THE PROPHETIC DIET
Your safety matters. Due to COVID-19, this MasterClass will be conducted online on Google Meet.
Umar ibn Al-Khattab said:
“Beware of meat, for it has addictiveness like the addictiveness of wine.”
[Imam Malik’s Muwatta]
The month of Ramadhan has made apparent to us how refraining from excessive eating can transform our lifestyle completely. Or has it?
Shawwal brings new challenges in our pursuit of a clean diet. Peer pressure supposedly leads us to taking one too many of those sweet and savoury delicacies. We witness record-breaking speeds of food consumption, as bottles after bottles of food and drinks empty over a matter of hours. Drinks are free flow, and your dinner table is the venue of a seemingly never-ending meat festival. This prompts the question, how did The Prophet ﷺ celebrate with food, and how was his normal, day-to-day life in relation to sourcing food and consuming food. Above all, what are the underpinnings of The Sunnah’s philosophy on food?
Ramadhan came and went, with hopes that it might leave a lasting impact on our lives, at least until the next Ramadhan pays us a visit. How do bring the spirit of Ramadhan into the rest of the months, at least in terms of our dietary practices? Let’s dive deeper into the world of The Prophetic Diet, to cleanse our eating habits, for a life of true Taqwa, within and beyond the prayer mat.
Points Of Discussion Include:
• Everything The Prophet ﷺ Ate:
A Holistic Study of The Prophet’s ﷺ Diet
• Seeking Istijabah: Blessed Times To Call Upon God
• Defining The Sunnah of Food: Using & Misusing The Term “Sunnah” As Food Labels
• Unprophetic Gastronomic Realities: How We Source Food Today & Related Ethical Complications
• Implementing The Prophetic Diet Today: Contemporary Challenges & Seeking The True Organic
“Oh humanity! Eat from what is lawful and good on the earth, and do not follow Shaytan’s footsteps. He is truly your sworn enemy.”
[Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayat 168]
The modern landscape of food and everything that revolves around its consumption is not a very pretty sight. There are layers upon layers of complexities that surround this simple idea that is food. What can we do to unravel the dark realities of the food that we eat today, and what can we do to bring ourselves closer to The Prophetic Diet, despite the many obstacles we face along that path?
Our first MasterClass after Ramadhan attempts to bring us back to the conscience that made us think twice about the food we ate during the blessed month that has just left us. We shall now strive to live the months leading to the next Ramadhan, with hopes that we will enhance our understanding and practice of The Prophetic Diet, and thus, achieve Taqwa in our food consumption habits.
Food is the fuel that enables us to worship, so let’s ensure that we fuel ourselves with clean and pure energy, so that our soul and body can work towards Taqwa, with natural synergy.
