A literature study of number of publications listed in Scopus has been performed. Observation is limited only from 1990 to mid of 2015. The word halal is used in searching title, abstract, and keywords of the publications. Only four subject areas are considered: (i) agricultural and biological sciences, (ii) engineering, (iii) medicine, and (iv) computer sciences. In general sum of all fields tends to increase rapidly between 2010 and 2012 but then they decrease in the last three years of observation range. It also makes smooth pattern from 1999 until 2009. Individual field shows fluctuated pattern. Moore’s law in form of N(t) = N_0 exp[k(t – t_0)] is implemented by setting some parameters such as offset of starting time t_0, exponent constant k, and proportional constant N_0. Correlation among observed fields is also discussed in brief.
