The study deals with foods processed with nanotechnology, which is one of the catastrophes that lack a statement of the position of Islamic law. Nano-modified foods are foods in which the arrangement of the atoms and nanometric molecules that make them up were controlled by nanotechnology to obtain modern foods with exact specifications. The researcher relied in this study on the inductive method. The descriptive analytical method was used to prepare a jurisprudential study that formulates jurisprudential rulings for each specific incident in the food crisis with nanotechnology in accordance with the principles of the general Sharia in order to acknowledge its purposes, its universal rules, and its comprehensive controls, which contribute to alleviating embarrassment and bringing significant interests, repelling corruption, and achieving the lofty goals of Islamic law. The study was concluded with some results among which are: that nano-modified foods are no longer natural foods due to the change in their innate reality as they are considered an alien to the natural food chain. Because of this paradox, the jurist cannot implement all the provisions of legal foods on them, and that leaves the use of nano-modified foods as foods or medicines that should depend on the jurisprudential consideration of the extent of the negative effects that these foods lead to, the extent of their preponderance over the benefits according to the balance of Sharia in terms of blocking excuses, and that pushing away is a priority to pushing up.
