New Islamic search engine launched The I'm Halal search engine is designed to identify possible forbidden content and warn the user.

A new Islamic search engine has been launched to help Muslims to avoid ‘haram' or forbidden subjects when searching the web.

The ImHalal search engine, from AZS Media Group in the Netherlands, identifies possible haram content on a scale of one to three, with three being the worst. Content rated one or two is still accessible, if the user so chooses, but level 3 search results are automatically blocked.

Reza Sardeha, founder of AZS Media Group explained: "The idea grew up when some friends of mine complained that when they searched on Google or Yahoo once in a while they bumped into sexually explicit content.

"Before we started this, we got the feeling that a lot of people in the Middle East, a lot of Muslims, really avoided the internet and prevented their children from accessing the internet because they were afraid their children might come into contact with sexually explicit material," he told the Times newspaper.

The site has attracted around 100,000 separate users since its launch at the start of the month, although the company is aiming for 100 million users.

The service is available in 15 languages, including Arabic, English, Chinese, Farsi and Turkish.
