Muslims can eat hallal food, food that is first offered to God, Allah.
In Islam, Halal is an Arabic term meaning "lawful or permissible" and not only encompasses food and drink, but all matters of daily life. When it comes to halal food, most people think of meat products only. However, Muslims must ensure that all foods, particularly processed foods, pharmaceuticals and non food items like cosmetics are also halal. Often these products contain animal by-products or other ingredients that are not permissible for Muslim consumption.
