Halal food culture in Kuala Terengganu: Shariah perspective (Istitābat al-‘Arab)
Budaya pemakanan halal di Kuala Terengganu: perspektif shariah (Istitābat al-‘Arab)
Keywords:Halalan Tayyiban, Haram, Halal food culture, Istitābat Al-‘Arab, Kuala Terengganu
Different cultures possess particular uniqueness in their culinary styles. Members of a society connect with each other through similar food patterns. People from different cultural backgrounds consume different foods with different culinary styles, including ingredients used, preparation methods, and consumption habits. Variations in food culture are basically due to different situations faced, which vary according to different societies. Religion is perceived to play a part in shaping Kuala Terengganu’s food culture, along with availability of food sources, geographical background, historical background, and migration. Considering that Kuala Terengganu is a predominantly Muslim district, its local food culture is by any means manifested by the prescription of Shariah Law, which is to consume halalan tayyiban and to bypass haram. This study attempts to review the concept of Istitābat Al-‘Arab pertaining to halal food rulings through various references found in different Quranic verses, hadith, and principles. Also in this study, the different interpretations from the major denominations in Islam (i.e., Hanafi, Maliki, Shafie, and Hanbali) regarding the concept of Istitābat Al-‘Arab are discussed. Hence, this particular paper explains the concept of Istitābat Al-‘Arab from a Shariah perspective in shaping Kuala Terengganu’s halal food culture with reference to local food rulings.
