A disagreement has taken place regarding using nutmeg in cooking. One group says that since a little bit of nutmeg is not intoxicating and that cake that it is being used in will not ever be intoxicating, no matter how much is eaten, that it is allowed to be used.

My question is: my wife and I are Muslims and we try to eat halaal meat as much as possible. But my mother is not Muslim and she buys meat from stores that do not sell halaal meat and cooks it. Is it haraam to eat the meat that she cooks for us?? Please note that she does that with a good intention. Is there any harm in refusing to eat the food she offers to us? What is the ruling on that? May Allah reward you with good.

It is enough for the Son of Adam to eat a fe ...
