WHAT IS HALAL?


In Islam, the word “halal” refers to foods that are “permissible” or “allowed” for Muslim consumption, following Islamic dietary laws. The word “haram” is its antonym meaning that it does not fall in accordance with Islamic law. Halal is important to Muslims because it is a divine dictate in the Holy Quran.  

Consumption of the following animals is considered permissible:
