Eat & Drink -Do Not Waste-

The Quran says: “And eat and drink but do not be extravagant. Certainly He (Allah) does not like those who are extravagant.” (Surah Araf)

In another verse the Quran states: “Verily, those who waste are the brothers of the Shayateen.” (Surah Isra)

At such functions we can spare a thought for the needy and avoid waste and extravagance.

The following are some suggestions:

  • Do not be extravagant in food preparation, or when ordering or hosting a meal.
  • Only take that quantity of serving that you will be able to consume.
  • Do not overfill your plate and waste half of it - this is contrary to the Sunnah of eating.
  • Leftover food should be appropriately packed and given to those who would appreciate it.
  • Be grateful for the bounties of Allah Ta'ala and avoid wastage, at all costs.
