The Beloved Rasūl صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has stated, ‘Whoever consumes a single morsel of Ḥarām food, his Ṣalāĥ will not be accepted for forty days and his Du’ā will be rejected for forty days.’ (Firdaus-ul-Akhbār, vol. 4, pp. 243, Ḥadīš 6263)
Punishment for consuming a Haram morsel
It is reported that when a person eats a Ḥarām morsel, every angel of the earth and the skies keeps cursing him until that Ḥarām morsel remains in his stomach. If he dies in the same state, Hell will be his abode. (Mukāshafa-tul-Qulūb, pp. 10)
The Beloved and Blessed Rasūl صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has stated, ‘When a person decreases his consumption of food, his chest is filled with Nūr (spiritual light).’ (Al-Jāmi’-uṣ-Ṣaghīr, pp. 35 Ḥadīš 469)
Four pearls of wisdom
Sayyidunā Ibrāĥīm Bin Adĥam رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has stated: ‘I remained in the company of some saints in a mountain of Lebanon; each of them gave me the following pieces of advice to convey to the people.
He who fills his stomach with food will not attain pleasure in worship.
He who sleeps a lot will not have blessing in his age.
He who desires only the pleasure of people, will be despairing of the pleasure of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ.
He who often backbites and speaks unnecessarily will not die as a Muslim.’
