Is Eating Meat Allowed In Islam a Brief Study?


Does ABRAHAMIC RELIGIONS ENCOURAGE SLAUGHTERING OF ANIMALS ?

You may have read my blogs and websites on vegetarianism. Muslims, Christians and Jews advocate the slaughtering of animals and eating its flesh while I condemn slaughtering of animals or eating its flesh. only a few people from the semiotic (Abrahamic) religions would favour me for what I write and preach; I even have nothing against such people. Ultimately, all folks need to buy our karma or deeds, sometime, somewhere, and somehow during this world and therefore the world hereafter. But it's my duty to allow you to know the explanations why I preach vegetarianism, why i'm against slaughtering or eating of animal flesh, it's going to be a bird, a four legged animals, fish or any quite eggs. Even honey and undue use of milk is avoided by me. allow us to for instance , take Islam, where every household sacrifice animals during Eid-al-Adha:


THE PROPHET OF ISLAM HIMSELF WAS A VEGETARIAN.

Islam was introduced to us by our Holy Prophet Mohammed (peace will always be upon him). He was a hard-core vegetarian. Even young children who read the life history of the Prophet knows, when the Holy Prophet migrated from Mecca to Medina, he did this under great hardship for several days through the dessert and therefore the jungles and on the way he lived on cooked leaves. He never slaughtered any animals during this transit period. He cautioned everyone that meat of animals are intoxicating like wine and also told his followers that they ought to not turn their stomach into a grave of dead animals. He even pardoned his rivals at Mecca on return from Medina, an example of ahimsa.


OFFICIAL COLOUR OF ISLAM IS GREEN,SYMBOL OF VEGETARIANISM.

Islam started as a faith giving equal right to the animals and every one living beings. Islam is vocal in animal rights throughout the Holy Quran. this is often why the color of Islam is green (colour of vegetarianism). Please read 6:38. Translation by Mohsin Khan: “There isn't a moving (living) creature on earth, or a bird that flies with its two wings, but are communities such as you . we've neglected nothing within the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered”.


ARABS WANTED ISLAM TO BE NON-VEGETARIAN RELIGION

As I said Islam started as a vegetarian religion, but Arabs were hard-core meat eaters and will not refrain themselves from eating meat of any kind. Many of the Arabs were reluctant to convert to Islam. Many, who did convert, didn't follow Islam religiously and showed resentment against living on vegetarian diet. To motivate them, their request was honoured, and hence the sura 5:1 was revealed. Please read 5:1. Translation by Shakir:“O you who believe! fulfil the obligations. The cattle quadrupeds are allowed to you except that which is recited to you, not violating the prohibition against game(hunting) once you are entering upon the performance of the pilgrimage; surely Allah orders what He desires”. the many a part of this surah is, it talks about making cattle lawful for Muslims. It doesn't say that rice, potato or vegetables are made lawful or allowed to Muslims, which clearly means in earlier times Islam didn't encourage the eating of animal flesh, only later it had been allowed to please the followers. additionally , the surah begins with a pre-condition for Muslims to fulfil their obligations, meaning following the Islamic laws strictly. Therefore, only those that say their five times prayer perform Hajj and offer Zakat and fitra could utilize this concession to Muslims.


SURA AR-RAHMAN IS SILENT ON MEAT AS GIFTED FOOD FROM ALLAH.

Finally, Allah, in his Holy Quran, from cover to hide , has only shown us the positive side of all gifts on this earth to be employed by mankind. In surah Ar-Rahman(55) or in surah (5) Al-Maidah, Allah has nowhere told the Muslims flesh of animals are healthy and wholesome. actually Allah has never mentioned about the flesh of animals as food in Sura Rahman(55), chapter connected with all the gifts Allah has bestowed upon we citizenry .


TODAY MUSLIMS ARE KILLING one another .

The bad effect of eating meat is clearly showing upon the Muslim world. Brothers are killing brothers everywhere the planet . there's an utter chaos and political upheaval all the time. Children, females and students are being kidnapped. Anger, violence, war and resentment among different sects are growing rapidly worldwide. These are signs of disrespect to living beings which stems from slaughtering harmless and innocent beings. Eating meat may be a crime alright but slaughtering animals year after year within the presence of little kids is different.

ISLAM SHOULD REVERT BACK TO VEGETARIANISM.

It is time Muslims consider being more loving and merciful towards animals and switch vegetarians. Even milk should be curtailed in our diet because it is supposed for the calves. we will milk the cows and buffaloes only after the calves had their belly full. Muslims should also avoid the consumption of honey, which the honey bee collects to sustain them during the winter seasons. of these acts and omissions won't only get us blessings, but also will show Muslims as chivalrous, compassionate, and merciful.
