The Importance of Religious Norms in Nutrition among Muslims

The imperative of nutrition is a fundamental issue in Islamic law. As people know it, each nation has its own dietary habits. These were born either from years of cultural principles or from several decades of religious leadership.

Just as it is important for Muslims to carry out their obligatory prayers and fasting, to make the pilgrimage and to pay the compulsory levy, so all these practices presuppose that one feeds on religiously permitted food, even known as ‘halal’.

In Arabic, ‘halal’ denotes the ‘allowed’, the ‘allowed’. In the context of food bids, these are foods that are in line with Islamic norms and are therefore in line with them.

If you want to eat halal in Germany and around the world, you have to know your way around. This is because the information on packaging is often not sufficiently displayed to know that a particular food is halal or not.
