Eat of what is on earth, lawful and good; and do not follow the footsteps of Satan, for he is to you an avowed enemy.” From this verse,we urge to eat good and halal foods and not to follow the steps of devils.Islam imposes strict dietary laws, guided by the Qur’an and Sunnah.From this verse also,we must consume foods that rich in nutrients and beneficial to one’s health. According to the Al-Quran,verse 141,chapter al-An’am: “It is He Who has brought into being gardens116 - the trellised and untrellised - and the palm trees, and crops, all varying in taste, and.the olive and pomegranates, all resembling one another and yet so different. Eat of their fruits when they come to fruition and pay His due on the day of harvesting. And do not exceed the proper limits, for He does not love those who exceed the proper limits.” This verse point out the benefit of fruits as the best food and its prosperity of life to humankind.There are variety of fruits and drinks that mention in Al-Quran such as honey, dates, abbatussauda (black seeds) and milk.Dates are mentioned 20 times in the Quran using several terms such as nakhil,al-nakhl,rutob and nakhlah,while grapes are mentioned 11 times in the Quran using terms such as a’nab and al-a’nab.
