The word "halal" is an Arabic term, originates from rules set out in the holy Qura'n and Hadith which have been believed and practiced by Muslims all across the world. This is not confined to mere food but meaning "permissible'' can refer to any aspects of life from dress to walk and from transactions to marketing etc. Modern food processing system and globalised marketing harden for the Muslim Ummah not just India but all across the world to know if their food was halal and whether it has come from the halal premises. To get around this uncertainty, consumers who care for halal food, require a system that assures the products meets terms of being permissible in Islam. For this, halal certificate is a kind of food certification and audit system. Halal certificate is nothing but to make an informed decision about the food one eats.
Besides the Muslim world, Halal certificate system has attracted the Non Muslims communities also, for it not only provides guarantee of being permissible for Muslims but rather it gives assurance about products being healthy, hygiene and nutritious for the consumers. Because Halal certificate by a competent authority assures that certified products do not contain any part of an animal that a Muslim is prohibited by Shariah to consume or that has not been slaughtered in accordance with shariah, and do not consist of anything which is considered to be impure according to shariah plus+ has not been processed or manufactured by instrument that was mixed with anything impure and has not in the course of preparation, processing or storage been in contact with or close proximity to any food considered to be impure according to Sharia.
It is also a fact that despite having these qualities, under the garb of many allegations, some hardliners in European world, are targeting hubs and cafes which seek halal certificate. We noted a few cases in Australia. These forces are handful in number and do not represent any community. In comparison to them, halal products trade nearly USD $600 billion per annum.
Due to attraction of internal markets in terms of halal foods especially in the Middle East Countries, exporters and importers have to certify their product by pasting halal certificate on their products. They seek halal certificates from Islamic organizations. But authentic Islamic institutions have their own impacts. There are several Islamic organizations which provide certificates in India, but Jamiat Ulama-i- Hind Halal Trust is best to approach. It is because having close vicinity with circles of great Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband and Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind its popularity and fame has worldwide impact. It also has bench of renowned food technologists, jurisprudents and auditors.
