    Re: How are Muslims encouraged to treat pigs?

    I found this:

    March 11, 2017
    I know eating pork is prohibited in Islam. What should be our attitude towards pigs as animals? Should we avoid seeing them in zoos/farms, watching documentaries about them, playing with toy pig figures, or watching animated shows which feature pigs?


    Pigs, like all other animals, are creations of God. We are not supposed to treat them in any manner different than other animals. The only thing that Islam explicitly teaches is that pigs are prohibited to eat and that their saliva/sweat is impure and must be washed off after touching them.

    There are no other instructions from God or the Prophet Muhammad which teach us to treat pigs differently than other animals. It is neither prohibited to look at them, touch them, or study them.

    It may be argued that developing a dislike for pigs can have a beneficial psychological effect on Muslims and help to ensure that they maintain the Islamic rulings concerning the prohibition of eating pigs and their impurity. However, this point is open to discussion and hatred for pigs may have negative consequences on the psychology of Muslims as well.

    The teachings of Islam can fail under no circumstances. With all our systems of culture and civilization, we can not go beyond Islam and, as a matter of fact, no human mind can go beyond the Qur'an.

    They have vital organs which are very similar to those of humans so they do often get used as spare parts, there used to be an old saying about people wearing skins of sheep over hearts of wolves, but it turns out that wolves hearts don't work properly in humans.

    But that's a subject of fiqh and Allah knows if it would be worth discussing deeper here.

    Apparently 2,000 of them were killed and used to save humans last time in a different way.

    Hmmmmm, the term: "we be legion" from a "large group" of evil spirits transferred to pigs raises questions about sexual preferences too.

    Re: How are Muslims encouraged to treat pigs?

    Pigs like the cute little pink animals that go oink? Or pigs.. as in humans who over consume, waste food and litter?

    Which do we treat in a nicer way? I think the ones that go oink, who haven't done anything wrong.

    Re: How are Muslims encouraged to treat pigs?

    Pigs are disgusting, playing in their filth - they are very filthy animals. More so than any other.

    Last year before Eid-ul-Azha, we had a goat for few days and i loved it. One of the habits i noticed it had SubhanAllah was it would rub the ground where it would sit or lay down with its feet then and only then would it sit. Without forgetting, without error, it would do this every time i would make it stand then when it would go sit.
