Ḥalāl or hallal is any object or an action which is permissible to use or engage in, according to Islamic law. The term covers and designates not only food and drink but also all matters of daily life. It is one of five الأحكام الخمسة — fard/compulsory, mustahabb/recommended, halal/allowed, makruh/disliked, haram/forbidden — that define the morality of human action in Islam. Mubah is also used to mean "permissible" or "allowed" in Islam. Generally in Islam, every object and action is considered permissible unless there is a prohibition of it in the Islamic scriptures. Clarification is given below in detail as to what is considered to be a permissible object or action in Islam, along with the exceptions.
