Understanding Halal

Halal is an Islamic term which means lawful, permissible or legal. The opposite of Halal is Haram which means unlawful or prohibited.

ln the Holy Quran, Allah has commanded not for only Muslims but for all Man-kind to eat and live on Halal and Tayyib (pure, clean, wholesome, nourishing and pleasing to the taste) things. Among the many verses of the Quran that convey this message, here are a few:

"O you who believe (in the Oneness of Allah)! Eat of the good things that We have provided you, and be grateful to Allah if it is (indeed) He Whom you worship”. Al-Baqarah: 172
“O ye people! Eat of what is on earth, HALAL and Tayyib (lawful and good); and do not follow the footsteps of the Evil One, for he is to you an avowed enemy.” Al-Baqarah: 168

However, consumers and sellers must ensure that all foods, particularly processed foods, pharmaceuticals and non-food items like cosmetics are also Halal. Often these products contain animal by-products or other ingredients that are not permissible under Halal, hence a Halal certification is required A Halal certification from an authorized body helps its customers to identify the brand with products of the highest quality as Halal certification is the only certification which certifies HALAL and Tayyib (HACCP, GMP, GHP etc) in the Whole Chain from Farm to fork.
