Hadith Explanation

Body Fed on Haraam

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The body fed on illicit (Haraam) earnings is proper fuel for Hell-Fire.” [Sahih Bukhari]

Earn a lawful living. To earn money by any of the means forbidden by Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) is to feed the Fire of Jahannum into your own and your children’s bellies. Like a bag full of dung doesn’t belong in a Masjid, a body full of Haraam earnings doesn’t belong in Jannah.

No Ibadah (worship), done by a body fed on Haraam earnings, is accepted by Allah (subhana wa ta’ala). This is because Allah is pure and accepts only that which is pure. Would you accept a delicious box of treats from a hand covered in shit?
