Halal is an Arabic word which means permissible or lawful. In the Holy Quran, God commands Muslims and all of mankind to eat of the Halal things - "O mankind! Eat of that which is lawful and wholesome, and follow not the footsteps of the devil.  Lo! he is an avowed enemy of you." (2:168)

Halal Cosmetics & Medicines
   
 
The concept of halal is not confined to food only but is relevant in every aspect of man's life. The importance of this relevance cannot be overstated. Two emerging areas where halal has made progress are cosmetics and medicine.
Halal Cosmetics
Halal Medicines
 
Halal Cosmetics

The Quran is unambiguous in its support for beauty and elegance. A person gets more respect and attention from others when the person is clean and tidy. This entails not only the person's clothings but also the application of substances to various part of the body. So, apart from wearing acceptable clothes, the adornment used must also be halal.

Muslims all over the world are almost totally dependent on cosmetics products made by non-Muslims. Muslims seem to have taken the back seat when it comes to the cosmetics industry which is dominated and to a certain degree monopolised by non-Muslims. Thus, the issue of halal ingredients in cosmetics products poses serious challenges.
 

The growing consumer awareness and hence demand for halal products, not just halal food and drink, has provoke existing and new players in the cosmetics industry to make halal products.
 
Halal Medicines

Medicines, like cosmetics, are mostly manufactured in non-Muslim country. Similar issues regarding the ingredients, the manufacturing process and the place where they are manufactured poses complex challenges.

While the general principle that in the case of a life-threatening emergency, one is allowed to consume prohibited (haram) products, it does not absolve Muslims from their religious and ethical duties to develop a totally halal pharmaceutical industry. Muslims should not be complacent and perpetuate their dependance on non-Muslim sources.
 

It is virtually impossible to control the procedures, the laboratory or the non-Muslim people involved in the making of the medicinal drugs even if the substance used are not prohibited. So it is difficult, if not impossible, to label such drugs halal and therefore there is a sense of urgency for Muslims to produce halal medicines.
