The basic principle is that all things created by God are permitted, with a few exceptions that are specifically prohibited.To make lawful and unlawful is the right of God alone. No human being, no matter how pious or powerful, may take this into his hands. Falsely, representing unlawful as lawful is prohibited. It is unlawful to legalize God's prohibitions by excuses.Prohibiting what is permitted by God and permitting what is prohibited by God is similar to ascribing partners with God.
Kenya Bureau of Halal Certification (KBHC) is a Not-for Profit making entity whose aim is to ensure that all products comply with maximum hygienic and humanitarian standards required by Islamic dietary laws. KBHC monitors these products at every point, from the source to the consumer.
This is done by means of thorough inspection and continuous checks by KBHC trained inspectors , thereby eliminating doubts and granting the general public full confidence and assurance when choosing to buy ‘Halal' products.
Consuming Halal is an order from God (Allah SWT) therefore it is important for a consumer to have full confidence that the product he/she intends to buy is ‘Halal' (permissible), ‘Tayyib' (pure) and does not contain anything doubtful. KBHC was born and operates essentially out of one concern only: to be able to provide assurance that what we are consuming is HALAL.
A Halal label on its own is no longer enough to guarantee the Halal status of a product or an eating outlet. Unscrupulous individuals use the label only for their own business gain
Do not be deceived; some outlets or restaurants will even employ a Muslim and put them on the front line but in the real sense, they source their products from non-halal suppliers.
