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 are the Sharia rulings we need to know if we go hunting? Can we eat raw meat? What do we do if impurities fall into oil or milk? What does the Sharia say about pig meat and all its by- products? Pig leather is used in most leather products today. How do we recognise if a leather jacket or shoe has pig leather? 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.
