So don't eat my dog.

I once say a bull ox humping a fencepost. Never seen a pig do that.

So don't eat beef.

So don't eat mosquitos.

Now if I can only figure out how to form a religion based on my idea of not eating dogs, beef and mosquitos...

It might have something to do with this:

Surah 5:60

Say: Shall I point out to you something much worse than this, (as judged) by the treatment it received from Allah. those who incurred the curse of Allah and His wrath, those of whom some He transformed into apes and swine, those who worshipped evil;- these are (many times) worse in rank, and far more astray from the even path!

Al-Bukhari

Narrated Abu 'Amir or Abu Malik Al-Ash'ari: that he heard the Prophet saying, "From among my followers there will be some people who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk, the drinking of alcoholic drinks and the use of musical instruments, as lawful. And there will be some people who will stay near the side of a mountain and in the evening their shepherd will come to them with their sheep and ask them for something, but they will say to him, 'Return to us tomorrow.' Allah will destroy them during the night and will let the mountain fall on them, and He will transform the rest of them into monkeys and pigs and they will remain so till the Day of Resurrection." (Book #69, Hadith #494v)

I say we tax all religious organizations up the yahoo, and use that money to fund real, effective and mandatory science education. To read what people believe in this thread is pathetic. Ancient mythologies and fairy tales dictating how some in modern times live, down to even what they eat..it's all craziness. <chews on some mythological evil entity's meat strips>

Hi , I noticed most of the replies are not correct.

1. To make it short. As a human pork is edible.
2. As a muslim pork is edible too.
3. A muslim can eat pork on purpose, accidentally or when emergencies.
4. When eating pork on purpose is said to be a sin and prayers wont be accepted by god in 40 days
and if that guy dies within the 40 days he died not a muslim...Thats all.
5. Islam is very lenien. Its the bastard fanatics who spoiled the islam religion.

just wondering if anyone knew the roots of this islamic hatred and fear of piggys
Just another silly superstition from times of ignorance and fear. The simplistic "that's the way we've always done it" of a failure to learn and grow.

However, I'll be smoking some mighty fine baby back pork ribs on my smoker for the 4th

People seem to make things too complex. We do not eat pork for the simple reason, because we are forbidden to eat it. No other reason is needed. Pork could be the most delicious and healthiest of meats, we still could not eat it as it is forbidden for us to.

Now why did Allaah(swt) forbid it to us? some possible reasons:

It is a form of sacrifice on our part to give up something.

It is an unhealthy meat.

A pig can not be slaughted humanely in a halal manner. It takes them too long to die, it is almost impossible to sever both carotid arteries with a single fast cut, the pig feels too much pain. because it takes to long to kill them.

Pigs are extremely intelligent, and are aware they are being slaughtered.

The reason could be any one of those, all of them or something different. It makes no difference, the only fact we need know with our limited knowledge is it is forbidden.

On a side note, I gave up eating pork long before I accepted Islam. At one time I actually raised them. Slaughtering them became too traumatic for me I found them to be too intelligent and saw the terror in their eyes as they were led to slaughter. It was brutal and almost comparable with killing a child. We don't require pigs, so why kill such a wondrous creature.

There is nothing irrational about it. The reasons have been give here. I am not Muslim, but I also do not consume pork for religious reasons (which are intertwined with health).
