The organization was formed by concerned Ulama (Muslim Scholars), Businessmen, and Muslim consumers who saw the need to establish an independent, professional, progressive, transparent, dynamic and contemporary Halaal Certifying Body that would rise above petty ideological and Islamic political differences.
The NIHT is now fully representative of Ulama (Islamic Scholars), academics, scientists, businessmen and Muslim consumers from across the Islamic ideological spectrum and since inception in October 2000 its growth has been phenomenal.
