05- Understanding the Divine Command – Eating of the Wholesome – Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

In this important Qur’an circle, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani calls all to eat of the wholesome and pure and stay away from the vile as mentioned in the Qur’an where Allah says: “O, believers! Eat from the good things We have provided for you. And give thanks to Allah if you truly worship Him alone. He has only forbidden you to eat carrion, blood, swine, and what is slaughtered in the name of any other than Allah. But if someone is compelled by necessity—neither driven by desire nor exceeding immediate need—they will not be sinful. Surely Allah is All-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” Sura al- Baqara:172-173

Shaykh Faraz goes into detail explaining not only what is wholesome but why one should eat from it. As eating is a command, but Allah puts limits on the command to eat. One should eat with an intention to give one’s body is due Shaykh Faraz explains. 

Shaykh Faraz continues by explaining how blessed one is for being able to eat from the wholesome. He explains everything from the sea is permitted to eat,  and he ends by explaining the important principle that which you cannot consume you can not give to another.
