Excellence of a Halal (lawful) morsel

We should always earn, eat and make others eat Halal sustenance, as Halal morsel has great virtues. It is stated on page 179 of the first volume of the 1548-page book ‘Faizan-e-Sunnat’ published by Maktaba-tul-Madinah [the publishing department of Dawat-e-Islami]:

Sayyiduna Imam Muhammad Ghazali عَلَیۡهِ رَحْمَةُ اﷲِ الوَالِی has quoted the saying of a saint رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه in the second volume of Ihya-ul-‘Uloom: ‘When a Muslim eats the first morsel of his Halal food, his previous sins are forgiven. And the person who goes to a place of humiliation in search of Halal sustenance, his sins fall like the leaves of a tree. (Ihya-ul-‘Uloom, vol. 2, pp. 116)

Four sayings of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّی اللّٰہ تعالٰی علیہ واٰلہٖ وسلَّم

1.       A person makes a long journey, his hair is untidy and body is covered with dust (i.e. his condition indicates that whatever prayer he makes will be answered). He lifts his hand towards the sky and says: ‘O Rab, O Rab (i.e. he prays) but his food is Haraam, his drink is Haraam, and his clothes are Haraam and his nourishment is Haraam. How can then his prayer be answered? (i.e if you wish that your prayers be answered, then earn lawful sustenance.)

(Muslim, pp. 506, Hadees. 1015-25)
