MuftiMenk Mentions that Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’ala tells us whoever stays away from haram or doubtful things he/she has protected himself/herself, his /her #Deen and his/her honor. When we speak of #halal (lawful) or #Haram (forbidden) there are many aspects not only food but the food might be halal; the money that we use to buy it might not be halal. So halal is food and drink as well as our #income as well as our #relationships.
Mufti Menk Quotes in this lecture “We should not become food lovers for the sake of loving the food but rather we should become halal lovers for the sake of loving Allah. Look at Sahaba (ra)- their thinking was absolutely immaculate, They could understand immediately this is right, this is wrong, why, the income was halal; the consumption was halal. The minute someone’s income is Haram they won’t understand right from wrong; they won’t see good from evil; they won’t understand who is actually calling them towards goodness and who is actually calling them towards destruction”.
