Why shouldn’t we eat pork? what’s wrong with it? isn’t it as any other meat? so what?

WHY IS PORK  FORBIDDEN IN  ISLAM??

This conversation between Bob and Yunus is a very interesting one. Please read it to the end and see if you are convinced or not!!!!

Bob: Tell me  why is it that a Muslim is very particular about the  words

Halaal and  Haraam; what do they mean?

Yunus:  That  which is permissible is termed Halaal and that which >I not

permissible is  termed Haraam 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 diseases

as 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.

The Islamic Dress Code: a must for all muslim women

The Islamic Dress Code

By Khalid Baig

What would you think of a home that provided no shelter and no privacy? What would you think of a meal that provided no nourishment and no energy? It does not take much to realize that if one were in the business of selling any of these he would go bankrupt very quickly. Yet, amazingly the rules seem to be different when it comes to another basic need: clothing, especially women’s clothing.

Every year fashion centers in Europe and America come up with the latest designs. And what have they designed?

Another way of not covering the body; the dress equivalent of the home that provides no shelter and no privacy.

One might ask, if a person did not want to cover themselves why would they buy anything, least of all expensive fashions, to achieve that? If we think about it, we may see the tension between two forces. All human beings (except for the handful of deviants who call themselves naturalists) have an inborn sense of shame. People of all religions agree on the need to cover themselves in public. Yet we also find a force that promotes nudity. Large segments of humanity are caught between two impulses: to cover or not to cover. Our clothing designs reflect different levels of compromise between these opposing forces.

Why? What is going on?

Science cannot answer the question. It cannot trace the origins of forces that take place deep in our mind. In addition, most of the scientific establishment is still dominated by the followers of Mr. Darwin and Darwinism is a system of belief not science. Their beliefs keep them from dealing honestly with a simple fact: while all other animals have a skin that provides them protection against the elements, human beings don’t. Monkeys can live without clothing, human beings cannot.

The Qur’an answers the question. Our bodies did not develop our skin— so thin and fur free that it requires external covering for protection—because of some unexplained evolutionary accident. Our Creator designed it this way so we will always need clothing. He also put in us the sense of shame that forces us to cover ourselves. On the other hand, the first act of Satan was to cause Adam and Eve to expose themselves: “So by deceit he brought about their fall:

when they tasted of the tree, their shameful parts became manifest to them, and they began to sew together the leaves of the Garden over their bodies.” [Al-A’raf 7:22].

This is the source of the tension we see. Two opposing forces. Good and evil.

With that background we can understand the importance of clothing. “Oh Children of Adam! We have bestowed raiment upon you to cover your shame as well as to be an adornment to you. But the raiment of righteousness—that is the best.” [Al-A’raf 7:26]. The address here is to all humanity, emphasizing thereby the universal human need to cover ourselves properly.

The Qur’an then warns that Satan was not finished after his first attempt: “Oh Children of Adam! Let not Satan seduce you in the same manner as he got your parents out of the Garden, stripping them of their raiment, to expose their shame.” [Al-A’raf 7:27].

Once we realize the nature of the dress issue, it is natural that we should turn to our Creator to seek guidance for the proper dress code. Qur’an and Sunnah have provided ample guidance on the subject which can be summarized in four essential principles.

    1. Our dress must cover our body adequately. Again we cannot determine what is adequate coverage on our own, as any witness to the misery of those who have tried it can readily ascertain. Shar’iah, as always, takes us out of this misery by defining it for us. For men, it is the middle part of the body from navel to knee. For women, it is the entire body except hands and face. These parts must never be exposed to any other person (except in case of genuine need e.g. medical treatment). In addition, the cloth must be neither see-through nor tight fitting.
    1. Our dress should provide adornment. It should provide for decent appearance. Our appearance should not be an eyesore for decent human beings. For men, this extends the coverage requirements to include most of the body. For women, the essential requirement is that their dress should identify them as respectable ladies who would be honored not harassed. Additionally, hijab rules aim at protecting them from the gaze of other men.
    1. Our dress should establish our Islamic identity. At the least it should not identify us as followers of another religion. But, additionally it should positively identify us as Muslims.
    1. The design of our dress must avoid three deadly sins: show off, arrogance, and self indulgence. These are very serious diseases of the heart in their own right that we must avoid at all times. Our garments provide an easy opportunity to nurture them. Hence the need to be extra cautious. One Hadith states “Eat what you feel like and wear what you feel like. But avoid two things: extravagance and arrogance.” [Bukhari]. At the risk of stating the obvious one should be reminded that this Hadith establishes an overriding concern that limits our choices within the realm of what is considered halal. It does not do away with the distinction between halal and haram.As one implication of this general requirement, men are also required not to wear their lower garments below the ankle. (Many well-meaning Muslims today have been persuaded that this is a petty issue. This misgiving can be put to rest in a hurry if we just refer to the Hadith of Jabir bin Sulaym, Radi-Allahu anhu, in Abu Dawood. He asked the Prophet, Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam for some advice when leaving him after his very first meeting. Of the six pieces of advice given him one was: “Never let your lower garment go below the ankles because that is arrogance. And Allah does not like arrogance.” Another was “Never belittle a good deed.”)

Islam has not prescribed a particular dress style, giving us ample room to accommodate our needs, circumstances and tastes. However, these principles are for everyone and forever. Any garment that accommodates these principles will be Islamic dress. This is Islamic formula to dress for success. Eternal success

An important Health Aspects in the Prophet’s “Sunnah”

Sexual Life: making love with your wife

Islam regards the need for sexual relations as natural for adults. If this need is naturally fulfilled within marriage relations, it is then not only a need satisfying practice but it rather merits reward from God.

To the contrary, Islam considers extra-marital practices as punishable practices, causing illnesses and producing feelings of immorality, guilt and sin.

The Prophet actually used to encourage youth to become married early and considered doing sex and making love with one’s legal mate as a piety act! The Prophet said:

And in making love with your mate you will get a reward from God; the companions then said: how is that we satisfy our sexual desire and be rewarded for it?

The Prophet then said: Do you not see that if this desire was satisfied in a prohibited manner, wouldn’t that be sinful? So the reverse is true, a lawful sexual satisfaction is going to rewarded’ [Related by Muslim].

The Prophet also gave advice on how to make love and how to enjoy it:

‘Do not just fall (when making love) onto your wife just like an animal falling onto its partner, but let there be a messenger in between? Companions then asked: What is that messenger? The Prophet then said: Talking, fore playing and kissing’

Another genuine advice by the Prophet [pbuh] that is found now to have a very profound positive effect on women’s psychological and physical health is what we are going to see in this following

Hadith:

‘You must be honest and caring with your wife when making love with her, that if you ejaculated early, you should wait for her till she gets satisfied (reaches her climax) as well’ [Related by AbuYhaala].
