What Does Haram or Halal Mean?

 

“Haram” is derived from the Arabic word “Hurum” which means “impermissible”. Thus “haram” means that the thing under discussion is Islamically impermissible. (For example, pork is haram for consumption.)

Conversely, “halal”, being the opposite of haram, means “permissible”.
