Sunday again, alhamdulillah. We're still alive to work for akhirat! Cheers for that, use the opportunity wisely. Look at those in the grave, they don't have whats we've given today, so be grateful and use our day productively, inshaallah. Well what do you think when you read the title? It sounds fishy and doubtful, isn't it? Sigh, I just don't agree with the term actually, HALAL beer? Err..and it have now been used widely in my country, duh! Ok before anything I would like to give you whats the definition of beer actually, I took it from the net. There's several definitions, I would just highlight 4 definitions which are commonly use:
Definition 1: A fermented liquor made from any malted grain, but commonly from barley malt, with hops or some othersubstance to impart a bitter flavor.
Definition 2: A fermented extract of the roots and other parts of various plants, as spruce, ginger, sassafras, etc.
Defenition 3: A general name for alcoholic beverages made by fermenting a cereal (or mixture of cereals) flavored with hops
Definition 4: A fermented beverage brewed by traditional methods that is then dealcoholized so that the finished product contains no more than 0.5 percent alcohol.Now lets see the definition of Halal:
Halal (Arabic:حلال, alāl, Halaal; means lawful or legal) is a term designating any object or an action which is permissible to use or engage in, according to Islamic law. It is the opposite of haraam.Don't you think its were really contradicted each other? Beer is alcoholic baverage (Which is haram) and Halal is the opposite of Haraam..er, so how they could be combined as one term for one product that they claimed as Halal? Arghhh..Its confusing me.
