After spending considerable time choosing and preparing nutritious from-scratch foods fom the best possible ingredients for our families, it can be pretty frustrating to learn that the products we are using to cook, bake, eat, store food and clean with may actually be putting our families’ health at risk. But we can eliminate many of these hidden food, food prep and kitchen toxins that could otherwise leach their way into our systems. As a part of my Kitchen MacGyver series I'll be talking about the baby steps I've been taking to make my kitchen and home toxin-free. (and more economical also)
We know in Islam cleaniness is very important and according to a hadith in Muslim we know understand: “Purity is half of faith.” Similarly the Prophet of Islam (عليه السلام) once observed: “God is clean and loves cleanliness.” (Ibn Majah) So we as the stewards of our familes and homes it's our duty to keep them clean and pure.
“Allah loves those who are clean.” (Quran 2:222)
Nowadays we can find a million and one new products, methods and ideas that keep us spending more money only to be more sick (spiritually, mentally and physically), more broke (and even in debt), less productive and even more uncontented with our lives. In reality, Islam has already given us clear guidelines (Quran and Hadith) on how to worship HIM. And within these guidelines we have the simple steps to maintain our homes, bring contentment and productivity to our lives.
