In the name of Allah, the most
beneficent, the most merciful
And We said, "O' Adam, dwell, you and your wife, in
Paradise; and eat at pleasure wherever you like, but do not go near this tree,
otherwise you will be (counted) among the transgressors."
One of the first reference to Halal and Haram can to be found in the
above ayah. Allah SWT instruct Adam A.S and his wife to dwell and eat from
anywhere from Paradise. Allah SWT also instructs them NOT TO GO near a particular tree. This clearly shows that we should
proceed towards Halal and refrain from Haraam. Food related issues is the basis
of Halal and Haram to the majority of people. However, Allah SWT in the above
ayah has mentioned not to go near the tree. Therefore, the conclusion is that
Halal and Haram is not about food only. It
is about obedience and submission to Allah SWT.
