Hello I’m Aya in charge of PR case correspondent. I would like to introduce to Halal Food guide book in Japan this time.
What kind of problems will come along for Muslim people when they stay in Japan? This trouble is about HALAL FOOD. Unfortunately, most of Japanese haven’t had much knowledge about halal food yet. However, in the last few years the situation has been changing step by step. This change will reduce the troubles of Muslim people when they visit to Japan. Thus, it makes travels to Japan more comfortable for them.
・What is the Halal food?
The Halal food Authority rules for halal are based on Islamic Shari’ah. The antonym to halal is haram, which means unlawful or forbidden.
– Abbreviated sentence –
Now to make meat halal or permissible, an animal or poultry has to be slaughtered in a ritual way known as Zibah or Zabihah.
From DEFINITION OF HALAL（http://halalfoodauthority.com/faqs/definition-of-halal）
In this manner, Halal food is very important discipline for Muslims.
There is good news that will help the Muslim who had trouble with things related to Halal so far. That is “Muslim Omotenashi guidebook”!
Omotenashi is “hospitality” coming from Japanese. This guidebook is packed with the hearts of Japanese hospitality. When Muslims visit to Chiba, you can solve the problems of concerning Halal by carrying this map and traveling.
