What is Halal?

When we go through what is lawful and permitted to humans, we evidently come across the words “Halal” and “Good”. Halal (حَلاَلً , ḥalāl , Halaal) is an Arabic term designating any object or an action which is permissible to use or engage in, according to Islamic law. The term is widely used to designate food seen as permissible according to Islamic law (Sharia).

Interestingly nowhere in quran does it state that it is permissible only for muslims, rather all human-beings are invited to eat food which is halal (permissible, lawful), pure and good for health. That means it is hygienically and toxicologically free from all sorts of hazardous agents, and hence is good and safe for consumption.
