs, goats, steers, is grass-fed and pasture-raised.
Our animals spend their entire life on the farm. We do not buy animals from the auction.
