What are Halal and Haram in Islam?

Halal and Haram are two words that are often heard in Muslim communities all over the world. The two words have different meanings, but they are both important in Islam.
Halal refers to anything that is permissible in Islam. This includes things that are allowed to be eaten, used, or worn. Anything that is not Halal is considered to be Haram.
Haram refers to anything that is forbidden in Islam. This includes things that are not allowed to be eaten, used, or worn. It is important to know the difference between Halal and Haram items, because Muslims are not allowed to use anything that is considered to be Haram.
You have to keep in mind in all your affairs that the basic principle is that things are lawful unless proven otherwise by Sharia evidence. You are not required to investigate and ask about the source of things, as this entails hardship, and Islam alleviates hardship; Allah, The Exalted, says (what means): {and He (Allah) has not placed upon you in the religion any difficulty.} [Quran 22:78]

How to differentiating between Halal and Haram items?

When it comes to Halal and Haram items, it can be a little tricky to differentiate at times. After all, not everything is as black and white as we might like it to be.
But there are a few key things to look out for when trying to identify Halal and Haram items in your everyday life. One of the most obvious is alcohol. If an item contains alcohol, then it is automatically Haram. This includes products such as perfumes, colognes, and cleaning products.
Another thing to watch out for is pork. Pork is considered unclean in Islam and is therefore considered Haram. This includes items such as pork-based products like bacon and ham, as well as any food items that contain pork derivatives.

What are common examples of Haram items?

When it comes to Haram items, the list can be quite long. Here are just a few examples that you should look out for: alcoholic beverages, pork and pork by-products, non-Halal meats and animals, blood, gambling items (lottery tickets, casino chips), and certain types of entertainment (music and dancing). Some of these items may be obvious to identify – for example, a bottle of wine is undeniably an alcoholic beverage. But there are some items where it’s not so obvious – for example, processed foods may contain traces of alcohol or animal fat. HalalBiz pays close attention to food labels and researches any ingredient you’re unsure about.
In addition to foods, Haram items can also be found in beauty products like lipstick or nail polish. Many of these products contain animal ingredients or alcohol as an ingredient or as part of the manufacturing process. Stick to Halal certified products instead – these products have been tested by Halal inspectors and have been approved according to Islamic law.

Why Islam forbids certain items to consume?

Consuming Haram items has various harmful effects on our physical, mental and spiritual health. Haram items may contain ingredients that are made with alcohol or pork, which are both considered Haram. Foods that contain animal flesh or byproducts such as gelatine, lard and gelatinous desserts can be considered Haram.

How to choose Halal Products?

First, always check the labels and ingredients of whatever it is you’re buying. If it contains any kind of animal by-product such as gelatin or pork by-products, then it’s considered haram. Many processed foods contain hidden animal products so make sure to read the label carefully.
Second, sometimes confusing ingredient names might mean something else entirely; for example, something like monosodium glutamate may actually be derived from seaweed and not an animal product (halal). So, if you see something unusual on the label, look up what it is before making a halal/haram judgement.
Finally, make sure to always purchase products from reputable suppliers who are certified in offering halal-compliant items. This will help you ensure that what you’re buying has been ethically sourced and prepared according to Islamic guidelines. HalalBiz is one of the reputable suppliers of Halal items.

Is Halal certification reliable?

Certifications can be helpful in identifying Halal items, but it’s important to remember that they’re not always 100% reliable. There are a number of different certifications out there, and not all of them are created equal.
Some certifications are more reputable than others, so it’s important to do your research before you trust anyone certification. And even if a product has a Halal certification, that doesn’t mean it’s automatically Haram. There can be some grey areas, so it’s best to consult with an expert if you’re not sure about a particular item.

Are the Muslims allowed to sit on a table where wine is served?

A Muslim is not allowed to sit at a table where wine is served. Imam Ahmad narrated from ‘Umar
  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him and At-Tirmithi from Jaabir  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him that the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said: “He who believes in Allah and the Last Day should not sit at a table where wine is served.
So, a Muslim is not permitted to eat in a restaurant where alcoholic drinks are sold and consumed, because doing so is a sort of enlarging the number of corrupt people, showing pleasure with what they do, as well as other negative things. Yet, if you are driven by forcing necessity, then you may sit at one of the tables that does not contain wine, or you may choose a time when no such beverage is present in those restaurants.
