How does Muslim from Malaysia obey to Halal rules?

Hello. I am Shakir from Malaysia.

In general, Islam is known as one of the most prominent religion in the world in particular its population. Like others, we, Muslim, are limited to our certain behaviour


. One of the most significant rules is an eating habit. We cannot eat anything but Halal food. Then, you may come up with the question: what is a halal food?



Halal is the allowed rules in Islamic regulation, and shows what Muslim can eat in accordance with Islamic regulation. Not only pork but also processed and prepared foods and drink are required to certain degree of Islamic regulation. As you know, one of them is alcohol. In addition, we have to confirm ingredients made of food. In Malaysia, food are labeled as Halal food, whereas in Japan there are very fewer. That’s the most serious problem for Muslim in particular Muslim who cannot read Japanese.


However, the information relating Halal food is easily acquired due to the informational technology as long as you can search on the Internet. Indeed, it is easy to find out some Halal restaurants and shops in Tokyo, Shinjuku, and Akihabara. Furthermore, the facebook’s fan page of Halal Japan exists, which enables Muslim to distinguish from Halal food. Thus, if Muslim would like to cook by themselves, they can order Halal ingredients on the Internet. In conclusion, it can enable Muslim to enjoy life in Japan without any concern about Halal.
