Halal Writers Guideline

We would love to hear from you… If you’re passionate about living a halal lifestyle or if you have anything interesting to share your content about a halal lifestyle, here is the right place to start! So what do we mean by content about halal lifestyle?  It can be anything that from the places you visit, a new halal food you discovered, entrepreneurship, leadership, or simply your experience as a Muslim or encounter with Muslims. 

Muslim is one group of people that has a rich and diverse tapestry of cultures and background we think this diversity should be celebrated as long as it is within the fold of Islam.

Here are some general content guidelines to keep in mind when contributing to Halalop.com

Bear in mind that Halalop.com is about promoting halal lifestyle, so anything that is contradictory to this will not be accepted. 

General content guidelines
