I used to eat takeaway food until I realised that the cashier touching my food also touches money. English money has animal fat in it, you can’t tell if there hands are wet and when they touch your food the najasat transfer to the food there preparing.

Anything which you are ignorant of its Najast is considered pure, Islam sought to bring us ease not hardship :)

No Muslim should be unaware of it. Consuming haram food ruins your spirituality

It's unusual for a cashier to be handling both money and food, that's unhygienic even by non Muslims. The animal fat is the least of your worries, money often has traces of drugs and human fluids. Go to places that have a designated cook and cashier.

I don't think it is possible to be fully aware of these matters brother, if you take the precaution of presuming Najasat every time you will be succumbing to Waswasa and that will not ruin, but destroy your spirituality.

Nope even those places the cashiers touches the boxes of my food and touch the forks etc, it’s better for Muslims not too eat out I think you also don’t know what kind of ingredients are in your food for example in Sweden a lot of chocolate has whey powder most whey powder is haram unless it stated vegetarian so even if you go to a halal restaurant and have a chocolate cake you could be consuming haram because the owner might have given you a haram type of chocolate.

 

for example and also things like cakes they have eggs and most eggs have blood spots so many people don’t know that you can’t eat things with blood spotted eggs for example.

i know a warehouse where they make bread and naan breads and outside there are huge dead rats everywhere

 

The food we consume must be lawful, even if we eat haram food accidentally no one can say that it doesn’t effect your spirituality

I heard that with people in high spiritual positions (like arifs), they don't eat anything unless they KNOW it's halal. 

I think it's okay if the cashier touches the box and fork, we just won't ask for a fork, and boxes don't taste that good anyway lol. I think the issue lies in them touching the food itself which should have been already packaged by the cook. Some respectful restaurants actually take their gloves off when they use the register so I guess you'd have to order something they'd get sued if they touched like a smoothie and pay attention to the level of sanitation in that particular restaurant.

Most of the restaurants in my area are haram, and off the top of my head I know a couple of "Halal" restaurants that cook halal and haram meats on the same grill.

If a cashier is touching your food (the surfaces that you will be eating, not the wrapper) after handling money, you have way bigger problems to worry about.

Money is one of the most germ-ridden objects out there. No cashier should be handling food for that reason.

Brother/sister Labbayka. I think you have some sort of mental illness or you're in the dangerous process of becoming mentally ill if you continue to go down this path of suspicious/paranoia/obsession.

 

 

 

All you do is Spam these non-concerning matters into the Fiqh section. With the path you're going it's almost like you need a Marja on speed-dial so you can ask obsessive questions which no Normal-functioning human being would give two cents about. I'm not making fun of you and being negative to be negative. I can recognize the signs of most disorders in people especially of religious communities. It sounds like the beginning or the middle cycle. Get help sincerely.
