FAQs

  • What is Halal?
    • Halal is the Arabic term for permissible. In Islamic terms, it means permissible according to the rules of Islam. It is most frequently referred to in regards to food, but it includes any type of action permissible in Islam.
  • What is Haram/non-Halal?
    • This refers to anything considered unlawful under Islamic teachings. It is often used in conjunction with Halal, often in regards to food, but can also refer to other unlawful acts in Islam such as stealing, corruption etc.
  • What is Tayyib?
    • The literal translation is good/clean/wholesome. It is commonly used by Muslims to refer to food, but often that of a higher quality or purity, such as organic or even simply healthy food. Thus, food can be Halal (made of permissible ingredients) but not Tayyib.
  • What is Halal food?
    • Food that is permissible to eat according to the teachings of Islam. This is essentially any food that does not fall into the category of Haram (or forbidden). Although some specific teachings vary, the consensus is that food/drinks must be free of pork, alcohol/intoxicants, poisons, harmful ingredients or unhygienic elements. Any meat must be slaughtered in accordance with the methods prescribed under Islamic law known as Zabihah.
  • What is the meaning of Zabiha?
    • Zabiha means Islamic method of slaughtering an animal. Muslims consider this to be the most humane and purest way to slaughter an animal for consumption.
  • What is Halal meat?
    • There are minor differences on which animals are considered Halal, but the general consensus is that all seafood is Halal and that herbivorous land animals are Halal provided they have been slaughtered according to Islamic rulings.
  • Who are Halal food certification bodies?
    • There are minor differences on which animals are considered Halal, but the general consensus is that all seafood is Halal and that herbivorous land animals are Halal provided they have been slaughtered according to Islamic rulings.

      Halal certification bodies are generally local bodies performing certifications within a local region/country and are sometimes regulated by government authorities.

  • What does "Halal-certified mean?
    • The products or establishments which have been checked by a recognised official Halal certification body and then had a certificate issued confirming its Halal status.
  • What are Halal certified restaurants?
    • Restaurants that are issued certificates by a Halal certification body that confirms their food as being Halal.
  • What are Halal certified kitchens?
    • A kitchen which is exclusively used for the cooking of Halal foods only. It maintains complete separation of Halal and Haram foods ensuring no cross contamination. Some Halal certification bodies will certify a kitchen within a restaurant independent from the overall restaurant.
  • What is a Halal logo?
    • A logo that is labelled on Halal-certified products by certification authorities to confirm that a product is prepared according to Islamic standards.
  • What is meant by Muslim Food, Muslim Friendly Food or "No Pork No Lard" claims?
    • These terms are used in some cases by restaurants to indicate that the food is suitable for Muslims to consume. There is a lot of ambiguity with these terms. They tend to suggest the food is only "friendly" to Muslims and may not actually be Halal. For Muslims the food is either Halal or not. Removing pork but presenting lamb which is not Zabihah, is not considered Halal.
  • How does HalalTrip add Restaurants to the directory?
    • The restaurants are either added by the users of the website/HalalTrip mobile app or HalalTrip staff. When restaurants are added by users, HalalTrip staff makes every effort to very the Halal status of the restaurant.
