ALWAYS SEEK FOR HALAL...

Halal Meaning

Halal is an Arabic word that means “permissible or lawful” in English.

 

The word pertains to what Muslims are allowed do to in their lives, especially when it comes to food and drink.The opposite of Halal is Haram which again is an Arabic word for something that’s forbidden.

 

What constitutes Halal (or Haram) is set out by the Holy Quran and is reflected in the Sharia law which governs the Muslim way of life.

 

Like everything else in the Muslim law, what’s Halal and Haram is also sourced from the Holy Quran, Sharia Laws, as well as the Hadith which is the traditions of the Prophet Muhammad.

 

The term Halal is most commonly associated with the Islamic dietary laws, especially meat. Muslims must be sure about how the meat they are consuming is sourced, processed, and prepared to be edible for them. Besides that, the Islamic jurisprudence clearly specifies which foods are Halal and which are Haram.

 

Quran and Food – the Islamic Dietary Laws

Islamic jurisprudence – based on commandments of the Quran, as well as derivations from Hadith and Sunnah – gives a clear outlook of the food that’s permissible for Muslims to consume. Although the Islamic law has clear directions on the type of meat that Muslims can consume, it is flexible when there’s a lack of alternatives under the ‘law of necessity’. In such situations, the forbidden becomes permissible.

 

Haram or ‘forbidden’ food

The Quran explicitly forbids the consumption of the meat sourced from an otherwise Halal animal that is not slaughtered and dies of itself. Similarly, consumption of pig meat is forbidden in Islam. Consumption of animal blood for food is also outlawed by Islam. Also forbidden is any form of food that’s dedicated to anyone other than God.

 

Here’s a list of the food and drinks Muslims are barred from consuming:

  • Intoxicants: Quran has reproached the consumption of alcohol (intoxicants) on several occasions.
  • Carrion: An animal that dies of itself.
  • Pork: Islam strictly forbids the consumption of pork or products made from it.
  • Blood: Consumption of blood and all its by-products is forbidden in Islam.
  • Donkey, mules and horses.
  • Animals with fangs (cats, dogs, bears, lions, wolves etc.).
  • Birds of prey.
  • Other animals: Monkeys, snakes, scorpions, lizards etc. are also prohibited.

 

NOTE: Ingredients that have been contaminated by or derived from non-halal animal products are also not allowed.

 

Halal or ‘permissible’ food

Here are some of the animals whose consumption is permitted by Islam.

  • Seafood: Consumption of seafood, or game of sea, is permitted by Islam
  • Consumption of all domestic birds, cattle, sheep, goats, camels, buck, rabbits, fish, locusts is permitted by Islam.
  • Kosher foods – that conform to the Jewish dietary regulations of kashrut (dietary law) – are also permitted in Islam.

BUT HALAL ALONE IS NOT ENOUGH !

This verse implies that humanity is expected to eat, use and act in accordance with what is not only permissible (halal) but also good, pure or wholesome.

 

The verse expresses the godly commandment using two important words, namely “halal” and “toyyib”.

 

From this verse, Allah SWT command us to eat, use, and utilise products not only Halal from the fiqh side, but also hygienic, safe, and high quality.

It is common in the halal market for people to use the terms halal and halalan-toyyiban interchangeably due to a perception that whatever is halal, is also halalan-toyyiban.

 

But actually, the two terms carry two different meanings. The former implies compliance with fundamental Syariah parameters, while the latter goes beyond those fundamentals to invoke enhanced features that make something good, pure and wholesome.

WHEN CHOOSING HALAL, A MUSLIM SHOULD GO BEYOND LOGO & CERTIFICATION

You Are What You Eat !

Narrated by Al-Bukhari in Sahih from Ibn Abbas r.a that the Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. had said

 

“Two forms of enjoyment which often neglected most of mankind namely health and spaciousness (time)”.

 

Islam wants it followers to constantly take good care of their body, health & mind. And not simply eats or do anything that will be detrimental to ones health. 

 

Therefore  BE WARY,  from where you source out your shrimp paste . 

 

Too many shrimp paste brands out there that we are doubting on their hygiene especially the ones that are been sold internationally.

 

Always get your food supplies from Muslim suppliers whom understand the concept of “halalan-toyyiban”.

What Is Shrimp Paste?

Shrimp paste (or commonly known as Belachan in Malaysia) is a fermented condiment commonly used in Southeast Asian and Southern Chinese cuisines. It is primarily made from finely crushed shrimp or krill mixed with salt, and then fermented for several weeks. They are either sold in their wet form or are sun-dried and either cut into rectangular blocks or sold in bulk. It is an essential ingredient in many curries, sauces and sambal (chilli paste sauce). Shrimp paste can be found in many meals in Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. -WIKIPEDIA-
