This chapter is divided into three main sections. It first discusses the relationship between halal and Shariah law in general, followed by an account of how halal rules and regulations affect the commercial aspect of hospitality requirements. Differences in perspectives among different Islamic traditions as well as a number of specific issues in relation to halal hospitality practices are also examined. A final section then highlights the understanding of the halal concept in terms of its commodification and certification in different jurisdictions and the action taken to overcome some of the difficulties with codifying halal hospitality and tourism.
