Do not eat such food which are you not sure of. 4.A person who avoids doubtful things safeguards his Imaan and his honour. 1.A person who uses doubtful things might indulge in haraam. 2.Remember, when in doubt leave it out or first find out.
Hadhrat Abu Bakr had a slave who used to give him a portion of his daily income. Once the slave brought some food from which Hadhrat Abu Bakr ate a morsel From it. The slave said, "You always first ask me where I get the food from, but today you did not ask." Hadhrat Abu Bakr replied, "I was so hungry that I forgot. Tell me now, how did you get this food?" The slave said, "Before I became a Muslim, I used to do fortune-telling (which is haraam). I did some fortune-telling for some people who promised to pay me later. I happened to see those people today celebrating a wedding and they gave me this food."
Abu Bakr D said, "Ah! This will kill me." He then tried to vomit the morsel which He had swallowed but could not do so as his stomach had been quite empty. Somebody suggested that he drink water to his fill and then try to vomit. He kept on drinking water and vomiting until the morsel came out. Somebody remarked, "May Allah have mercy on you! You put yourself through such difficulty for a single morsel."
Hadhrat Abu Bakr said, "I would have taken it out even if I had to lose my life. I have heard Rasulullah saying,'The flesh nourished by haraam food will go into the fire of Jahannum.' I therefore quickly tried to vomit that morsel lest any portion of my body should receive nourishment from it."
The pious people would not eat anything until they were perfectly sure that it was halaal. If there was the slightest doubt, they would not eat it and if by mistake they ate it, they would immediately vomit it out.
