The seventh fard is “To consume only Halal Foods and Drinks”. Eating from a halal source is a basic requirement of every Muslim. It is obligatory upon every Muslim to ensure that what he consumes, wears and earns is 100% halal. A single morsel of haram food can affect our spiritual heart. Hence, we need to be vigilant of anything that brings benefit to us. In this lecture, Ustadh Mahmud answers some frequently asked questions on the income earned from zakat, fortune telling and begging. 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.
