My volunteer friends and I would like to host a welcoming dinner for Arabic refugees, but we are not sure what kind of food we should avoid according to Halal rules? Can anyone give us a little bit more information about this topic?

Thanks a million!

Hallo, according to the Islamic dietary laws foods that are not halal for Muslims are:
- Pork
- Blood
- Intoxicants and alcoholic beverages
- Animals killed incorrectly and/or without Allah's name being pronounced before slaughter.

I believe the best you guys could do is to avoid meat, especially pork, and alcohol.

Hope it helps!
