A food label is stamped halal if the contents of the food conform with Muslim dietary laws. This certification is analogous to a kosher certification, in that it is provided by a certified third party agency, but kosher food is not necessarily halal, and halal food is not always kosher. For Muslims who are concerned about obeying the Sharia, or Islamic law, this label acts as an assurance that the contents of the food are not haram, or forbidden.In Muslim countries, finding halal food is relatively easy, as stores and restaurants are often run by Muslims who obey the Sharia. Outside of Muslim countries, however, adhering to the law can be very difficult, especially with processed foods. Some Muslim organizations have published lists of ingredients that contain pork and those companies that make food that is safe to eat. In Muslim communities within non-Muslim nations, there is often a plethora of restaurants that are certified, and there may also be a halal butcher.
