O mankind! Eat of that which is lawful and good on the earth and follow not the footsteps of shaytan. Verily he is to you an open enemy. (2:168)
Reflecting on this ayah we learn so much. Allah not only tells us to eat what is halal but also good healthy food. Allah also makes the connection between food and the shaytan. Shaytan also uses food to trick us, getting us to eat unhealthy causes bad effects on our ibadah. We cant concentrate on our salah and feel lazy. So we should strive to not only eat what is halal but also good for our bodies so that we may increase and remain consistent in our ibadah. Many of us don’t even realise that eat a healthy balanced diet can also affect our ibadah and in turn affect our aakhirah. It is an area that many of us neglect but inshaAllah we can change this and eat better and we will be able to see the positive effects in our ibadah.
