THE HARAAM POISON AND FILTH OF FAST FOODS
In a deluge of articles published by a variety of non-Muslim experts, the harms of fast foods and the severe diseases caused by such junk called ‘food’ have been emphasized with considerable elaboration. The following is one such article. It is indeed lamentable that Muslims who are commanded by Allah Ta’ala to consume halaal and tayyib (pure, lawful and wholesome) food, have descended into gluttonous consumption of impure, unlawful and physically and morally ruinous ‘foods’- foods laced with poisons and haraam substances.
Instead of deriving lesson from the austere and abstemious lifestyle of the Sahaabah and the Auliya, Muslims devour filth, carrion and poisonous substances in the same way as do the kuffaar. While it is not suggested that the masses emulate the rigid and austere way of the Sahaabah and the Auliya, it is incumbent to adopt the minimum requisite, which is total abstention from haraam and mushtabah foods.
