HALAL - WHAT IS IT?

The word, ‘Halal’ in Arabic translates to ‘permissible’ in English. It refers to what is permissible or lawful in traditional Islamic law and is frequently used in reference to food and drinks. ‘Haram’, the opposite of Halal means ‘forbidden’ or ‘not permitted’. Individuals of Muslim faith consume only foods that are considered Halal while avoiding all Haram foods. Preparation of Halal food is also important and must be done safely and not harmfully. Preparation and processing equipment must not be contaminated with things that are unclean.

 CERTIFICATION
