The Halal Choice! logo indicates that this product does not contain any images of living beings, as these are prohibited in Islaam to bring into one’s home, except by unavoidable necessity. The evidence of this is found in the authentic narrations of the Messenger of Allaah, may Allaah’s praise and salutations be upon him, such as that narrated by Abu Talhah, may Allaah be pleased with him, in Saheeh Al-Bukhaaree, {The Angels do not enter a house where there are images.}

In discussing this hadeeth which is also found in Saheeh Muslim, Imaam Nawawee, may Allaah have mercy upon him stated,

“The scholars have stated that the reason for the angels not entering a house with has images (of living beings), is that this is from open disobedience to Allaah, and because the creation of that image is an attempt to imitate the creation of Allaah, the Most High, and that additionally sometimes those images are worshipped instead of Allaah, the Most High….

…As for which type of angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog or such images, then these are those angels that travel about bringing Allaah’s mercy, blessings, and forgiveness. But as for the angels that record all deeds and actions then they enter every house, and do not make any exception among the sons of Adam in any circumstance they are in, as these angels have been ordered with taking note of the deeds of people and recording them down.” (Explanation of Saheeh Muslim: vol. 7 , page 319)
