Lecture and Book Launch by renowned scholar and specialist in Islamic Law and Jurisprudence, Professor M. Hashim Kamali

The subject of Halal and Haram, notably meat, and meat products, is of central importance to Muslims with growing focus on ethical aspects of meat production, food safety and cleanliness, and the welfare of animals demanding greater attention. But there is more to the Halal industry than simply meat. The issue of Halal touches many areas of Muslim life. Because the industry is driven by the market realities of supply and demand, better understanding of Islamic principles is vital.
