What is Halal?
Halal is an Islamic law on the foods. This law puts restrictions on consuming specific types of food. The Muslim community considers this law as sacred and follows it religiously throughout their life. Halal law covers both foods and drinks that are matters of daily life. There are five norms in Halal, makruh, mustahabb, fard, and haram. Halal describes the foods that are allowed, makruh for disliked, and haram for forbidden and mustahabb for recommended foods.
Halal gives a list of foods and drinks that are permissible to consume under Islamic law. Also along with reference to allowed foods, it also gives a list of foods that are denied as per Muslim customs. One of the commonly known food that is not allowed by Halal is pork.
