IS “halal” a misinterpreted concept even in Muslim-majority countries? Do we understand Islam fully? Do we make an attempt to understand the philosophical tenets of Islam?
Over the years, Islamic education has slowly turned apocryphal. (I am talking about how things have been interpreted over the years.) Islam can be misconstrued as being extremely procedure-driven and ritualistic. People follow these procedures and rituals but don’t actually comprehend fully why they do it. They need to understand the significance of doing something, but unfortunately there is a missing link. The concept of halal is a good example of this.
