AL-ARAF (THE HEIGHTS)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.
Allah allows us to eat heartily, but warns us against excess. O Children of Adam! Wear your beautiful apparel at every time and place of prayer: eat and drink; But waste not by excess, For Allah loveth not the wasters. (Quran chapter SEVEN: verse THIRTY ONE) Its amazing how much food is wasted each day while millions around the globe are starving. There is also a saying of Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) that while eating, take the food out from the side and not the middle. Eat from the food which is closest to you. While this is about serving oneself food, could it also mean to buy locally grown food?
