Shariah Law: a matter of belief

Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, suggested
earlier this year that integrating some aspects of Shariah law into the
UK legal system might not be a bad idea. The archbishop said we had to face

legal system.
With
an estimated 1.6 million Muslims living and working in the UK and an

Faithful Have New Food for Thought

There is a new mindset for people’s outlook on food that is emerging through their personal beliefs that cannot be overlooked.

It is one of the reason’s that the market for Halal extends to the non-Muslims with the extra assurance of the animal welfare. This does not only apply to America but also the Middle East where manufacturing Halal food  cannot just about what is permitted in their religion but they now also, like the Americans, have to take into consideration the obesity and health issues that are prevalent in their region.
