  • Actually I think all the three so called scientific points mentioned here are wrong

    1. Uric acid in the blood bio-chemistry
    It is true that blood contains uric acid but then all the organs and the meat also contain uric acid. If you analyse the kidneys of any animal, like sheep or cow, you will see that there is more uric acid in them than in the blood. Since it is permitted to eat the kidneys, the argument that blood is forbidden because of uric acid cannot be true. It is also observed that there are many cultures which drink raw blood as part of their food. The Masai tribe of Kenya for instance drink a lot of cow blood and sports scientists believe it is because of this habit that athletes from Kenya are very good at long distance running. The scientists say that blood is a natural isotonic drink. http://www.maasai-association.org/maasai.html These people are also very fit and healthy.. so if blood is bad they should be sick..

    2. Pigs are forbidden because the meat has too much uric acid
    I did some research on foods that contain Uric acid .. please refer to the table http://www.goutpal.com/915/foods-high-in-uric-acid-a-surprising-myth/ Almost all types of food have uric acid in various concentrations, even vegetarian food and as per the table pig meat (pork muscle) has lesser uric acid than chicken, mutton or fish… interesting isnt it? Also anything high is poisonous not only uric acid, even high vitamin is poisonous. High Uric acid will give you a condition called gout where your joints will pain so it is not possible to get poisoned by uric acid as one would stop eating long before dying because of pain.

    3. Pigs dont have a neck and so it is not possible to cut the jugular vein
    Here is a link - http://oslovet.veths.no/teaching/pig/pigbleed/ There are detailed description and pictures of how to locate the jugular vein in pigs. I also found another site where they have a picture (http://www.all-creatures.org/anex/pig-slaughter-06.html) showing a pig whose neck has been cut and the blood is gushing out. I searched in many places but only religious people are saying that pigs dont have necks.. the scientists are all saying that pigs have necks.

Halaal vs haram

  1. 1. Scientific explanation of halaal vs haram meat
  2. 2. Hi Zafar, Tell me why is it that a Muslim is very particular about the word halal and haraam, what do they mean? Zafar Hmmm..
  3. 3. Can you give me an example. Sure Tom, that which is permissible is termed halaal and that which is not permissible is termed haram and it is the Quran which draws the distinction between the two.
  4. 4. Yess,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. 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.
  5. 5. Now I think that you’ll appreciate the special prescribed method of animal slaughter in Islam.
  6. 6. 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.
  7. 7. What do you mean? Yess,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 dieticians realize such a thing.
  8. 8. I see, this causes the death of the animal by total loss of blood from the body, rather than an injury to any vital organ. 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.
  9. 9. Actually, apart from the Quran prohibiting the consumption of pork, bacon ( pig flesh); in fact the Bible too in Leviticus chapter11, verse 8, regarding swine, it says," of their flesh (of the swine, another name of pig) shall you not eat, and of their carcass you shall not touch; they are unclean to you.
  10. 10. 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 reason that if the pig was to be slaughtered and fit for human consumption the creator would have provided it with a neck. None the less, 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.
  11. 11. 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 medical science finds that there is a risk for various diseases the pig is found to be a host for many parasites and potential diseases.
  12. 12. Hey, really thanks for your explanation, Zafar! No problem. This is my responsibility, Tom.
  13. 13. We don’t know that we don’t have a neck.
  14. 14. <ul><li>Please forward to others. </li></ul><ul><li>It may answer some of their questions especially when the non-muslim ask. </li></ul><ul><li>To waken and kindle enthusiasm is the sure way to teach easily and successfully. </li></ul>
