Consumption that is a determinant variable of Indonesian economic growth often ignores the negative externalities of objects consumed. In addition, often the commands in the Qur’an have not been understood in depth in that the substance has not been successfully raised. This paper attempts to examine the concept of halal from sūrah al- Baqarah: 168 by using the tafsīr method to analyze its impact on economic growth. The paper is a qualitative exploration using content analysis that combines tafsīr bi al-ra’yi with tafsīr bi al-ma’thūr. By using economic interpretation, this paper was able to further discuss consumption as one of the main pillars of Islamic economics, especially with regard to the five basic needs in the maqāsid sharia. Three main aspects stated by Halal At Thayyib are the main condition of the object of consumption in Islam. First, the object does not contain illicit elements. Second, it contains benefits that have a positive impact. Third, it does not contain anything that is harmful to the body and mind. This study also found that in terms of macro consumption, Halal At Thayyib is able to improve quality economic growth by eliminating negative externalities.
