ETTIQUETTS OF EATING IN ISLAM

islam

The religion of Islam is a complete code of life. It is not limited to physical, spiritual and emotional areas; rather it gives teaching to all aspects of life and also tells how to fulfil one purpose. What is the purpose of human life? Islam gives a very clear vision that the purpose of human life is to worship the One True God ALLAH Almighty. It is a thing to understand that all our actions, deeds no matter how grand or how small or trivial, can be easily turned into worship. All actions that we do in the daily course of our life can be raised to the level of worship simply by remembering to praise ALLAH Almighty and to seek His pleasure.

Religion Islam makes remembrance so easy by giving us proper guidelines. It teaches us in a moderate and gentle way that life is given to us to worship ALLAH Almighty, and worship is the only meaning of human life. Even eating has manners and etiquette; Food plays vital role in our daily lives. Islam also gives great importance to Cleanliness and purity and it is an important part of religion Islam.

Not only a Muslim purifies and cleans himself before doing acts of worship but he must pay great attention to the hygiene and cleanliness of his bodies and his surroundings at all times. Our bodies are gift to us and living in filthy and dirty conditions causes so many dangerous disease and ill health. Therefore, before cooking or making food it is very important to be sure that the food, the food preparing area and the hands through a person is going to touch the food must be clean.

Muslims begin every action or task by mentioning the name of ALLAH Almighty, and so eating. It is very significant to keep in mind that Islam is a moderate way of life; we must not overindulge and also should not deprive ourselves of the delicious food that ALLAH Almighty has provided for us. Eating by using the right hand is one such etiquette and it is obligatory for Muslims to eat with their right hand unless there is a genuine reason such as injury or illness.

In situations where all are eating from common platters, taking the food that is near and directly in front of you is considered good manners. Reaching over other peoples and looking for the most delicious pieces of food that you want to eat can make others uncomfortable and it gives your bad impression or makes you appear to be greedy or ungrateful.  Part of the etiquette of food eating includes eating in moderation or limit and not overindulging in eating no matter how much appetizing the food is.

HOW TO GET WISDOM THROUGH HOLY QURAN

holy quran

Most of the Muslims wrongly believe that only by keeping and learning to read Holy Quran, they can fulfil their religious responsibilities and duties. The basic theme of The Holy Quran is embedded in recognizing and acting upon its Ayats (verses) in an appropriate manner. How can a person complete its faith by just believing in Islamic lessons and teachings, but using them in the wrong manner? It means that a person has not completely interpreted the meaning of wordings of Quran, e.g. those Muslims who are joining so called Islamic forces like Talibans etc. in the name of Jihad, and who actually kill innocents and acting as tyrants, that only shows that they do not have a complete knowledge of Islam.

Now, talking about Holy Quran, and its life changing Ayats (verses), common belief is that the a person who learns it by heart will enter Jannah (paradise) along with its parents, while the exact meaning of it this Hadith is that the Hafiz (learner) of Holy Quran should act upon its lessons. ALLAH Almighty has blessed Muslims with golden pearls in the form of Holy Quran’s verses, so that we could get enlightenment and guidance from them, and transform our lives according to Islamic teaching in the best way. Following are few of the many messages of the Holy Quran, through which we can seek wisdom and understanding.

  • Avoiding unclear matters

“A little knowledge is hazardous” is a famous expression that compels a person not to indulge in things and acts which it has insufficient understanding of, because sooner or later, the condition would turn dangerous for that person. Islam also forbids Muslims from such issues that are not clear to us. The Gracious ALLAH has warned us about this matter in the verse 17:36 of Holy Quran

“And do not pursue that of which you have no knowledge. Indeed, the hearing, the sight and the heart – about all those [one] will be questioned.”

This is what we must keep in mind before discussing about matters in our Deen (religion), before totally understanding about them. On a general note, we ought to also avoid going towards unsure affairs like Gambling that is prohibited in Islam.

  • Reflecting on one’s existence

The non Muslims, especially, Atheists, who even deny the existence of ALLAH Almighty, they do not think about how we come in to this life. ALLAH clearly says in Holy Quran, verse 20:55

“From the earth, We created you, and into it We will return you, and from it, We will extract you another time.”

Science has also proved that body of human consists of many elements found in the earth soil, and as The Quran says that we are made from earth.

  • Praying for ALLAH’S consistent guidance

No matter how much abilities and knowledge one possesses, there comes a time when things begin to get tougher, and then it looks for someone’s help in this regard. Same applies to Muslim’s life, which believes in ALLAH, but often gets distracted by satanic thoughts. That is the reason why Holy Quran has repeatedly emphasized on looking for The ALLAH Almighty supervision to remain on the correct pathway.
