Mumbai: (Maeeshat News) Halal food or products are those which are lawful according to Shariah law, for Muslims to consume. Today, varieties of products and their derivatives are available in the market leaving big question for the Muslims, if these products are Halal and they refrain themselves from consuming it. There is other scenario as well where Muslims are unknowingly consuming Non-Halal products due to lack of knowledge about the product. The Halal nature of direct products could be determined easily but for bi-products or derivatives for example Toothpaste, Soaps, and other Cosmetics it becomes very difficult to determine. In such situation, the role of agencies or institution becomes very important, which can certify the product available in the market is Halal after performing test in the laboratories.
