Issue No.227 – May 2023 : Thul Qadah 1444

Islam strongly advocates the consumption of not just Halaal but also wholesome and pure foods as commanded in the Noble Quraan, “O humanity! Eat from what is lawful and good on the earth and do not follow Satan’s footsteps. He is truly your sworn enemy.”  Chapter 2, Verse 168.

Our Prophet (peace be upon him) stated, “Indeed, your body has a right over you” (al-Bukhari). Thus, protection and preservation of one’s body from illness and disease is part of this right which is best done by carefully choosing what we eat. Consumption of wholesome food and a natural lifestyle is perhaps closest to the prescribed Islamic dietary doctrine of Halaal and wholesome. Accordingly, we encourage and support initiatives in this regard.

The Plant Powered Show which takes place in Cape Town this weekend on the 27th, 28th & 29th May 2023 at the CTICC in Cape Town is aimed at those looking to live and enjoy a healthier, more conscious and sustainable lifestyle with a smaller environmental footprint.

Remember all plant-based foods are not automatically Halaal. SANHA has proudly partnered with this show and will be present to answer your queries.

The Show features celebrity chefs, mixologists, health and wellness gurus, a marketplace filled with plant-based food, drink and lifestyle products and a raft of exciting and not-to-be-missed show experiences. It is going to be inspirational, invigorating, engaging and energetic.

It is South Africa’s premier live vegan and plant-based food, drink and lifestyle show and one you and friends and family cannot afford to miss.
