I always wondered what the word “Halal” means, it appears at the back of packaging and especially at restaurants.When i researched on the true meaning of “Halal” i was surprised that it meant ‘permissible’ in Arabic where as per Islamic principles, the term Halal takes a specific, well-defined meaning where individuals who choose to adhere to Islamic law are expected to be concerned with the permissibility, or Halal aspect, of any human activity they wish to indulge in. This was indeed news to me as i always believed that Halal was only related to food and the sourcing of meat and was not very conscious of its important in Sri Lanka.
Coming back to my initial question “Is Halal Important?” YES INDEED! It is very important here in Sri Lanka as well, because we are living in a multi ethnic, multi religious country where we respect each other or else we should respect each other. Owing this reason, it is very important to accommodate information and details regarding Halal Certification and Halal Compliance for our Muslim friends.
