Ask an Alim

The description on food packaging contains shirk, is it permissible to consume the food inside?


Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

I bought some green tea and was reading the back of the box. On the back it says ‘a tea worthy of worship belongs in a tea temple’. I didn’t know this was written on the box before buying it and only realised once I got home. Is it permissible for me to consume this green tea or should I get rid of it due to the statement written on the back?

JazakAllahu Khairan


Wa alaykum salaam wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh

Jazaakumullah for your concern.

There is no issue with consuming this tea.
