International Institute of Islamic Thought, Jan 1, 2013 - Religion - 58 pages
Exploring the question in detail Kamali explains the basic principles of halal and haram and discusses, particularly in relation to the meat industry, key issues surrounding their implementation. In doing so he gives important insights 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 surprisingly, perceptions of what constitutes 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 certification procedures, and matters of concern to uniformity in halal industry practices.
