Call for applications
We would like to cordially invite your students to join our ASEAN ISLAMIC YOUTH LEADERSHIP SUMMIT 2017 (AIYLS 2017).
What is AIYLS all about?
In order for any product to be considered halal or legal under Islamic law, it must meet specific production regulations. Certain foods and manufacturing process are legal, while others are not those are not called Haraam. The halal industry includes companies that are certified halal, meaning that their products and methods meet the appropriate criteria, as well as those that offer halal services and lifestyle choices. This industry is not restricted to Muslim countries, but has a presence in many nations around the world. The only way to truly fulfill the potential of halal industry is for players to embrace the different trends, lifestyle and worldview of youths today. The youth of today is very much technology-dependent. In Malaysia, 60% of the total population uses the internet with 16 million tweets posted every day and 5.5 million Malaysian accounts on Instagram. More than one-third of the population has Facebook accounts, of which 40% are between the ages of 18-24. Then, the youth of today has more cross-cultural interactions than any generation in history. This is helped by the internet that provides borderless connectivity within seconds.
