Halal Gifts For Muslims

Updated on June 28, 2014

Wear Your Religion - Dawwa Tools

One word that encapsulates our deen, our religion, is halal. Being Muslim is a life-long journey towards absorbing the notion of halal into our being, into our lives with actions, thoughts, words, deeds - and the items with which we display our faith.

At first introduction to Islam I learned that the term halal applied to food, but in the broader sense it applies to the complete muslim lifestyle. The term means "allowed" or "permitted".

In reference to meat it conveys the information that the animal has been properly raised, organic, and especially that the animal be slaughtered following Islamic guidelines. Prayers to God (Allah) must be said at the time of slaughter and no animal may be exposed to the killing of another animal, so they are kept isolated from the procedure.

(When an animal does witness the death of the animal proceeding them in the line-up adrenaline is released into the bloodstream of the live animal, tainting the meat with a strong taste. This is forbidden in Islam.) This is only an introduction to proper slaughter of animals and the meaning of halal.

A halal lifestyle incorporates the intellect, the soul, the body, the emotions, the actions, the knowledge, and above all, the heart, into an evolving spirit of honesty and gentleness, who embodies the heart of the Qur'anic verse from al-baraqa 2:256: "there is no compulsion in religion".

I choose to be Muslim because my heart longed for the direct communion with the Creator and I found my answers in Islam. Like all, I am a work in progress, conveying the message that we owe it to our Creator to live the best, the most generous and honest lives possible, respecting all persons, and compelling none. We must live as if we are God's gift to the world, in humility. Salam

Dr. Jeffrey Lang's Conversion Perspectives - a remarkable read

Perhaps his story is so poignant because there's no need for translation of how he found himself in unabated conflict with the Qur'an when he first read it. For him it required a stepping over the line of disbelief and into the realm of responsibility and renewal.
