|Halal Definition||Halal is an Arabic word meaning lawful. It refers to things or actions permitted by Shariah law without punishment imposed on the doer. It is usually used to describe something that a Muslim is permitted to engage in, e.g. eat, drink or use. The opposite of halal is haram, which is Arabic for unlawful or prohibited.|

The Halal food Authority rules for halal are based on Islamic Shari'ah. Opposite to halal is haram, which means unlawful or forbidden.

Opposite to it is haram, which means forbidden or not allowed. Arabic is the language of Qur`an, a scripture revealed to the Holy Prophet of Islam by the Almighty Allah to be followed in its entirety by the Muslims. Read more here
| Why I make a special post on Halal definition? I have received two questions:|
."...But i want to know, this cupcakes 'halal' for muslim or not? who made the cupcakes? is a muslim or not?"
Simple answer: Whether this cupcakes are halal or not, I don't know. If I am halal or not, also I don't know..(lol)
I need to make a post/clarification here so that I won't be asked this question again and again.
Elaborated answer: I spent some time researching what the word HALAL means. I found out that it's more on the food and some informations I gathered said that the act ( drinking alcohol) of somebody is also means halal or non halal. I can't find any information where Halal is meant to describe a person's religion or being. Can somebody being Halal? If I am not a muslim, am I not Halal? I am confused...
1. Just to clarify here that all the cakes ingredients is halal ( Halal to my understanding ) as I used the same ingredient bought from all the baking stuff shops in KK. What is not halal about flour, eggs, butter and sugar? Weather they are halal or not ( they are selling them) you have to ask the baking stuff shop... (lol)
Note: Fruit cake I use alcohol (non halal) for but it can be replaced with orange juice if requested.
2. Whether I am halal or not I am not sure but I am a NON MUSLIM. so may be I am not halal eh..
To all muslim who are interested with my cakes and cuppies, thank you very much!!! I appreciate your concern and I respect that but I have to advise here that it's your choice to order or not but if you are sceptical or concern, I won't advise you to order from me. I do have many muslim friends (even my best friend is a muslim) and they all eat my cupcakes and cakes. In fact I make sure I told them I made them (or my sister or brother if they are the one) who baked the cuppies.
I think it's up to you to decide. I saw many muslim bought cakes from bakery and hotels and I am sure some bakers in those bakery and hotels are not all muslim ( non halal) people.
Again.. if you are too concern..I think better don't take the risk..there are so many better cakes shop around KK. But thank you again for your interest.
