    Are we eating Pork?

    Dr. M. Amjad Khan

    In nearly all the western countries including Europe, the primary choice for meat is pig. There are a lot of farms in these countries to breed this animal. In France alone, Pig Farms account for more than 42,000. Pigs have the highest quantity of fat in their body than any other animal. The following report by a medical practitioner reveals the extent to which pig fat might be unknowingly consumed by Muslims throughout the world.


    One of my friends, Shaikh Sahib works in Pegal, France, in the Department of Food. His work is to register all makes of goods, foods and medicines. Whenever any company is putting something in the market, its ingredients have to be approved by the Department of Food, France, and as Shaikh Sahib works in the Laboratory Quality Control, he knows about the ingredients. Many of these ingredients contain scientific names, but some have mathematical names, like E-904, E-141. At first, when Shaikh Sahib came across them, he was curious and asked his Department Incharge, who was a French, and he replied, "Just do your job. Don't ask questions." This aroused suspicion in Shaikh Sahib's mind and he started looking-up for them in the files. What he found was enough to astonish any Muslim in the world. In nearly all the western countries including Europe, the primary choice for meat is pig. There are a lot of farms in these countries to breed this animal. In France alone, Pig Farms account for more than 42,000. Pigs have the highest quantity of fat in their body than any other animal. But Europeans and Americans try to avoid fats. Thus, where does the fat from these pigs go? All pigs are cut in slaughter houses under the control of the department of food and it was the headache of the department of food to dispose of the fat removed from these pigs. Formally, it was burnt (about 60 years ago). Then they thought of utilizing it. First, they experimented it in the making of soaps and it worked. Then, a full network was formed and this fat was chemically processed, packed and marketed, while the other manufacturing companies bought it. In the meantime, all European States made it a rule that every Food, Medical and Personal Hygiene product should have the ingredients listed on it's cover. So, this ingredient was listed as pig fat. Those who are living in Europe for the past 40 years know about this. But, these products came under a ban by the Islamic countries at that time, which resulted in a trade deficit. Going back in time, if you are somehow related to South East Asia, you might know about the provoking factors of the 1857 Civil War. At that time, rifle bullets were made in Europe and transported to the sub-continent through the sea. It took months to reach there and the gunpowder in it was ruined due to the exposure to sea. Then, they got the idea of coating the bullets with fat, which was pig fat. The fat layer had to be scratched by teeth before using them. when the word spread, the soldiers, mostly Muslim and some vegetarians, refused to fight. This eventually lead to the Civil War. The Europeans recognized this fact, and instead of writing 'pig fat', they started writing 'animal fat'. All those living in Europe since 1970's know this fact. When the companies were asked by authorities from the Muslim countries, what animal fat is it, they were told it was cow and sheep fat. Here again a question arose, if it was cow or sheep fat, still it is haram to Muslims, as these animal were not slaughtered as per the Islamic law. Thus, they were again banned. Now, these multinational companies were again facing a severe drought of money as 75% of their income comes from selling their goods to Muslim Countries, and these earn billions of Dollars of profit from their exports to the Muslim world.

    Finally they decided to start a coding language, so that only their Departments of Food Administration should know what they are using, and the common man is left lurking in the dark. Thus, they started E-Codes. These E-Ingredients are present in a majority of products of multinational firms including, but not limited to - tooth paste, shaving cream, chewing gum, chocolate, sweets, biscuits, corn flakes, toffees, canned foods, fruit tins, and some medications like multi-vitamins. Since these goods are being used in all Muslim countries indiscrimately, our society is facing problems like shamelessness, rudeness and sexual promiscuity.


    So I request all Muslims to check the ingredients of the items of daily use and match it with the following list of E-Codes. If any of the ingredients listed below is found, try to avoid it, as it has got pig fat.=20
    E100, E110, E120, E 140, E141, E153, E210, E213, E214, E216, E234, E252, E270, E280, E325, E326, E327, E334, E335, E336, E337, E422, E430, E431, E432, E433, E434, E435, E436, E440, E470, E471, E472, E473, E474, E475, E476, E477, E478, E481, E482, E483, E491, E492, E493, E494, E495, E542, E570, E572, E631, E635, E904.


    It is the responsibility of each and every Muslim to follow the Islamic path and also keep his fellow followers informed of anything that he comes across. May Allah help us lead a halal life.

    Re: Are we eating Pork?

    Very true bro.. As our parents say, that there never was an ingreidient lable on any kind of food years back (in the UK), so loads of muslim probably ate alot of haraam foods, they tried not to. We at this present time should be lucky to have these ingredient lable's and adhere to it. (Every household should have an updaated muslim food guide, for those in the UK).

    May Allah save us from Haraam foods.

    Re: Are we eating Pork?



    Wonderful post, and I feel that I should share this verse in the Quran because it directly prohibits muslims from eating pork.


    Oh ye people! Eat of what is on earth, lawful and good. If there is any restriction on you from Allah, subhaana wa ta´aala, that is – do not eat the dead animals (Maytatah), avoid the blood and the flesh of swine (pork), and do not eat any such thing on which someone´s else name has been pronounced except the name of Allah, subhaana wa ta´aala. Yet, if someone is in the situation of helplessness and he/she eats any of these things without that he/she has the intention to break the Law or exceeds the limits of necessity, then there is no sin on him/her, Allah, subhaana wa ta´aala, is Oft-Forgiving and Loving” (The Holy Quran, II: 172, 173).

    Why is pork forbidden?

    WHY IS PORK FORBIDDEN IN ISLAM?


    Bob: Tell me why is it that a Muslim is very particular about the words Halaal and Haraam; what do they mean?


    Yunus: That which is permissible is termed Halaal and that which i not permissible is termed Haraam and it is the Quran which draws the distinction between the two.


    Bob: Can you give me an example?


    "Yunus: Yes, 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. "


    "Bob: 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.

    Yunus: Now I think that you'll appreciate the special prescribed method of animal slaughter in Islam.


    Bob: What do you mean?

    "Yunus: 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.



    "Bob: I see, this causes the death of the animal by a total loss of blood from the! body, rather than an injury to any vital organ. "


    "Yunus: Yes, 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 dietitians realize such a thing.



    "Bob: 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.

    "Yunus: Actually, apart from the Quran prohibiting the consumption of pork,bacon (pig flesh); in fact the Bible too in Leviticus chapter 11, verse 8, regarding swine it says, ""of their flesh (of the swine another name for pig)shall you not eat, and of their carcass you shall not touch; they are " unclean to you."" " 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 reasons that if the pig was
    to be slaughtered and fit for human consumption the Creator would have provided it with a neck.

    " Nonetheless, 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.


    Bob: The medical science finds that there is a risk for various diseases as the pig is found to be a host for many parasites and potential diseases.

    "Yunus: 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.


    I hope you benefited and may Allah guide us all...Ameen..

    I cannot find anywhere where it says a pig doesn't have a neck?
    If i indeed doesn't have a neck, what about fish do they have necks?

    with regards to fish it is a differnt matter - they are not slaughtered as they die when taken out of the water....they suffocate, not get slaughtered

    pig - "Why has Allah forbidden eating Pork?"

    ^^^ please show me where the neck is and where u would make the incision - there is no defined neck! as the article states.

    Re: Why is pork forbidden?

    I would say the neck is between the top of the front feet and the chin, pretty much where all necks are.

    I dont think you can clearly define the neck of the pig. It is not as distinguishable as other animals.

    Re: Why is pork forbidden?



    Question: Why is pork forbidden?

    Answer: Because Allah Ta-'aalaa decreed it as so (e.g. in al-Qur-aan 5:4, "Forbidden to you for (food) are: dead meat, blood and the flesh of the pig and that which has been invoked the name other than Allah.")

    For a Muslim, that is sufficient a reason. And no question about it... (although I know the opening of this thread is aimed at non-Muslims).

    Re: Why is pork forbidden?

    Greetings,

    I eat pork, bacon and ham all the time and I've never noticed any ill effects.

    Also, if eating meat from an animal that hasn't been slaughtered in a halaal way is so injurious to health, howcome Westerners in general don't notice ill effects resulting from this either?

    Peace

    A pig is a filthy animal. It rolls around in its own muck and smells like an exploding fart factory.

    From all the derogatory clichés you hear about pigs, you'd think these animals are lazy, dirty, gluttonous, and messy. Not surprisingly, much of what we believe about pigs is actually untrue.
