What is Halaal?
Halal is an Arabic word which means lawful or permissible. In the specific context of consumables it refers to food that is lawful for consumption. The opposite of Halal (lawful) is Haram which refers to unlawful items.
Muslims are permitted to eat the flesh of certain animals, which are required to be slaughtered according to the specified procedures. Pork is totally not permitted. Similarly, any animal not slaughtered in a specific procedure will also be categorised as Haram (unlawful). Halal also encompasses all aspects of food hygiene and quality. [To be Updated…]
