The Arabic word
(Halal) means lawful. In the Holy Quran,Allah commands
Muslims and all of mankind to eat of the Halal things. Among
the many verses of the Quran that convey this message, here
are a few:
mankind! Eat of that which is lawful and wholesome
in the earth, and follow not the footsteps of the devil.
Lo! he is an open enemy for you.
ye who believe! Eat of the good things wherewith
We have provided you, and render thanks to Allah
if it is (indeed) He Whom ye worship. (2:172)
of that which Allah hath bestowed on you as food
lawful and good, and keep your duty to Allah in Whom
ye are believers. (5:88)
