The Halal Index
The Halal Index initiative is a first of its kind. It breaks new ground in the area of pharmaceuticals by incorporating Islamic values and principles.
Seen as a pioneer and the foundation for which the Halal Standards for pharmaceuticals are based upon, it manages to uphold and maintain steadfast integrity in both its scientific and scripture based use of knowledge and data.
An ethically and religiously conscious set of texts that primarily alludes to the Qur’an & Sunnah, this reference also manages to stay relevant to all fields, industries, religions, professions and lifestyle choices.
The first book in this series, Pig Based Pharmaceuticals, discloses and unravels more than 50 chemical compounds that are derived from porcine (pig, hog, etc.) which possess therapeutic value and hence are active ingredients in countless pharmaceuticals or which are used within the pharmaceutical industry as excipients.
The importance of highlighting and exposing these compounds stems from the realisation that the Ummah (the Islamic community) are unaware of the origin of many of the compounds contained within countless pharmaceuticals on the consumer market, as well as those used within the health care industry worldwide.
