    Halal

    Quranic term used to indicate what is lawful or permitted. Most legal opinions assert the presumption that everything is halal (permissible) unless specifically prohibited by a text. Often used in conjunction with established dietary restrictions, halal can refer to the meat of permitted animals that have been ritually slaughtered, hunted game over which the name and praise of God have been pronounced, and fish and marine life. Prohibited categories (haram) include pork, blood, alcoholic beverages, scavenger animals, carrion, and improperly sacrificed permitted animals, although these may be eaten in cases of extreme necessity.
