Q: Leaving things open at night shouldn’t be consumed the next day. How authentic and what happens to the food that was left open? Should it just be wasted (thrown away) like sugar or milk etc? If the kids kept it open, should it be thrown.
A: Food articles and utensils should not be left open. But that does not mean that these articles cannot be consumed.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
