Issue No.117 – October 2022 : Rabi al_Awwal 1444
Amongst the many directives of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), is
the emphasis on the rights of our bodies which is a trust (amaanah) given to us by
Almighty Allah. He stated, “… And your bodies have a right over you…” (Bukhari)
We fulfil the rights of our bodies by eating right. In the words of
the Holy Qur’aan, eating that which is Halaal and Tayyib, as per the verse: “O
Mankind eat of the earth that which is Halaal and Tayyib (wholesome)” (Chapter
2, Verse 168) constitutes what eating right means.
Islam acknowledges the importance of food consumption in nourishing the human
body and thus whilst allowing good and beneficial foods, it forbids those that are
harmful and injurious to one’s health. Most of the diseases encountered today are
linked to indiscriminate consumption. Halaal food is a gift from Almighty Allah and
consuming it is an act of worship. Do so with humility and moderation and always
thank Almighty Allah for His Bounties.
The closest in the market to food which is Halaal & wholesome (Tayyib) is food that
is organic, unrefined, least processed and free from harmful chemicals.
SANHA encourages and supports all endeavours in making Halaal & wholesome
foods available to the community. Therefore, we support the first Organic &
Natural Products Expo to be hosted in Johannesburg on the 21st to
23rd October, 2022.
