Halal is an Arabic word meaning lawful or permitted. The opposite of halal is haram, which means unlawful or prohibited. While the term is used in relation to many aspects of life, when specifically used in relationship to food, halal refers to any food product that is not prohibited. In reference to meat products, halal means that the animal was slaughtered according to Islamic guidelines, which include reciting God’s name over the animal before slaughter, and draining all the blood from the animal. This practice is similar to the guidelines set by Jewish law that classify meat prepared in this manner as ‘Kosher’. It is common to find halal butcher shops or restaurants in most major cities in the UK.
MAB has offered a lot to the British society and continues to do so with endless potential. MAB targets both young and old of the society and enjoins with many press releases (The call for the British government to end the killing in Gaza), events, youth scout camps, protests (Gaza 07/14, Syria & more), conferences (hate – crime conference 04/13 +), quizzes and educates its people about related articles (e.g the stabbing of the Muslim woman in the UK). MAB progressively delivers outstanding opportunities and will continue to expand and educate Muslims in the UK in order to be of the best character which allows us to interact and set a good light of Muslims to the British society insha’Allah.
