QUESTION:

As-salam `alaykum,

In your archives I have noticed he term "PAK", and I think it is
equivalent to halaal, but I am not sure.  Could you explain this term
for me, and indicate its language of origin?


ANSWER:

PAK is a Persian, Urdu, Gujarati word used for TAHIR, not Halal.  Instead
of using the expressions like "clean" or "virtually clean", we chose to use
the word PAK.
