Abstract

The previous study has argued that the focus of advertising has caused many socio-economic hazards in damaging moral and cultural values by causing exploitation and fraud. Engaging in a systematic content analysis procedure, this article aims to explore the applications of Islamic Legal Maxims in advertising with regards to the manufacturers' practices in supplementary food products industries. Next, explicit purposes are to determine the malpractices among manufacturers in their advertising as well as a shariah-compliant parameter as a guideline to manufacturers in advertising supplementary food products based on the integration of Islamic Legal Maxim and principles of Shariah.

Keywords: Advertising, supplementary food, Islamic Legal maxim
