CONTAMINATED FOOD

  1. CONTAMINATED FOOD
  2. HARAAM: Haraam foods are such foods in which the prohibition is clear. There is no doubt in its prohibitions, e.g. haraam meat and food in which haraam ingredients are used.
  3. SPIRITUALLY HARAAM: Halaal food, whether meat or any other kind acquired with unlawful money or by unlawful means. While such food remains halaal, its consumption is haraam for the one who has acquired it by foul or haraam means.
  • MUSTABAH: Such food, the permissibility of which is in doubt. Some factors indicate permissibility while other factors indicate prohibition. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) commanded abstention from such doubtful foods.
  1. PHYSICALLY IMPURE: Generally, the foods prepared in public places such as cafes, restaurants and hotels fall in this classification. Although halaal, such food is not tayyib (wholesome). Some physical dirt and unclean hands, etc. go into its production, hence its contamination.
  2. SPIRITUALLY IMPURE: Such food which is halaal and ordinarily tayyib, but for people of high taqwa (i.e. for the Auliya) even such halaal tayib food constitutes contamination, and impedes their spiritual progress, e.g. halaal tayyib food served by a faasiq or zaalim, halaal tayyib food served with a contaminated worldly motive.

 

The greater the degree of one’s abstention from contaminated food, the more will on incline towards piety and ibaadat and the converse is also true. Abstention from the first two categories (mentioned above) is Fardh. Eationg such food is a major sin for which Jahannuum is the punishment. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said about those who consume the contaminated food mentioned in these two categories:

“The Fire of Jahannum is more befitting for a human body nourished by haraam.”

The Auliya say that the high stages of piety a man attains are dependent on his halaal and tayyib consumption of food. A man can spend an entire lifetime in abundance of thikr, nafl ibaadat and fasting etc, but as long as the food he consumes is not physically and spiritually pure, he will be deprived of the high stages of taqwa and Divine proximity.

How an Imam Exposed the Anti-Muslim Normalcy and Repression via Tory Leadership Race

You must be the right type of Muslim with the right type of mindset to be allowed into the political arena. A Sajid Javid/Maajid Nawaz-type whose practice of Islam is non-existent and politically kow-tows to the neocons and pro-Israel lobby, would be ideal.

Are you a confident Muslim who asserts mainstream Islamic and political views that do not pander to the aforementioned circles?  Forget democracy and all that British Values nonsense and prepare to have the weight of the establishment bear down on you and your livelihood targeted.

A recent orchestrated furore exemplifies this.

Absolute Submission​

Sayyiduna Mugheerah bin Shu’bah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports the following incident:

On one occasion, I sent a proposal to marry a girl of the Ansaar. When I mentioned this to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he asked me, “Did you see the girl?” When I replied in the negative, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) recommended to me, “Look at her, for it is more likely that there will be affection and love between you(i.e. if you marry her after looking at her and finding her pleasing to your eye, there will be a greater chance of your marriage prospering).”

I thus proceeded to the girl’s home and told her parents what Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had mentioned. Hearing that I wanted to look at their daughter, the parents were reluctant. Hence, I stood and began to leave their home.

As I was leaving, the girl asked her parents to call me back. When I returned, she stood at the edge of the curtain and said, “If Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) instructed you to look at me then I permit you to do so. If not, then I strictly forbid you to look at me.” Accordingly, I looked at her and married her. Subsequently, she was extremely beloved to me and honoured in my sight.

(Ibnun Najjaar – Kanzul ‘Ummaal #45619)

Lessons:

1. The hayaa (modesty) of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) and their protectiveness over their womenfolk was such that the parents of the girl were initially reluctant when Sayyiduna Mugheerah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) asked to see their daughter. Similarly, until she learnt that it was the instruction of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), the daughter was not prepared to allow any strange man to look at her.

2. The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) were blessed with the quality of absolute submission before the instruction of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Hence, they always put their own intellect, understanding and emotion aside and completely complied with the wishes and desires of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), understanding that this was the key to success in both worlds. Similarly, if we wish true happiness and success, we will have to adhere strictly to the teachings of Deen.

3. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has taught us the guidelines that need to be adhered to regarding marriage, and has told us that following these guidelines are the key to a prosperous marriage. Hence, if we surpass the bounds of sharee‘ah and begin to engage in impermissible practices, such as the boy and girl communicating or even dating before marriage, we will lose the barakah (blessings) and help of Allah Ta‘ala which is essential for the marriage to prosper. Thus, we should always refer to the ‘Ulama to find out the limits of sharee‘ah so that we can ensure that we remain within the parameters of Deen.

SHELLAC- THE HARMS OF HARAAM SUBSTANCES

Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Shareef:
“O People! Eat from the earth that which is halaal and tayyib, and do not follow in the
footsteps of shaitaan. Verily, he is your open enemy. Verily, he instructs you with only evil
and immorality, and that you fabricate on Allah what you know not.”
Everything haraam is satanic and injurious to Insaan. Whatever Allah Ta’ala has made haraam, is harmful to us both physically and spiritually. The ordinance of Haraam is
not related to only the moral and spiritual spheres of life. It has a direct impact on even our physical bodies and life. Disease is the physical consequence of consuming haraam
substances. The ingredient Shellac is in this category of injurious substances. Shellac is the excreta of the female lac bug. Islam has made haraam the consumption of insects. By what stretch of wild imagination did ‘muftis’ find a loophole for declaring bug exreta to be halaal boggles the mind. The excreta of this female bug, namely Shellac, is
extremely powerful in its effects. Besides its usage in foodstuff, its other uses are as wood
finish, and a ‘tough all-natural primer. It is a sanding sealant, tannin-blocker, odour blocker, stain, and high-gloss varnish. It seals out moisture, hence is used in electrical applications. Gramophone records were also made from shellac. In the western world “shellac was the dominant wood finish until it was replaced by nitrocellulose lacquer’.
These insects suck the sap of trees and constantly excrete ‘stick-lac’. Delicious excreta
for SANHA. Their continuous excreting is remarkable. While excreta is naturally attracted by kufr, it is most surprising and lamentable to observe Muslims consuming with pleasure ‘foodstuff’ containing the SANHA-halaalized excreta. “Shellac is a natural polymer and is chemically similar to synthetic polymers, and thus can be considered a natural form of plastic. It can be turned into a moulding compound when mixed with wood flour and moulded under heat and pressure methods, so it can be classified as thermoplastic. …..Shellac yields a coating of superior durability and hardness. It was used as a oneproduct finish (combination stain and varnish-like topcoat) on decorative wood panelling used on walls and ceilings in homes.” What corruption does it do in your stomach? Other uses of shellac is for knotty pine panelling, on kitchen cupboards and hardwood floors. It is also used as polish for violins and guitars, toilet articles, picture frames, boxes, inkwells, dentures, as protective and decorative coating for cycle handlebars, as a harddrying adhesive for cycle tyres, particularly for track-racing,
binder in ink, protective coating on paintings, primer coat on wood. Shellac is an effective sealer and barrier against water vapour penetration. Most certainly it will drastically affect the bodily fluids and adversely tamper with the functioning of the internal organs. It has a variety of other uses as well. This is the substance that is
ingested by human beings. What harmful and injurious effects it exercises on the human body and its delicate internal organs can be imagined. Its E number is E904. It contains
crushed insects. So beware of this haraam, poisonous excreta of the female lac bug.
Despite the smallness of their size, the urine and excreta of insects can be dangerous.
The waste matter of insects has powerful effects. The following report appearing in The
Herald, 14 April 2011, is an eye-opener as to the power of the haraam excreta-poison
which SANHA has halaalized.
Worm wee gives chillis more heat
AN Australian farmer claims worm urine is helping him grow a chilli so hot it makes a jalapeno taste as mild as a strawberry.
The Trinidad Scorpion Butch T is so fiery that cooking with it requires protective clothing, including a face mask, Marcel de Wit said. He has had his harvest tested
and said it scores 1 463 700 Scoville heat units. Jalapenos rate just 2 750 on that scale
and Tabasco sauce 30 000. De Wit has put in for a world record, hoping to dislodge the
Naga Viper, which is recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records as the hottest
chilli variety.- Sapa-DPA
The consumption of halaalized carrion chickens has obliterated the villainy and gravity of eating crushed insects and SANHA-halaalized bug excreta. So dead has become the
Imaan of SANHA, that is if they have any Imaan left, that SANHA has taken great pleasure to announce the halaalization of the bug excreta describing it to be wholesome and halaal. What else can to be expected from the experts in the art of halaalizing rotten, diseased, haraam carrion?

SHELLAC- HALAAL OR HARAAM?

Q. On the question of Shellac, SANHA has changed its stance. From haraam
SANHA has made shellac now halaal. SANHA’s previous statement on Shellac
was: “Whilst Shellac is generally defined as a secretion of the lac insect, our investigations have revealed that Shellac does not only comprise of the secretion but also
insect residue which cannot be avoided and this forms part of the ingredient. SANHA has
researched, and consulted with various Muftis on the issue of Shellac for almost two years and exhausted every possible angle on this issue. The Muftis are unanimous that Shellac is not permitted for consumption.” SANHA has made a most surprising turn-about, and now its new statement reads:
“SANHA is pleased to announce that the Shellac ingredient used in confectionary, bakery, and pharmaceutical products amongst others, has been declared HALAAL. Muslim consumers may enjoy Halaal suitable products containing Shellac.” How did the haraam become halaal?
A. The HARAAM became ‘halaal’ by the usual carrion tricks and stunts of SANHA, the carrion halaalizer. These incorrigible carrion halaalizers have an inordinate appetite for haraam riba money which they acquire in their carrionhalaalizing shaitaani trade. Just imagine! ‘Two years exhaustive investigations and the unanimous fatwa of a panel of muftis’ declared this substance haraam. Now suddenly the haraam Shellac has become ‘halaal tayyib’ to be enjoyed. What has happened to the ‘two years of investigations’? On what did the muftis now base their ‘halaal’ fatwa? What constrained them to review all the facts of the two years of study? SANHA and the muftis owe to the Muslim community and to Allah Ta’ala the obligation of publishing all the arguments for the hurmat and the hillat of Shellac. Why conceal the arguments under the mountains of haraam, rotten, diseased, halaalized carrion chickens?
Let SANHA produce the detailed fatwas of the muftis for scrutiny. The issue of shellac is straight forward and simple. SANHA’s talk of having researched shellac for two years and that a whole panel of Muftis had to probe the issue as if it dealt with something extraordinary is plain skulduggery. The simple truth is that shellac is derived from insects. In fact it is the excreta of insects. Eating insects is Haraam. How can it then be halaal to consume the excreta of something which is haraam? SANHA should be asked to provide the arguments of the Muftis who had earlier ruled that shellac is haraam, as well as their latest arguments on which they base their fatwa of permissibility. After all, these arguments are not ‘military’ secrets. They must release their full fatwa. After two years of intense probing and studying they had issued the fatwa of haraam. Now they fabricate an opposite fatwa. It will be interesting to see what their new arguments are.
Shellac is haraam. All edible products containing this haraam substance are HARAAM. SANHA’s haraam fatwa is the effect of mercenary motives – to gain haraam revenue for further halaalizing a range of haraam products.

President Morsi: “Our Brother, Our Martyr”

In a Facebook post, Ahmad, Mohammad Morsi’s son wrote:

“ونعى أحمد نجل مرسي أباه في منشور على فيسبوك قال فيه “أبي عند الله نلتقي

“Father, we will meet in the presence of Allāh.”

President Mohamed Morsi (raḥimahu Allāhu) was a President like none other: the first and last democratically elected in Egypt’s known history; A ḥāfiẓ of the Book of Allāh, the husband of a ḥāfiẓah and the father of five ḥufāẓ; [1] a leader, and a representative of the deep-rooted, profound Muslim Brotherhood organisation that emblematises decades of Islamic Scholarship, humanitarian work, and unparalleled political organisation. The group was Egypt’s unsung backbone, running 1000 Non-Governmental Organisations and developing intuitions for the poor and destitute.

With the participation of Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood organised the masses and achieved Egypt’s most peaceful transition from a wedged military tyranny to Parliamentary Democracy. The rocket scientist by trade would go on to triumph in five consecutive elections: the 2011 constitutional referendum; the 2011 to 2012 People’s Assembly vote; the 2012 Upper House of Parliament, the 2012 Presidential Election; and the referendum on the new constitution.

Despite President Morsi ruling Egypt on the lowest paid salary for a President in the world himself, he managed to increase agricultural exports increased by 20%, he reduced the Central Bank’s deficit reduced by 45%, and he raised economic growth to 2.4%. [1] Amidst perpetual protests and targeted character assassination, his administration transformed Egypt into the much-desired civil state.

It was President Morsi who answered the cries of the Syrians, severing Egypt’s ties with the bloody regime and exclaiming to all hearers – “We hear your call, Syria” – and supported its revolution. [1] Who can forget when Morsi stifled ‘Israel’s’ war on Gaza in 2012 on-par another massacre, [1] withdrawing Egypt’s ambassador to the Zionist entity. Ask the 2300 people who were killed in Gaza in 2014, or the 10,000 wounded during what the coup regime did one year after Morsi was overthrown.

2013 saw one of history’s worst crackdowns on pro-democracy activists. President Morsi was deposed, and him, along with hundreds of leaders in the Muslim Brotherhood and thousands of activists were incarcerated and trialled under the most derisory accusations. The six-year-long trial swung between jail and death sentences whilst Morsi stood defiant, upright, and smart behind a glass window, but never conceding his position as Egypt’s highest authority.

Other than the 3000 of those who were killed parading in his support, a fraction of the 13.2 million who waited under the sun to cast their votes, tens of thousands of his supporters were detained under forged charges and scores were assassinated in the bloody military crackdown that continues today. Unfortunately, this was much to the silence of the international community that instead recognised the despot, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, inviting him to economic forums and prestigious dinners, and bolstering him with hundreds of billions of petrol money.

“It is not befitting for a leader to follow concessions… all praise is due to Allāh, I strived 15 years for martyrdom…[moments before his execution he said] this finger that declares the oneness of Allāh in ṣalāh refuses to write a letter in recognition of this tyrant’s authority.” [2]

During a ‘court’ hearing on the 17th of June, 2019, President Mohamed Morsi collapsed and returned to his lord. Morsi and his family indicated to the ‘court’ that there was an imminent danger to his life due to a prevailing medical condition towards the beginning of May. The ‘court’, however, ignored his pleas. [3]

Mohamed Morsi was an icon of patience and perseverance against oppression, tyranny and the thugs of injustice. He was an icon of struggle and daʿwah to Allāh (subḥānahu wa taʿālā) in his youth whilst in the United States. Having returned with intents to revolutionise Egypt’s ailing industry, he was battered by military pawns and pseudo regimes. [1] Morsi is, today, a martyr of injustice, and has returned to his Lord whilst standing in the face of tyranny:

Jābir (raḍiy Allāhu ʿanhu) narrates that the Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) said:

“The leader of the martyrs is Hamzah b. ʿAbd al-Muṭṭalib and a man who stood up before a tyrant and enjoined good and forbade evil, and he killed him.”

The Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) informed us:

“Everyone will be raised in the condition in which he dies.”

President Morsi died whilst being trialled unjustly and will, by Allāh (subḥānahu wa taʿālā)’s leave, be resurrected standing in front of the tyrants paid to level counterfeit accusations at him. His adversaries will not be able to go far. Who will be jeering then when the tables turn and they are the ones facing Allāh (subḥānahu wa taʿālā)’s Court? Whilst President Morsi’s days in dark, dreary dungeons are replaced with everlasting palaces and gardens of delight, he will see his oppressors, maybe glimpse the once tyrant standing to hear the verdict in the Court of Allāh – “They will come forth, with humbled eyes…” [4] – the angels, the Prosecutors, his limbs, his witnesses, and Allāh the Judge. This is the final decree and the sweetest retribution.

The companion of the Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam), Haram b. Milhān, only declared, “I have won by the Lord of the Kaʿbah,” after the spear was plunged into his body whilst on his journey to teach the Qur’ān. [4] The believer of Yā Sīn, ‘Ḥabīb al-Najjār’ saw nothing of a ‘worldly positive result’ but was promised Paradise at the instant he was martyred. [4] Today, Morsi (raḥimahu Allāhu) joins them.

“And do not think Allāh to be heedless of what the unjust do; He only respites them to a day on which the eyes shall be fixedly open.” [5]
