Comments Off on International Conference on Halal-Thoyyib Industry and Research


The International Conference on Halal-Thoyib Industry and Research brings together Ulama (Islamic scholars and clerics), engineers, scientists, students, and professionals, in order to address and discuss emerging halal issues. The conference is supported by the inter-disciplinary science and is expected to become an international Islamic scientific movement focusing on innovative halal issues.

Halal assurance is one of the important needs for Muslim as they are obliged to verify that all products that they will use are permissible under Islamic law. The urgency has escalated since many daily products are now produced through complex process that may involve by-products or other aspects which are not permissible from Islamic law view point; thus bring Muslim consumers to doubt the products. On the other hand, this globally broad market for Muslim is intriguing with multinational and independent entrepreneurs are scrambling to secure the USD 5 trillion markets (as estimated by the global consulting group AT Kearney).

In recent year, the consumer products covered by Halal issue have expanded: spanning from food, drug, finance, fashion, cosmetics and other pharmaceuticals products. In addition, halal requires even a broaden meaning which also cover the scientific field. Muslim scholars are obliged to made efforts to expand the interpretation of halal meaning, and to transform the perspective of halal to become more useful and graceful for human life universally. The deep interpretation of Halal should not be limited to permissible but also cover all good things under Islamic law which includes product and process that are safe for human health and friendly to environment as well. Islamic law of halal assurance will give positive impact to global issue of human life and prosperity.
