Importance of Halal Lifestyle
Adopting a halal lifestyle is not only important for Muslims, but also for non-Muslims. It implies that the lifestyle we adopt and choose for ourselves is a considered one. It is a lifestyle that we are comfortable with. We do not have any reservations, or guilt-feelings, or being embarrassingly apologetic about it, wherever we go or find ourselves drawn into it. If our choice of lifestyle is one of halal, then it affords us the opportunity to be accepted and respected by everyone else. Halal affords one the subconscious self-awareness of hygiene and health; safety and security; independence and self-determination. It is simply wholesome and awesome!
Thus, our chosen halal lifestyle is an ethical one. It was a choice of lifestyle that was without force, discrimination, bias or prejudice. It would therefore be a chosen-lifestyle that is pleasing to us, conducive and tolerable for all people and for every circumstance, place or venture. In essence, we have contentment-of-heart and an exemplary natural disposition towards others, as well. A halal lifestyle guarantees and manages the morality of whatever we do, say or become involved in. Once we have embraced such a halal lifestyle for ourselves, we would find happiness and contentment, as opposed to perplexity and anxiety in our lives. At the same time, it safeguards and preserves our dignity and honor; our self-respect and self-control; and our integrity and individuality. Maintaining a halal lifestyle offers us nothing else except equilibrium, modesty, sustainability, safety and stability in our lives. In essence, halal is a right of every Muslim, but it is indeed a privilege for every non-Muslim.
