Brief explanation of the term “Halal”, in Turkish “Helal”

The word “Halal” (حلال) orginated in the Arabic-speaking world and means something like permissible, allowed, legal or legitimate. The opposite “Haram” indicates everything that is forbidden, impermissable, not allowed and illegal.

Worldwide the term “Helal” is used to indicate food and drink that is permissable for Muslims to eat in accordance with Islamic law. Some animals, such as pigs, are considered unclean, while others like dogs, donkeys, etc. are considered unsuitable for consumption. In this context, it is also important that foods do not come into contact with substances considered “Haram” during the preparation, processing, storage or transport phases of production.

The proper method of butchering animals is also extremely important when following “Halal” rules. A practising Muslim must perform the butchering while invoking the name of God. In addition, the animals must be treated respectfully and unnecessary stress or pain on their part avoided. The least painful instruments must be used and knives must be sharpened properly.
