Turkey’s humanitarian aid beyond the open door, serious issues in our brothers and sisters who are in difficult situations by applying open-heart policy is to have hosted a note-deducted date. Turkey is an important reference that shows the importance we attach to the spirit of brotherhood is the axis around Syria, especially in recent years, his $ 25 billion in total aid. Although Turkey is making a very serious effort on humanitarian aid, microfinance, unfortunately, our country is not a widely used instrument.

Selangor University Instructor Mohamad Ropaning Sulong said that some enzymes are not halal because of the source and that thermostable enzyme separation can be used for food processing. “In fact, these substances can be taken with halal routes from cows, goats and chickens, but unfortunately most pigs are being used in the modern pharmaceutical industry,” says Sulong, who supplies many countries with pig-derived enzymes. In addition to this, many enzymes can be taken from fruits and vegetables but this method is not preferred because it takes time. My suggestion is that the enzymes obtained from the bacteria are used more. “
