Assalammualaikum to everyone, Sharing my experiences of life with the non muslims friends i had. Maybe all of us had been asked this question before. I had my non muslim friends asking me, "Jenna, y must u eat halal food only? As long u dont eat pork, its ok. And y cant u eat pork?" I answered with a smile. i give them 3 answers which are based on religion, logic and experience- Religion: I can only eat halal food because it has be slaughtered in the name of ALLAH as HE is our Provider, our Creator. And whatever we do, we have to remember HIM always. Furthermore, in ISLAM; we are teached to have ettiqute at all times. Look at those animal factory that slaughtered or kill animals for consumption- they hanged the animals steamed them in pain (torture) , iron their bodies and removed their skins when the animal are still alive (ive got this research from my friend when he visited the pig factory) but we muslim are civilised and clean and respect animals by doing the slaughtery in the easiest way as possible by slaughtering their neck and that too need to be really professional in slaughtering it so that the animal dont fell TORTURED while dying. Logic answer: The reason y we Muslims slaughter the animals we can eat in the name of ALLAH because in all animals, there are bad toxin in their body and if we dont slaughter them-it will give us a side effect that will destruct our body in years to come like skin diseases. Thats y we slaughtered it so as to remove that toxin until the blood has been removed totally. ( i have this researched by a muslim professional person). Logic: When i was in school majoring the Arts subject, my 3 non muslim friends and me sat down and going to have lunch. One of them ordered pork steak and the rest of us ate something else. I was carrying this food tray and wobbling accidentally my SODA drink fell to my friend pork steak. Everyone was shocked and disgusted by wat happened to the PORK steak as we saw maggots coming out of it. So maybe, the person did not cook it properly or maybe the meat is stale. so she went to order again and i told her y not u cut it and pour soda drink to test so she did and we saw maggots coming out again. Yucks rite! The 4 of us decided to do some test- We went to her big house and asked her mum to prepare 5 trays of Lamb,Beef,Pork,Chicken,Fish and soda drinks, orange juice n liquor. I was with my gloves all the time. We steamed, fried,baked all the meats till it is overcooked and black. They cut it and all of us test putting soda drinks, orange juice and liquor to each piece to see the reaction. Oh me Goodness! Only the Pork has the reaction-maggots came out of the pork and nothing happen to the other meats. So what pig nowadays are clean and only eat wheat but due to the experience i have seen that no matter how overcook or cook the pork is, still there will be maggots coming out from the soda drinks reaction. Yucks! Getting some research from other of my professional friends that some of them had experienced looking at dead bodies from the "fridge mortuary" and saw maggots coming out of the body and they made research that this people are pork eaters. Yucks! Astaghfirulllah halazhim! Getting research from my friends who are muslim doctors - some people that have bad smell (one kind of smell in the world) is because they are pork eater as "we are wat we eat"- most doctors posters main statement) and most of those who have like blackish marks on their back safely to say like minor skin diseases are because they are pork eaters. Astaghfirullah halazhim. This is part of my experience in life. May ALLAH forgives us and bless us with paradise. Amin

asallamoalikum,your personal research & experience r amazing & informative,but mine i have is not with pork but some how people cannot stop eating pork even if u give them all these proofs cuz any thing forbidden in quran naturally has more temptation to try & taste, only if u have Mercy of Allah swt,i was sharing a apt with friends some buy halal meat some just buy regular meat,so every time when they fry regular beef whole apt get filled with smell an pan has some type of sticky blood at bottom which take extra time to wash,but when i fry halah meat smell in the house feel like when u smell BBQ from a far distance an fry pan seem clean accept little oil from fat at the bottom so after my own experience i prefer halal meat 4 my self if i can't find it then i go with fish or vegetables.don't laugh ok

Aslmkm onkoba Being in an environment where you have no muslim friends, it is admirable that you still hold fast to the belief that there is always a perfectly logical and reasonable explanation in Islam. Most would have a tendency to bend because of peer pressure or being a minority in the group. If only non muslims would put aside their prejudices and view Islam logically, they too will be able to find Allah as the Most Generous and Most Merciful. May He guide you with wisdom as you answer the tough questions thrown your way. salams / fatima

Salams sister Jenaa Gosh, this is enlightening news about the pork. Makes me want to **accidently spill my soda** on the pork dishes the next opportunity I get when out dining with my non muslims friends. Nothing like **seeing with the eyes** to prove our point. Otherwise they we will always say we are biased in painting everytinh as a beautiful picture of Islam to them. Jazakallahu khairan fatima

Asslammualaikum onkoba, The reason y i made alot of research is not to argue to non muslims but to make them understand the religion, logic and experience that i have so that they wont have doubts in ISLAM. Alhamdulillah, now u can eventually answer their doubtful questions after reading my blog. I know at times it is definetely hard to explain the reason to y ISLAM cant do alot of things but i always believe that ISLAM has teach us not only to believe in it blindly but to also find out the TRUTH y we are disallowed in certain things. The difference between animals and we humans is that ALLAH gives animals brains but ALLAH not only gives US humans brains; HE also gives us mind to insearch of something. For any queries u have pertaining to unanswered questions, please feel free to ask me-INSYALLAH i will help u. May ALLAH bless us always. amin
