In the early involvement of the founder of the IHF, it is the awareness of the need for verification of Halal standards for the Ummah. However, some governments of Islamic countries have implemented elements of halal through legal provisions, procedures and standards of management processes for integrated management methods of halal. This framework must be supported by Halal Shariah Council as a legitimate constitution. In fact, the majority of Islamic countries there is no legal system in such a way to implement it.
However, in non-Muslim countries, there are Muslims there who were able to create a certification body for muslim domestic consumptions and produced for export purposes.
For the sake of pure intentions and purposes, the founders felt the need for a platform that connects government official, public, scholars, umarra', scientists and businessmen in protection, control and monitoring of all aspects of food and non-food items. This includes aspects of financial resources who qualify based on shariah Maqassid from Quran and Sunnah Prophet Muhammad S.A.W.
The IHF and its founders were so instrumental in creating:
- Certification Agency - Turkey GIMDES
- Halal Shariah Council of Kosovo Bosnia
- Halal Development Program in Ashrakan, Russia
- Following the recognition of JAKIM, MUI and Muis.
- Consultation service to create Halal Shariah Council which will be held by the City Hall Baotao Mongolia, China
