I quoted from the letter shared by a GIMDES volunteer.
‘Assalamu Alaikum Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Lately I’ve become very careful about ‘halal food’, perhaps more than necessary. But of course, this brought me great difficulties. So much so that I started to question what everything that entered my mouth was. Every person who says “I am a Muslim” can have the same reaction when confronted with it.
“O humanity! Eat from what is lawful and good on the earth and do not follow Satan’s footsteps. He is truly your sworn enemy.” (Surah al-Baqara, Ayat 168)
However, the life instinct also manages to find living solutions suitable for new conditions in the shortest time possible. Until 20 years ago, this search was carried out with the best method, but with the establishment of GIMDES, products based on scientific findings have become available and in the HDM Market chain, it has become possible to find 20 thousand types of 100% Halal and Tayyib products that will meet all the needs of a kitchen. For those who cannot give up old habits, halal certified products are now available.
There is an important rule in our religion. “If you want to be saved, you have to save.” So you are responsible for the notification. To recommend the truth. We are also responsible for hating wrongdoing with our hands, our tongues, and if we cannot, with our hearts. All of these are indispensable duties of being a believer.
May God guide us to the right path and protect us from falling into error.
Everyone who claims to be a Muslim should read this book and do more research on halal food. It is not enough to just avoid certain known harams. We must also investigate and find the harams hidden among the halals and react to them.
It is a work that reveals the state of foods sold in markets with colorful packages and health slogans, and contains information that people who want to consume halal and healthy food must know.
Undoubtedly, Allah has sent down both the disease and the medicine that cures it; He has created a cure for every disease. Then treat yourself, do not treat yourself with what is haram.
Undoubtedly, Allah has not made your healing from things that He has forbidden for you.
Allah Almighty cursed alcohol, the one who makes it, the one who has it made, the one who drinks it, the one who carries it, the person to whom it is carried, the one who sells it, the one who buys it, the one who drinks it, and the one who makes it drink.
For example, to a sincere Muslim lying in a sick bed, “You swallowed a pig” or to children who are happily eating the candies they bought from the candy store with great appetite, “Do not eat them, there is a pig inside” or who knows how surprised these people would be if they said “be careful, you’re eating pork” to people who are licking their ice cream to cool off from the sweltering heat of summer?
