Practicing Muslims worldwide navigate almost all aspects of their daily lives between the boundaries of "halal" (Arabic for allowed) and "haram" (Arabic for forbidden). The classification of what is halal or haram is based on the Islamic teaching of the Quran and Shariah law. While certain rules are quite clear (like the prohibition of consuming pork or alcohol), other rules are open for debate and personal interpretations (such as the appropriate dress code). Practicing Muslims consider living a ‘halal’ conforming lifestyle as crucial as fasting during Ramadan or performing the Annual Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca.
