Abstract

The purpose of this study is to elucidate the most important of damages caused by food industry and how people should behave toward them. It poses the following problem: What factors contributed to spread of food industry? What is the role of the government’s legislations, jurisprudential councils and experts in raising the populations’ awareness and preventing them from its hazards? In this research, an inductive approach is used to examine the damages of certain foods on health, and an analytical approach to evaluate these fears and how to avoid them by sensitizing, correcting concepts and reconsidering the positions of legislation and fatwa about these products. It seeks to indicate the most the most significant damages caused by food additives, genetic engineering, excessive use of pesticides and hormones as well as modified cattle food, and to to show the gaps in the following fields: • Legislative: lack of legal cover, abuse and absence of rigor in application. • Scientific: the existence of fatwas that justify the facts. • Practical: the inability of Muslims to produce their own wholesome food, and the indifference of experts towards identifying these damages and sensitizing the population, which led to the spread of ignorance and apathy. The research has led to the following conclusions: - Islam orders us to eat wholesome food and forbids anything that harms the body, the mind or religion. - Many bad eating habits are due to ignorance and indifference, and certain‘fatwas help to alleviate the gravity of the situation and to justify the reality of things.
