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

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

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

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