SHAYKH SALEH AL-FAWZAN’S FATWA ON ‘ALL-YOU-CAN EAT’ BUFFETS FROM AN ETHICAL PERSPECTIVE*
by: MOHAMMED FARID ALI

Food is one of the basic needs of people, but the question arises: is it the food which people love, or their eating habits they developed through time? The mixed-reaction of people on social media, when Shaykh Saleh al-Fawzan’s fatwa concerning buffet dining came on Al Arabiyah (13 March, 2014)[1] shows that eating habits have become a matter of great sensitivity. Any type of restriction or limitation to one’s eating habit is tantamount to someone infringing on one’s personal choices.
