I would like to invite a Muslim friend and his family over for dinner and want to know how to casually inquire if they are strict Halal when it comes to food so that we can make the appropriate adjustments if need be. Or, can it be as easy as asking "Are you Halal?"
Duplicate question issue: I do not consider this a duplicate question as the linked question doesn't cover my specific request of how to talk about Halal issues (they talk about everything but...). I'm merely asking for examples - I don't even know how to use the term "Halal" or if I should even use it. Is it the same as/similar to "Kosher". Is it wrong to even suggest that kind of comparison? I imagine there are also varying degrees of adherence. It would be great to be able talk about it with some semblance of dignity without having to ask "Do you guys....?"
