The basic guidance about halal food laws is revealed in the Quran from God to Muhammad for all people. The food laws are explained and put into practice through the Sunnah as recorded in the Hadith. Food is considered one of the most important factors for interaction among various ethnic, social, and religious groups. All people are concerned about the food they eat: Muslims want to ensure that their food is halal; Jews that their food is kosher; Hindus, Buddhists, and certain other groups that their food is vegetarian. The haram foods are mainly pork, alcohol, blood, dead animals, and animals slaughtered while reciting a name other than that of God. This may also include halal items that have been contaminated or mixed with haram items. From the discussion on laws and regulations, it is clear that several factors determine the halal or haram status of a particular foodstuff.
