The Prophet (s.a.w.) said: “That which is lawful (halal) is clear and that which is unlawful (haram) is clear and between the two of them are ambiguous matters (mashbuh) about which not many people are knowledgeable. Thus, he who avoids these doubtful matters certainly clears himself in regard to his religion and his honour. But he who falls into the doubtful matters falls into that which is unlawful, like the shepherd who pastures around a sanctuary, all but grazing there in….” (Bukhari)

 The above Hadith tells us that the completely permissible (halal) is clear. There is no confusion in it. Similarly, the completely prohibited (haram) is clear. However, between these two matters are matters about which it is difficult for many people to distinguish between the permissible and the prohibited. As for those who are firmly grounded in knowledge, there is no confusion for them and they can easily distinguish between the two.
