I was having a discussion with some family about organic maple syrup vs. Aunt Jemima’s syrup and it then lead to obesity.  I then posted on Facebook “Obesity is a choice” which spawned a great discussion.  I was then inspired to research and learn more about food, nutrition, diet and it’s relation to Islam and the Prophetic tradition.

This khutbah is part of a series of sermons that I plan on giving on this topic.  In the end, inshaAllah, I would like to publish my findings.  I believe that Islam has a different solution to many of the health problems we face in America.

Hope you guys enjoy it inshaAllah! Feedback whether positive or negative most welcome.

Update: Part two is here.
