FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The name derived from a fictional character created by the founders of JIBRIL Restaurant Group for UiTM Mock Trial in 2013. JIBRIL (Jibril Azym), is a story about a sophisticated autistic lawyer with an intelligent mind, where he can read minds and solve cases in unconventional ways. When we started the restaurant business in 2015, we envision this is the kind of cafe where JIBRIL will hang out at. Sophisticated, unconventional, yet accessible.
JIBRIL Restaurant Group is 100% owned by Malay Muslims – please refer to the “Management Team” section for further details. Our foods/drinks are also normal Halal foods/drinks of which our suppliers are all Halal certified by JAKIM. However, we personally, still do not have Halal certification. We engaged a consultant for this exercise but unfortunately has to put this intention on hold due to MCO / COVID-19 pandemic. Great news! We have re-initiated the process now, as we speak (Halal Application No: HALAL-20220117-223421 PM).
Based on the above, since we have not officially obtained Halal certification from JAKIM, it is best to assume that we are Muslim-friendly eatery i.e. no alcohol & no lard/pork.

Mosque is nearby with a few minutes drive, while a proper surau is available at Pelita Restaurant with a few minutes walk.

For JIBRIL Bangi, we do not have a surau. The nearest surau requires you to drive for a short minutes to the nearby Petronas gas station or Seksyen 3 Tambahan.
