In the days since the coronavirus crisis hit, there has been a surge in demand for halal meat, including chicken, pork and fish.
What exactly is halal?
Halal food is considered halal by Muslims, but not by Jews.
It is permissible to eat it in some countries, but Muslims do not eat it at home.
The word halal is used to describe foods which are produced from animals that are free from infectious diseases, but which have not been affected by them.
It also refers to foods which have been prepared according to the laws of their country of origin.
The majority of Muslims in the Middle East and North Africa region are followers of the religion of Islam.
It has been growing in popularity since the pandemic, with more than 200 million Muslims in 55 countries signing up to the Shariat (Islamic law) as of the end of January.
The number of Muslims worldwide has been increasing every year since the late 1980s.
According to the Pew Research Centre, Islam is the world’s third-largest religion after Christianity and Buddhism.
The Middle East is home to more Muslims than any other region in the world, but the region has experienced a steady decline in recent years.
The Pew study also found that about a third of the Middle Eastern countries surveyed, including Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine and the Gaza Strip, have halal kitchens.
Some of the most popular halal products in the region are chicken and pork.
It can be hard to find halal in countries where Jews are the majority, but there are alternatives in many countries.
Here is a look at the best places to eat halal meats and fish in the Gulf region.
Al Jadida Restaurant in Abu Dhabi is one of the few halal restaurants in the UAE.
It serves food that is both vegetarian and halal, and its owner says it was not a coincidence that it was named after the famous Arab ruler.
It’s not the only halal restaurant in the area.
In the city of Al Ahliya, the Halal Food Restaurant in the city’s Al Jidha district is a popular place to enjoy the taste of halal meals.
The owner says he was inspired by the popular restaurants in Abu Musa, a nearby area, as he was trying to find a place for his family.
Al Ahmad and Al Azimah Halal Restaurant in Al Awamiya is one such restaurant.
Owner Abdul Hamid says his restaurant serves halal foods that are both vegetarian, as well as halal.
He says he uses halal ingredients when he cooks and serves his meals to avoid any food that could be contaminated.
In addition to his business, Abdul Hamidi has a small business catering to local consumers.
Abdul Hamidis halal and kosher halal cooking services are offered in various areas, including the cities of Dubai and Sharjah.
He is also involved in helping other Muslims find halala restaurants.
“Halal cooking is the only way we can survive in the globalised economy.
It gives us the flexibility to be able to make halal [vegetarian] and halala dishes.
It helps us keep our traditions and our traditions are also very important,” he said.
Al Bahri Restaurant in Ras Al Khaimah is also a halal eatery, and the owners believe the popularity of the halal cuisine in the country is partly because of the support the government provides to the halala industry.
“There is a lot of support in the public and government, so the halals are doing well in Ras al Khaimrah,” said owner Khairul Al Bahari.
The halal market in the United Arab Emirates has grown in recent months, and Al Bahridi said he has been working hard to make sure the market is a success.
“The halal scene is growing every day, and we are seeing a lot more people coming to the market.
We are doing our best to provide a halala-friendly atmosphere,” he added.
In neighbouring Bahrain, Al Bahrir Restaurant in Sheikh Zayed Road has been serving halal dishes for a long time.
Owner Mohammed Al Bahrabi said he started his business in 2014, and he has expanded the operation since.
Al Sabah Halals in Abu Hamadah, in the south of the country, has been catering to the community for a number of years.
“We have served food to our customers in this region since 2004,” said chef Mohamed Al Sabi.
Al Alami Halal and Al Nahda Halal in Ras Zayed was also established in 2016.
Al Nahdah Halala and Al Alam Halal restaurants are both popular in the capital, but both have halala menus.
“When we opened the restaurant, we did not know that the market was so popular.
We have been growing and expanding the business since,” said manager Ahmed Al Alammari.
“Today, we have more than 50 restaurants in this market,” he continued.
