Let it be a birthday, wedding, reception or any other private or corporate party, the menu should be carefully selected  in order to give your guests a wonderful dining experience. If  most of your guests are Muslims, then Halal  buffet dinner is one of the best options to consider. Halal foods are  served  and prepared as per the Islamic dietary guidelines. If the food items are not prepared as per the Islamic guideline, Muslims call it as Haram.

Let’s see some of the food items that are considered as Haram according to the Islamic dietary guidelines.


Pork or pork  by products are not allowed to consume as per the Islamic dietary guidelines.  So, try to avoid pork or  pork by products in your menu, if the guests you invite are Muslims.
