The Fiqh of Food and Clothing

Allaah has laid down laws and legislations which every believer is required to uphold in all aspects of his life. Therefore a servant of Allaah pays great attention to the Shar’i rulings pertaining to his clothing, his food, his drink, his earning etc. The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) stated the importance of consuming halaal, in this world and the next, for instance he (صلى الله عليه وسلم) informed us that eating haraam will be a cause for the rejection of our supplications. For this reason the Muslim should be aware of eating that which is it not permissible to eat, and clothing himself with that which he is not permitted to be clothed in.
