What's Halal?
Halal means "lawful" or "permissible" in the world of Islam. The "lawful" here is used in the context to mean, agreeing with the teachings of Islam, and anything that is aligned with the teachings of Islam are represented as halal. Halal food is called as such to mean food that conforms to the teachings and "can be eaten", and food that is prepared in the right way using halal food, are in turn called halal cuisine.
In addition, the eating of pork or drinking of alcohol is prohibited in the world of Islam, but other meat such as chicken or mutton is permissible for eating. However, even then, if the meat is not slaughtered in accordance with the teachings of Islam, they are not allowed to be eaten. Inspections are also conducted for condiments where they are traced all the way back to the raw ingredients used, to ensure that no non-halal ingredients were used.
