The world’s first “Islamic orientated” internet search engine, which flags content that might be considered “haraam” – or forbidden – by Muslims, has been hailed a success by its creators after it attracted more than 500,000 users in its first two weeks on the web.
ImHalal.com has been designed to “help Muslims explore the internet in a safe and clean environment”, according to Reza Sardeha, the 20-year-old business management student who runs it.
The site works by assigning the search terms that are plugged in by users a “haraam level”, which indicates the likelihood of the results they bring up touching upon things forbidden under Islam.
