What means Halal?

According to the Islamic rules, Muslims may only consume food, which on one side is “ritual pure” (tahir) and on the other side permissible as aliment. Both aspects together make food permitted (halal) for Muslims. The ingestion of “ritual impure” or “pure” but impermissible is basically forbidden in Islam.

Things which are impure themselves are called “causal impurity” such as urine, excrement, sperm of endotherms, cadaver (including all animals, which have not been slaughtered according to Islamic rites), blood, dog, pig and alcoholic drinks. Besides these “causal impurities” an object can be “impurified”, if it gets in contact with something “impure” in a specific way. An impurified object can be possibly “purified” again. Some objects can be “pure” but its ingestion nevertheless is impermissible, such as drugs.

The question of halal comprises not only food itself but also additives, packaging material up to chemicals in cosmetics and cleaning agents.

Goal of the halal-certification is also to show methods how impurities can be avoided during the production process and unavoidable impurifications purified again, and how impermissible additives can be substituted by permissible ones.
