Why We Can't Eat Pork? (For Muslims n Non Muslims)

I got this from friendster.com bulletin board, and I thought it would be worth sharing. It is some explaination about Why the Muslim can't eat Pork or any pig or swine based meat....

Bob: Tell me why is it that a Muslim is very particular about the words Halal and Haram; what do they mean?

Yunus: That which is permissible is termed Halal and that which is not permissible is termed Haram and it is the Quran which draws the distinction between the two.

Bob: Can you give me an example?

Yunus: Yes, Islam has prohibited blood of any type. You will agree that a chemical analysis of blood shows that it contains an abundance of uric acid, a chemical substance which can be injurious to human health.

Bob: You're right about the toxic nature of uric acid, in the human being it is excreted as a waste product and in fact we are told that 98% of the body's uric acid is extracted from the blood by the kidneys and removed through urination.

Yunus: Now I think that you'll appreciate the special prescribed method of animal slaughter in Islam.

Bob: What do you mean?

Yunus: You see, the wielder of the knife, whilst taking the name of the 'Almighty', makes an incision through the jugular veins, leaving all other veins and organs intact.

Bob: I see, this causes the death of the animal by a total loss of blood from the body, rather than an injury to any vital organ.

Yunus: Yes, were the organs, example the heart, the liver, or the brain crippled or damaged, the animal could die immediately and its blood would congeal in its veins and would eventually permeate the flesh. This implies that the animal flesh would be permeated and contaminated with uric acid and therefore very poisonous; only today
did our dietitians realize such a thing.

Bob: Again, while on the topic of food; Why do Muslims condemn the eating of pork or ham or any foods related to pigs or swine.

Yunus: Actually, apart from the Quran prohibiting the consumption of pork, bacon(pig flesh); in fact the Bible too in Leviticus chapter 11, verse 8, regarding swine it says, "of their flesh (of the swine, another name for pig) shall you not eat, and of their carcass you shall not touch; they are unclean to you."

Further, did you know that a pig cannot be slaughtered at the neck for it does not have a neck; that is according to its natural anatomy. A Muslim reasons that if the pig was to be slaughtered and fit for human consumption the Creator would have provided it with a neck.

Nonetheless, all that aside, I am sure you are well informed about the harmful effects of the consumption of pork, in any form, be it pork chops,ham,bacon.

Bob: The medical science finds that there is a risk for various diseaseas the pig is found to be a host for many parasites and potential diseases.

Yunus: Yes, even apart from that, as we talked about uric acid content in the blood, it is important to note that the pig's biochemistry excretes only 2% of its total uric acid content, the remaining 98% remains as an integral part of the body.

Please forward to all your Muslim and Non- muslim friends.. it may answer some of their questions especially when the non-Muslim ask why a Muslim don't eat pork

Well, as for me, I am very aware of pork being unhealthy to the health, besides the very unclean and dirty nature of the animal. But what I am not aware of is, about dogs.. Dogs, as what most people says; man's best friend. It is not that I question God's supreme order, but I am rather curious if anyone has any scientific reasons yet, about this particular prohibition.

Reasons or no reasons, scientific or no scientific, I still beleive solely in Sami'na Wa ata' na (I listen, and I follow).. God knows what's best for His creations.

And who is the real Megan Fox? She is very different than the academy nominee and winning actors we’ve all worked around. She’s as about ungracious a person as you can ever fathom. She shows little interest in the crew members around her. We work to make her look good in every way, but she’s absolutely never appreciative of anyone’s hard work. Never a thank you. All the crewmembers have stopped saying hi to Ms. Princess because she never says hello back. It gets tiring. Many think she just really hates the process of being an actress megan fox naked pictures

According to E!, Megan Fox is “thisclose” to starring in Eminem’s new music video, “Love the Way You Lie,” which is a collaboration with Rihanna for those of you who don’t listen to Eminem. That’s pretty neat, I guess – I haven’t listened to Eminem since “Superman,” and I don’t care much for Rihanna – but guess who else is already going to be in the video? megan fox naked photos
