Jakim certifies rain as halal
SHAH ALAM: At a press conference today the Health Ministry and Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) officially gave rain halal certification.
“After we approved Lumin halal spring water, testing water falling from the sky seemed a logical next step,”said a Jakim spokesman, “In a world first, our halal meteorological experts flew in private jets carefully checking nimbus cloud formations for traces of porcine. We can now confirm pigs indeed do not fly!”
The government agreed last month to pay Jakim the RM50Million halal certification fee on behalf of rain on the mutual understanding Malaysian rain must be retested every two years to keep its halal status.
