Almost every single person in the world knows what “Halal food” means. And for those who don’t know, “halal” is an Arabic word that means “permissible” in the English language. There are certain foods that aren’t halal for Muslims because Muslims follow Islamic laws strictly, especially when it comes to their food. This is the reason they follow the halal diet and that’s what we are here to talk about today.
“Haraam” is the opposite of “Halal” and it means “forbidden”. Here’s a list of some of the foods and substances that are forbidden in Islam;
- Animals that are slaughtered in the name of someone except God
- Pig based products and meals
- Amphibians and frogs
When it comes to eating fish, most Muslims say that all kinds of fish are halal but some say that there are certain fish types that are forbidden. Thankfully, most food manufacturers now mention whether a food item is halal or not. So if you are a Muslim travelling to some foreign country then there are two things that you can do. First, you can check the label of the food items you buy from the market. If they say “halal” then buy them otherwise don’t. The second and the best option is to opt for Yolo meal plan. Yolo is a healthy and halal food delivery service that will provide you with customized meals that are extremely healthy and finger-licking good!
