Unlawfully Earned Food Fattens for Hell

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “That flesh is more deserving of Hell-Fire which has grown from unlawful food.” [Minhaaj ul-Abideen by Imaam Ghazali]

Once Abu Bakr (radi Allahu anhu) drank a little milk given by his female slave and asked her about it. She said, “I prophesied to a people who gave it to me for that.” So he thrust the fronts of his fingers into his throat and vomited in such a way that his life was in danger. Then he said, “O Allah, I pray to You for forgiveness of what remains attached to my throat and to my stool.”

In another narration it is related that when the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) was informed of it, he said, “Don’t you know that Abu Bakr does not allow anything to his belly except lawful food?” [Ihya Ulum Id-Din by Imam Ghazali]
