SALAAM.

What do you do with the Roti or bread that is left remaining after having a meal? Many people say it's wrong to throw it...what do you suggest? What should we do?

Walayaykumsalaam sister,

My mother has this amazing method whereby she can finely crumble few days old roti and bread and apply water, and then some bread or even cake flour at times and make sweet bread with raisains etc or other intresting stuff, theres so much one can do, like the sisters have suggested feed the pigeons or ducks, let me also tell you that i have seen my sheikh eat bread with mould on it but never let it waste, and when asked why he did such, when fresh was available, he suggested it was something their sheikh did and he continued until he suggested that there was a time when this bread was not available and our predecessors and masters would tie stones to there stomachs.

Walaikum salaam,

Over time you should get into the habbit of only cooking as much that will be consumed so that nothing goes to waste.

Yes, but what about in cases where food is being prepared for soo many people...ie. in a restaurant?

what should the restaurant do with all the leftovers?

At home I could get used to cooking as much that will be consumed that nothing goes to waste but what about the restaurant food? At the end of the day we are humans and can eat only so much.

I guess Brother Irfan's and the other suggestions are good. ??

Alhamdulillahi rabil aAlameen,wa salaatu wa salaamu alaikha Ya RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam wa aAlaikha wa aAshaabaikha Radiyallahu 'Anhum ajmaeen.

Asalaamu alaykhum sister, can I just say, you need to be careful about feeding the birds... through experiance ive noticed our people tend to leave the roti/bread in a pile on the side of a street or on walls etc... the birds may eat, however, usually also feasting on the left overs are mice and rats. They get a free meal.

If you do feed your left over roti/bread to the birds, please ensure that you take the appropriate measures to ensure that it is the birds only eating, as you don't want a infestation of rodants.

BarakAllah fi

but what if you have curry/saalan left over instead, I mean you can't give curries to birds or pigeons, so what should we do to curries?  Do we put them back in the Aandi/Haandi or curry pot or something?

its good to give food to the poor and beggars especially where such people can be seen and approached, but what if you are living in England for example and there are not many poor or beggars on the street, so it does become a little difficult so what should we do in this case with leftover saalan or curries?

salam. once i tried to throe bread to the birds when i was little and the birds never came to eat it. i was only little like 5 yrs ols. but i stil remember cuz i was upset. just remember folks some bords are quite choosie, some may not like the type of bread e.g roti, or may be health conscious and go for wholemeal bread. lol. also someone told me that the pigeons in britain are already fat and obese  because of the amount of food that people already waste. asthagfurallah.

Aslamalikum sister i think the best thing to do is feed the left over to the birds...in that way you wont get gunnah for throwing food away but will gain swab for feeding it to the birds....

Assalaam Alaikum!

I'm very surprised that nobody has mentioned giving the excess food to the neighbours,i believe there would be much sawaab in it.

I guess people only give food to neighbours in ramazan sharif, becuase they know that get saawab and other times of the year its better to keep it home and let it waste but lets not give it to the neighbours, hence forgetting the sawwaab of not wasteing food.

In reference to the question about restaurants' leftovers, in the case of Pret A Manger (a sandwich food chain in the U.K.) they give all leftovers each day to homeless people.
