Watch what you eat

Abu Sa’d as-Sam’aanee said:

When I decided to undertake a journey, I visited our Shaykh, Yoosuf ibn Ayyoob, to bid him farewell.

He supported my decision [to travel], and said:

I advise you not to visit the rulers, and watch what you eat, [so you are certain] it is not haraam.
