The seventh fard is “To consume only Halal Foods and Drinks”.

Eating is a basic requirement of every human being. It is obligatory upon every Muslim to acquire knowledge
about what constitutes halal and haram food. What is the Islamic method of slaughtering animals? What are
some of the ways by which Muslims today slaughter and how do Muslims get their halal meat? Who could
slaughter animals? In this lecture, Ustadh Mahmud answers these questions and more as he goes through
the basic principles of eating halal food.

The series of lectures entitled 54 Fara’id, delivered by Ustadh Mahmud A. Kürkçü, covers the basics of Islam
as enumerated by the great Imam of the tabi’een, Hasan Al-Basri(rh). It is incumbent upon every Muslim to
be aware of and put these basic principles into practice in their daily lives.
