What is Halal Certification

This means that food has been subjected to approved certification systems which guarantee to consumers that nothing in the food has any forbidden components. Halal certificates are issued by a competent certifying body.

There are so many foods and other consumable products around us which are needed by a human for daily consumption.  Consumers can not investigate each product as various products needed technical and scientific analysis. Therefore a body is needed who should be equipped with experts from Shariah and technical & scientific proficient who can examine the product from all aspects.   When these bodies satisfied that the product or services are halal according to shariah then they confirm and certify that the product abides halal compliance as per shariah and fit for Muslim consumption. Halal certification by such bodies assure that the specific certified product do not contain any element that is forbidden by Shariah to consume or that is not slaughtered as per shariah, and do not bear anything which is considered to be impure ( Najis) according to shariah and has not been processed or manufactured by tool that used in mixing with any other  haram (forbidden) products and has not in the course of manufacturing, preparation, processing, cooking or storage, transportation, etc., contaminated  with haram food or ingredients.

These products are thus edible, drinkable or usable by Muslims who wish to follow the halal compliance in their foods or consumptions.  Halal Certification from Halal bodies is the Islamic organizations who help to build consumer’s confidence without suspicion and uncertainty over the consumption of the products in restaurants, hotels or in the form of medicines, cosmetics and vitamins. It is a trustworthy and consistent authentication to food manufacturers’ or any other food operator claim that their products have met strict Halal obligation by the Shariah Law.
