Someone kindly explain how to tell the difference between this translation and "this is good food."

Because in this sentence food is definite (as indicated by the ال). "this is good food" would be written the same but with food being indefinite (with out the ال).

What is the difference between using:

  • الْأَكْل
  • اَلْأَكْل

Well, it is not accepted and rightly so. "This is good food" would be "هٰذا أَكْلٌ طَيِّبٌ".
