Raising halal awareness in the community

Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali (UNISSA), through the Halalan Thayyiban Research Centre (HTRC), organised Halal Awareness Games recently at Bridex Hall 1, Jerudong in conjunction with the Local Product Expo 2022.

It was facilitated by assistant lecturer Nor Surilawana binti Haji Sulaiman and three Year 1 students of HTRC.

HTRC raised community awareness, especially expo visitors, on halal, syubhah and haram as well as halalan thayyiban and halal non-thayyibat.

A game to identify halal logos recognised by the Brunei Islamic Religious Council was also held.

HTRC Deputy Director Dr Zeiad Amjad Abdulrazzak Aghwan delivered a briefing on ‘Significance of Thayyiban Concept throughout the Halal Meat Supply Chain’.

The centre hopes to hold such a programme in the future to inculcate an informed society.
