National Halal Certification

Duration: Running from 2019

ISLAM is a divine religion revealed by Almighty Allah to Prophet Muhammed (peace and blessings of Allah be upon Him and His household) through Angel Jibriel. 

Islamic rules are: 'The lawful is clear and the unlawful is clear' (saying of the Prophet Muhammad S.A.W.). No human being can influence its teachings. That which has been made lawful by Allah cannot be made unlawful by any person and vice versa.

HALAL food is that which adheres to Islamic law as defined in the Quran. The Islamic form of slaughtering animals or poultry (dhabiha) involves killing through a cut to the jugular vein, carotid artery and windpipe. 

Handlers of Food and beverages must comply with Islamic laws and values if they want the Muslim community to consume and patronize it.

Halal beverages means the drinks have not been contaminated with alcohol or mixed, prepared with or anything related to pig.
