Halal Baby Website COMING SOON!

In the Name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful. May The Endless Blessings of Allah Most High be upon Muhammad (Peace be upon him,) his family, companions and followers insha'Allah.

Asalamu'alaykum wa Rahmatullah

"What is HalalBaby?"
The idea for a website dedicated specifically for expecting mothers, and babies to toddlers began when we realized that there really weren't that many halal resources for expecting mommies and their babies living in the West. Each and every time the doctor prescribed a medication, one would wonder "Is this halal?" Each and every time a lotion, cream or oil was picked up, whether it was for the upcoming baby or for the expecting mommy, one would think "Eh, what type of glycerin, plant or animal?" Nerve-wracking, annoying, and downright unfair indeed, but Alhamdulillah this is our test.

The HalalBaby website will be created in order to aid Muslim couples who are expecting a child or already have children in the extensive ongoing search for halal baby products, halal products sisters may need during their pregnancy and most importantly halal products for the babies of this Ummah. Unfortunately we live in a world where true halal products have become hard to find, and as result of this people have resorted to using whatever they can get their hands on. We do not have halal products, we do not sell them but Insha'allah the aim of this website is to present to Muslims an updated list of what brand of foods/skincare products/bath products are halal or haraam when it comes to mommies who are expecting and their baby(ies).

How will this be done?
Currently this is in the works, we have come to what seems to be a solution but still need to work out a few issues. Insha'Allah once the website is laid out and opened full 'logistics' will be provided in regards to this issue.

So why a blog and not a webpage?
Currently the site is being designed and certain aspects are still being worked on. But we were advised to put the word out to see what feedback we receive and see how much of a demand there is. The greater the demand there is the greater the hits (visitors to site) we receive, the easier it is to present this website to a company which manufactures products that pertain to children and expectant mothers and have them help us.

Our aim is to present to these companies a large amount of potential customers. If we show them our concern for products devoid of haraam animal by-products and/or intoxicant alcohols, it concerns their business and they would A)give us honest responses in regards to their products so that they may make more sales or B) Perhaps even start changing their products when they see a high demand for zabiha/halal products amongst potential buyer. Insha'Allah this way we will also be able to stay up to date with the company and inform our viewers as soon as we receive any news of any changes in the ingredients of items listed here.

Please spread the word about HalalBaby and help us help one another to nourishing our children and ourselves with truly halal products insha'Allah. Please spread the word, we need as many as "hits" we can get!

Insha'Allah We hope this small effort will be of help for those seeking it. For any suggestions and inquiries you may have please e-mail HalalBaby@gmail.com and we will respond to you promptly insha'Allah.

Please make duaa Allah accepts our efforts and remember the ummah in your humble duaas, Jazakamullahu'khayran katheera.
