The Worst Thing A Human Can Consume!

Ibn Bukayr said:

‘A man came to [Imaam] Maalik ibn Anas….’

And he said: ‘O, Abu Abdullaah; I saw a drunkard man jumping trying to grasp the moon!! 

Thus I said to myself [making an oath]: ‘Let my wife be divorced if there is anything entering the stomach of a human which is worse than alcohol !!!’


So he [Imaam Maalik] said: ‘Let me look into this affair, so come back some other time.’


Thus the man came to him the next day.


But he [Imaam Maalik] said: ‘come back some other time; Let me look into this affair.’


Thus the man came to him the next day.


So he [Imaam Maalik] said to him:

‘Your wife is divorced!!!

Surely I went through the Book of Allaah & the Sunnah of His prophet: I did not see anything more worse than ribaa (usury), because Allaah announced war upon those who deal in it (ribaa)!!!”

Benefits & Inspirations from the story:

1. Always ask the scholars [of the sunnah] when you dont know.

2. The examplary conduct of the scholars who feared Allaah:

– they dont answer if they dont know.

– always going back to the Qur’an & the Sunnah.

3. The consummation of Ribaa is worse than alcohol.

May Allaah rectify our affairs.

    Assalaamu alaykum,

    This is not a fatwa, I am just informing you of what I know.

    I have’nt read anything which equates pork to alcohol, as in that the seller, the buyer, the preparer e.t.c are all cursed. I dont know of a text that says that.

    But I do know that it is haraam to sell pork. There are many ahadeeth on this. Bukhaari has a chapter in his saheeh which says: ‘Chapter: Killing the swine, and Jaabir said: the Prophet (sallahAllaahu alayhi wasallam) prohibited the sell of pigs.’

    And Ibn Abbaas narrated that the Prophet (sallahAllaahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Indeed when Allaah prohibits [consumption] eating of anything; He also prohibits its value.” [Musnad of Imaam Ahmad, authenticated by shaykh arnaaut].
