What is permitted in the Islamic law (Sharia Law) is called Halal. It applies to everything
from food to everyday lives. Halal certification can be applied to various categories such
as food, beverages, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, cosmetics and even packaging.
Muslims are to obey the teachings of God (Allah), so eating something that is not Halal it would result in not obeying God (Allah), which means that you are committing a sin. Halal is very important for better life style and it is the root of Muslims (followers of Islam).
