In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. PORK IN ISLAM AND BIBLE AND MEDICAL SCIENCE. Islam clearly forbids the eating of pork. The Bible too prohibits the eating of pork. The prohibition is mentioned in two books: Bible, Leviticus:Chapter 11, Verses 7 and 8. Bible, Deuteronomy:Chapter 14, Verse 8. In Leviticus, the BIBLE says: "And the pig......it is unclean for you. You must not eat their meat or touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you." (Leviticus, 11: 7-8) Below are comments or written made by MUFTI AFZAL HOOSEN ELIAS: The abstention from eating pork is one of the steps Islam has taken to practice hygiene and to attain purity of human nature. Medical reasons are numerous and after reading them one will realise the WISDOM of the DIVINE LAW OF ISLAM. The pig is lazy, indulgent in sex, dislikes the sun, lacks spirit and determination to fight, lacks self discipline in eating and therefore eats even stool. It is the greatest carrier of germs. Eating pork encourages the revival of old ailments, fosters rheumatism and asthma. It also causes baldness and weakening of the memory. Further proof of the wisdom behind the prohibition of pork is that it is a host to the following worms which themselves are carriers of disease:- *** Trichina worms are found in infected pork which causes Trichinosis infection in the muscles. *** Balantidnii cote found in the pig's bowels causes dysentery. *** Faciolipsi Baski found in the pig's small intestines causes persistent diarrhoea. *** Round worms, i.e. the "travelling worm" causes local infestation, pneumonia, suffocation, jaundice and even brain tumours. *** Hookworm causes anaemia, diarrhoea and a typhoid like disease. *** Paragonimus found in the lung of the pig causes bleeding of the lungs (endemic haemoptysis). *** Clonorchis senensis found in the bile passage of the pig's liver causes clonobhiasis - a peculiar enlargement of the liver accompanied by severe jaundice, diarrhoea and emaciation. *** Giganthoryschus gigas found in the pig's intestines causes anaemia and digestive disorders. *** Mega strongylus apsis found in the pig's lungs causes bronchitis and abscess of the lungs. *** Swine erysipelas found on the skin of pigs causes fever and inflammation of the skin. *** Tubercle bacillus causes tuberculosis. *** Taenia solium (pork tapeworm) found in the eggs of infected pigs causes diarhoea, digestive disorders, anaemia and infected person remains in a state of chronic invalidism. *** Trichinalla spirales found in flesh of pig causes trichiasis or tiichinelliasis i.e. acute abdominal pains, diarrhoea, twitching in various muscles, the face becomes puffy, eyelids swell, patient becomes weak and develops asthma and skin rash. *** Varicella causes smallpox. *** Sarcoptes scabies found in the flesh of the pigs causes scabies. *** Fusiformis causes foot-rot. *** Salmonella suipestifer causes cholera. Above are comments/written made by MUFTI AFZAL HOOSEN ELIAS. ALLAH THE MOST KNOWLEDGABLE. ALLAH KNOWS BEST.

The reason for this is medical, but again the qoran was written the year arounf 590 something. and at that time things were a bit different than now, now they go through the meat before it enters the stores, "Sweden" all though I am muslim so I dont eat pork, because the qoras says so.

Hello, The word 'disciple' is NUMEROUS in the Bible. The English dictionary defines a disciple as "a student or a follower". So a disciple of Jesus Christ is a student and follower of Jesus. The DISCIPLES OR THE FOLLOWERS of Jesus. In religion, in general a disciple is an active follower of a leader or teacher. The word 'follower' is suitable only for a leader, teacher and man. That is the followers of the teacher or the followers of the Prophet. The word slaves and servants are suitable and relate to God. That is the servants of God, or the slaves of God. The difference between FOLLOWERS and SLAVES OR SERVANTS. In religion, the word 'followers' are for leader and man. The word Slaves or servants are suitable for God, that is the Servants of God. ABOUT JESUS AS A TEACHER AND A MAN IN THE BIBLE (NEW KING JAMES VERSION): MATTEW 9:10 "Now it happened, as Jesus sat at the table in the house, that behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples." MATTEW 9:11 "And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to his disciples, "Why does your TEACHER EAT with tax collectors and sinners?" ***** Teacher and man need food to eat and survive. ***** God does not need food to survive. ***** Jesus a man and a Prophet need food to survive. ABOUT WINE AND INTOXICATING DRINK IN THE BIBLE (NEW KING JAMES VERSION): ISAIAH 5:22 "Woe to men mighty at drinking wine, Woe to men valiant for mixing intoxicating drink." ***** May be you want to tell others that the Western world like wine and intoxicating drink. Addicted to wine or alcoholic drinks is a disease and a sickness, which could cause serious health problems. ***** Do not betrayed Jesus, he is just a Prophet and a Messenger.

laillah You may want to change your phrase that states that God gave one of his disciples pork to eat you must have meant Jesus who obviously has been placed in your mind as God. Unless it was a typo.

Hello, The scientists have proven about diseases caused by pork or pigs. May be you are still understudied or still living in the year 1700. Please check internet to improve your knowledge. May be you and your members think the pork during the Old Testament is unclean but the pork during the New Testament is clean! So the humans created by God during Adam's times and Moses times are not the same as the humans now! Those who eat pork, but do not get the diseases, may be considered strong and lucky. But how about, who eat pork but got the diseases, facts are accurate than assumption. May be you could make survey travel from one hospital to another hospitals around the world, LOL! Now we could not deny the advance field of Science in Microbiology, Bacteriology and Virology. Scientists have proven pork and pig and diseases they carries. Please check the internet to improve your knowledge. Anyway Muslims do not trust on the Bible whether Old or New Testament, because muslims believe the Gospel now is not original, it has underwent alteration, addition and ommision and corrupted. Just for your interest: ABOUT UNCLEAN FOOD IN THE BIBLE (NEW KING JAMES VERSION): Judges 13:4 "Now therefore, please be careful not to drink wine or similar drink, and not to eat anything unclean." May be you like to tell people that the western world also like to drink wine! And wine is good for them and to get drunk will improve their mental. Please wake up from you sleep! Muslims love Prophet Jesus (Prophet Isa). Do not betrayed Jesus, he is just a messenger, not god or son of god.

the new testament discusses the fact that god gave one of his followers pork to eat... his deciple refused. and jesus said dont call unclean anything that i have made clean. its not what a man eats that makes him unclean but what is in his heart, what comes out of his mouth and the way he behaves. (i appoli9giose i dont have the bible in front of me so i cant find a direct quote. and it has been paraphrased.)
