This book explains the basic principle of halal and haram and discusses, particularly in relation to the meat idustry, key issues surrounding their implementation. In doing so, the author gives important insight into, and relevant understanding of, many of the misconceptions and challenges confronting Muslims today. The issue of additives for instance has caused considerable confusion in food consumption. Not suprisingly, perceptions of what constitute halal also vary among the schools and scholars of Islam. Other factors such as custom and climate also tend to be influential. In addition the work at hand examines issues in halal and certification procedure, and matters of concern to uniformity in halal industry practices.

Part 1: Understanding the Parameters of Halal and Haram

The Halal industry is still in its early stage of development, and efforts to chart the way foward in compliance with Islamic principles are desirable and necessary. As with Islamic banking in the early years, this industry has also been largely driven by market demands and realities. It would be advisable to enrich the achievements of the Halal indusry with research efforts that advance a better understanding of Islamic principles and the scientific knowledge relevant to our concerns.

Part One begins with a review of evidence in the Qur'an and hadith on the Halal or mubah, and then proceed to address the Haram.............. Download the full article in pdf attachment (below)

 Muslim jurists have discussed the source evidence and formulated guidelines to regulate the application of the value indicators to dietary substances based on Islamic principles. Let's recall Part 1 of this series, where we saw that Halal and Haram are not black-and-white-categories. Part 2 therefore discusses the grey area known as Al-Shubhat, or doubtful matters that may occasionally call for fresh juristic enquiry and ijtihad as to their permissibility. Fiqh works provide details for almost every known variety of animals, birds, insects and so on.............. Download the full article in pdf attachment (below)

 Abstract

The halal industry is still in its early stage of development, and efforts to chart the way foward in compliance with islamic principles are desirable and necessary. As with Islamic banking in the early years, this industry has also been largely driven by market demands and realities. It would be advisable to enrich the achivement of the halal industry with research efforts that advance a better understanding of Islamic principles and scientific knowledge relevant to our concerns. This article begins with a review of evidence in the Qur'an and hadith on the halal and mubah, and then proceeds to address the haram. The later part of the article covers the reprehensible (makhruh) and the recommendable (mandub) respectively, as well as fiqh and the relationship between Islam and science.
