    I was reading about Halal, but as in food but in general too. Then I read somewhere that Halal food and Kosher food is somewhat the same?

    Can those who know about the similarities and differences answer to me?

    This thread is not for discussion about if Halal is right or wrong, or if Islam should stop using it.
    This thread are only meant for answering OP directly.

    After a short read it look very similar and the way the animal is slaughtered look exactly the same.

    Halal= done by a Muslim
    Kors her= done by a Jewish person.

    It's an interesting topic.

    So you ask anonymous forum members having zero verified credentials for a smattering of opinions about which you can render an uninformed determination concerning credibility. Brilliant.

    The link I was given by @Jedster was good enough to answer my question in the OP.
    I personally do not find Wikipedia to hold good quality answers, that said for some people Wikipedia will be good enough.

    Even better would be quotes from Quran or the Torah about the topic of halal vs kosher food. But at the moment my Arabic is a bit rusty, and I do not understand Hebrew language:)

    It makes quite a bit of sense to ask an online religious community you're part of that includes Jewish and Muslim members about dietary guidelines in their faiths.

    FYI
    I posted that link because it fits with my own knowledge on the subject.
    I grew up in an orthodox Jewish environment and know the laws of kashrut. I have also had many discussions with many Muslims on the subject, more when I was religious.

    I found it very interesting to speak with both Muslims and Jewish people :)
    I can admit that the question in this OP did arise more easy because of my Muslim friend here I live. But she does not speak much about her religious faith. So RF is a good place to learn :)

    I don't know about the Jews but the "dietary guidelines" of the Muslims here can vary. The Shias, for one, do not follow the same restrictions others do.

    Well, hopefully, some of those who actually practise their religion will participate here.

    :)

    ETA I see that @Piculet already has

    I have understood that Shia and Sunni do practice a bit differently within Islam yes :)
    Hopefully I can gain info from both sides:)

    Does the different Jewish groups also see the Korsher rules differently?

    That would, indeed, have been a more than reasonable question. Thanks for sharing.

    Yeah, but the extent of the differences vary depending on the community. Some don't keep Kashrut at all, some only keep some of it (for example, not eating dairy products and meat products together). Even within the Orthodox communities there are differences. For example, the Sephardic community requires Chalak food, which means that there cannot be even the slightest puncture in the lungs of the animal post-slaughter. Most Ashkenazi people don't require Chalak, but some (such as my family) do.
