Halal Policy in Brunei


Jul 11, 2022

Consumption of Halal is the commandment of Allah SWT as explained in the Quran and Sunnah, which aims to preserve the Maslahah of the people in accordance with the principles of Maqasid Shariah. Therefore, Allah SWT prohibits certain types of food simply because of the harm it causes to humans physically, mentally, spiritually and morally. In Brunei Darussalam, halal matters control and monitoring are highly emphasized. This can be seen in various contexts, especially in the titah or proclamations of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di Pertuan Negara Brunei Darussalam who repeatedly asserted the control of halal products and goods in this country is guaranteed and Shariah-compliant. In addition, in the context of Negara Brunei Darussalam as an Islamic country and the adoption of the Concept of Malay Islamic Monarchy (MIB) as a national policy also demonstrates the importance of halal in the country. The enforcement of two halal legislation further strengthens the halal control efforts as well as the role of other legislation governing the safety and quality of food.
