What is halal?

Halal means Lawful
According to Islam, the meaning of Arabic term “Halal” is lawful, legal, allowed or permissible under the Shariah (Islamic Law). All food items are permissible unless specifically prohibited by the sources of Islamic Shariah Law, the Qur’an and the Sunnah (Tradition) of the Prophet Muhammad SAW. Certain food items are specifically mentioned as being halal. These include unprocessed vegetables, fruits, grains, and fish.

Provided an animal is not specifically prohibited by Islamic Shariah Law, the animal and its by-products must be made permissible for consumption under Islamic Shariah Law by being slaughtered according to the prescribed procedure. This process is called Islamic Slaughtering or Zabiha.

How can non-meat products be “Halal?”
Some people think that Halal is only about meat or chicken products, but many other products contain meat or chicken by-products. Even though we may think of these products as non-meat, the ingredients they contain and the processes used to produce them may affect Halal integrity.
