Reasons for Corruption
Once Shaykh Mahmud Hasan (may Allah Most High have mercy on him), the great Indian faqih and hadith expert, was asked about the reason for the corruption and anarchy prevalent throughout the world.
He replied: “The type of food that is consumed, that is the type of effect that will become apparent. Generally, people no longer pay attention to the type of food they consume, not being careful whether it is lawful (halal), or has some elements of the unlawful (haram). If food is from lawful (halal) sources, then, Allah willing there will be no problems” (al-Malfuzat, 3: 42)
And Allah knows best.
F: It has been reported that, “Whoever eats the unlawful, the Fire is most deserving of them.”
