The concept of halal, — meaning permissible in Arabic — has traditionally applied to food.

Muslims should only eat meat from livestock slaughtered by a sharp knife from their necks. The name of Allah, the Arabic word for God, must be mentioned.

Blackburn now has more halal eateries than any other town or city in the North West. It comes only second to Manchester for the range of restaurants and dessert parlors on offer.

The halal festival in Blackburn is not the only one around the world.

The London Halal Food Festival (LHFF) usually takes place in September every year, attracting thousands of foodies.
