f:884 -    Eating overnight food that smells
Country : Siddipet,
Name : Muhammad Faizan
Question:     Sometimes, we have to eat the food that has been left out overnight.  Sometimes the food smells.  Can we eat that kind of food?
............................................................................
Answer:     If there is only a slight smell in the food, then eating it is permissible.  If the food really stinks and it has changed considerably, then the food has become unclean and eating it is impermissible.  As given in Fatawa A’alamgiri, Vol. 5, Pg. No. 339.


And Allah The Most Merciful and The Most Beneficent knows best.
