Question: I order an egg Roll. But when I ate it I feel some meat in it. I ask the food store what was in it he said pork. Now what shall I do?


If you ate the egg roll containing pork mistakenly, you simply need to ask forgiveness of Allah while resolving to be careful next time not to repeat the mistake.
Allah orders us to supplicate:
“Allah does not compel a soul to do what is beyond its ability: one gets what one has earned and is responsible for what one deserves. Our Lord, do not punish us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, do not charge us with a burden like that which You laid upon those before us, our Lord, and do not impose on us what we cannot bear. And pardon us. And forgive us. And have mercy on us. You are our Protector, so help us against the disbelieving people.” (Qur’an: 2: 286).
And the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Allah has lifted from my community punishments for sins they have fallen into unwittingly due to ignorance or forgetfulness.” (Reported by Ibn Hibban on the authority of Abd Allah b. Abbas).
