Eating restaurant foods

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: It is common that for a person to achieve taqwa and progress on the pathway towards Allah Ta’ala, a person is advised to stay away from eating ‘out’ food. My question is, which aspect about “eating out food” makes it doubtful and should keep us away from it.


A: In the preparation of the food that is prepared in restaurants and shops the same level of caution and care is not exercised as compared to the food prepared in the home.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
