“Then eat of what Allah has provided for you [which is] lawful and good. And be grateful for the favour of Allah, if it is [indeed] Him that you worship” (16:114)

Physical nourishment is paramount to our well-being and ability to survive, but we often overlook the spiritual consequences of what we actually consume on a daily basis. With the food industry becoming increasingly commercialised and less about what is wholesome and good for the human, it is more important today than ever before to understand the wide ranging effects of what enters our bodies. In what promises to be a truly captivating talk, Shaykh Yahya Rhodus will provide Islamic insights into this contemporary issue that affects all of us, in order that we are able to have a deeper appreciation with regards to the spirituality and ethics of food.

Shaykh Yahya Rhodus was born in Kansas City, Missouri. At the age of 19, he embraced Islam in Santa Clara, California. He travels regularly teaching, lecturing, and conducting weekend seminars with institutes such as the Deen Intensive Foundation. Currently studying his PHD in Theology at Cambridge, Shaykh Yahyha Rhodus is one of most prominent and prolific Islamic scholars in the West.
