Halal is an Arabic word that simply means permitted or lawful. So when we are talking about halal foods it means any foods that are allowed to be eaten according to Islamic Sharia law. Muslims are taught through the Qu'ran that all animals should be treated with respect and well cared for.
According to these guidelines gathered from the Qu'ran, Muslim followers cannot consume the following:
- Pork or pork by products
- Meat of an animal that has died of natural causes, or as a result of strangling or beating
- Blood in liquid form
With the growing of Muslim tourists to Vietnam, many Halal restaurants were established in order to show the honor to Islam and offer tourists a little taste of home.
Here are some stunning Halal Restaurants in Hanoi.
