What does Halal mean?


The Arabic term “Halal” translates to “lawful” or “permissible” in English. The opposite of Halal is “Haram” which translates to “unlawful” or “impermissible”. These terms are used in a variety of cases mentioned in the Qur’an including for food consumption, lawful relationships, earnings, charity and generally how one can lead a “Lawful” life. In terms of food consumption, the word Halal is also associated with the term ‘Tayyib’ which means ‘wholesome’ or ‘something that is good for you’.
