Why the need for Halaal Certification?

ALLAH SUBAHANAHUWATAALA states in the Holy Quraan surah 2 v 168.  “O people! Eat what is on earth, Lawful and Good.”  Furthermore ALLAH says “Eat of the things which ALLAH has provided for you, Lawful and Good.”  (surah 5 – v 88).  These are direct orders from ALLAH.  The consumption of Halaal Food is a fundamental aspect in any Muslim’s life.  We will try to critically evaluate the concerns and scepticism of the Muslim Consumer today.  After all, the consumption of Halaal or Haraam has a profound effect on a Muslim’s duahs.  Understand, the Muslim consumer is faced with immense difficulty regarding choices in today’s world.  The certification of Halaal products no longer refers to meat or ancillary products only, but to a host of other products covering franchise stores, pharmaceuticals, cosmetic products, ready to eat products, as well as a host of drinks, spices, sauces and condiments.  Lately we have also seen a flood of financial, investment and insurance products with the attachment of Sharia or Halaal compliant tags.
