pork is sin and sickness...why? the answer..

      There  is a widespread misconception that  Muslims  obtains 
from  eating pork because pig is sacred and is worshipped as  God 
in  Islam.  It  is  inconceivable that  there  are  people  whose 
mentality could go down to such a dismal low as to entertain  or 
fabricate repulsive idea such as this. No intelligent, refined and
self-respecting  person would ever imagine himself deifying  pig, 
an  animal  which  lives on offal  and  pigsty.  This  pernicious 
misconception  is the product either of the malicious  intent  to 
malign    Islam   and   the   Muslims   in    general;    abysmal 
ignorance; whimsical  intent; or utter disregard or  violation  of 
the Biblical prohibition. Muslims' abstention from pork eating is 
in adherence to the Qur'anic Law which states:
           " Forbidden to you for (food) are: dead meat,
            blood and the flesh of the swine and that
            which hath been invoked the name other than
            Allah. "
                           Holy Qur'an 5:4
Such prohibition is also found in the Bible:
          " The pig also because it is a splitter of the
           hoof but there is no cud. It is unclean for
           you. None of their flesh must you eat and carcass
           you must not touch. "
                                Deuteronomy 14:8 ( Bible)
    Islam ( an  Arabic  word  which means submission to the  will
of  the Almighty God) has laid down the foundation for  the  best 
approach  in keeping good health. In the  Holy   Qur'an (The  Last 
Testament ) God exhorts the believers to select the best food and 
to stay away from any harmful food to maintain good health:
          " Let him find out which is the best food
           ( to be had ) ... Eat of the best foods We
           have provided for you . "
                          ( Holy Qur'an 18:19;7:160 )        
   The main purpose of a True Religion  must be to build an ideal 
community  in    this world ; a  religion  that  promotes  moral, 
political and economic well; social harmony and peace, as  well  as
good health of its believers or followers.  
    Health  means the physical and mental well-being  and freedom 
from  diseases  and pain.There are several passages in the Bible,
articulating  that because of sin ( a transgression of the law of 
God) God afflicted  human beings with  maladies  (Ps.103:3;Exodus 
15:26  and Psalms 107:16-20).Islamic  instructions and  teachings 
espousing  health  consciousness have  scriptural  and  scientific 
      Abstention  from  eating pork is a   measure  to  safeguard 
health. Of   all   the   domestic   animals, pig   is   the    most
avaricious, eating  anything  including human excreta. It  is  the
cradle  of  harmful germs and parasites. Its meat is  carrier  of 
diseases to man, thus making it unfit for human consumption.
     All  types  of animals are lawful to be eaten  whether  those 
living on land or in the water except those animals  specifically 
forbidden  in the Holy Writings revealed by the  Almighty  Creator 
and  the  sayings  of the Prophet with  clear  and  well  defined 
     Pig  belong to the forbidden animals, and not allowed  to  be
eaten  by the believers. Pig eats almost anything dirty and  they 
are very  lazy animals. It is the most avaricious of all domestic  
animals. Amongst all animals, pig is the cradle of harmful germs. 
It's meat serves as  carrier of diseases to mankind. It is   this 
very reason that made it unfit for human consumption.
    The following lists show germs or parasites that are  found 
in   pork  and      some  diseases caused by them. Many of these  
diseases  are contagious while some are proven fatal. This proves 
that the more  science  advances the more Islam is shown correct 
as a religion of God.
   a)  TRICHINELLA  SPIRATIS  ( Trichina worms )
       It is the most dangerous parasite to man ( Rheumatism and 
 muscular  pain). The infected persons shown no symptoms, recover
very slowly some die, some  reduced to permanent invalids. No one
is immune from this disease and there is no cure.
   b)  TAENIA SOLIUM  ( Pork tape worm )
        The  worm  causes malnourishment of the person  leading 
to  anemia, diarrhea, extreme  depression  melancholia    and 
digestive disturbances.  Cysticercoids’ means that larva enter  
the  blood  stream then settle down in one or more of the vital 
organs of the  body,  for  example: brain, liver, lungs or spinal
cord.  They  grow  and   encapsulate, inducing  pressure to the 
system around, resulting  in  dangerous  diseases    (diarrhea,
digestive disorder, anemia, chronic invalidation).
           Examples: Ascaris, which   may  lead   to   digestive
                disturbances, appendicitis, obstructive jaundice.
           Examples:Ancylostomiasis,  which   may    lead    to 
                 anemia, edema, heart   failure   or retarded 
                 growth  ( mental  and  physical), tuberculosis,
                 diarrhea and typhoid.
                 Bleeding, anemia  and  other  syndromes.  If ova
           are  settled in  the  brain  or spinal  cord, paralysis
           and death may occur.
           Infestation  leading  to  bleeding   of   the    lungs 
           ( endenve haemoptysis)
            Digestive   disturbances    leading   to   persistent 
            diarrhea; generalized oedema.
          chlonorchiasis-obstructive jaundice, liver enlargement.
          Causes bronchitis, abscess of the lungs.
          Cause   anemia and digestive disorders.
            Causes acute dysentery and general weakness.
      1. Tuberculosis
      2. Fusiformis necrofurus: causing foot-rot which  is  very 
         difficult to heal.
      3. Salmonella Cholera suis: causing cholera
      4. Paratyphoid
      5. Bruceellosis: Acute, sub acute and chronic. It may  lead
         to permanent disabilities.
      6. Swine Erysipelas: causing Erypelas in man.
 Viral Diseases
      1. Small pox: is was a source of infection to man.
      2. Japanese B-encepphalitis: It is the source of infection
      3. Influenza, foot mouth disease, gas tro-enteritis of  the
         new born babies.
Protozoal   Diseases  :  Toxo  plasma  goundii-  It is a very
dangerous diseases.A new born baby of an infected woman may die  
within  few  days  or weeks after delivery. But if he  survives  
he may develop blindness or deafness.In adult chronic exhaustive  
fever with enlarged liver and spleen may occur. Pneumonia,    or  
celebro- spinal meninggitis which may lead to death or  madness.  
The patient may become blind and deaf too.
Fats  In  Pigs: 
                               Pork contains more fats than  other  meats.
Therefore, people  who  are  fond  of  pork are more obese  than 
others.  Cholesterol  is higher  in their blood thus making them 
more  prone  to  asthereosclerosis  cardiovascular accidents and  
sudden  death. 
Other Diseases :  
                               Flesh of the pork  is hard to digest and may
lead  to chronic  digestive disturbances. Pimples, boils, cysts are
common  in   pork   eaters. These are some of the  parasites  and  
diseases  found   in  pork and/ or the skin of pigs and certainly  
there  are  many  more.  There is still no means of killing these 
parasites, in  the  tissues, neither has anyone found a method of 
expelling  them,  even   produced  any specific treatment for the 
 Old Testament
     The Jews and the different Christian sects and denominations 
Believe in the Old Testament. Adherents   of   other   religions 
alleged that the  prohibition  was already superseded by the New 
Testament. This cogent argumentation is inconclusive. No one can 
specifically point  out  that Jesus  Christ  (PBUH)  lifted  the 
prohibition. On the contrary, he upheld it  he declared:
          " Think not that I have come to abolish the law
           and  the prophets: I have come not to abolish
           them but to fulfill them."  (Matthew 5:17 RSV)
     Jesus Christ (PBUH) was obviously referring to the existing 
Law of his time , the Mosaic Law !- in which the Law  prohibiting 
pig as article of food is mentioned. ( Leviticus 11:7-11)
        " As for any beast that is a splitter of the hoof
          but is not a former of the cleft and not a chewer
          of the cud, they are unclean for you. Everyone
          touching them will be unclean. "
                                    Leviticus 11:26
      In addition, the book of Prophet Isaiah said:
          " Who sit in tombs, and spend the night in secret
           places  who  eats  swine's  flesh  and broth of  
           abominable things is in their vessels;... These
           are a smoke  in  my  nostrils, a fire that burns
           all the day. "  ( Isaiah 65:4,5b  RSV)
 The New Testament
        Despite the Biblical injunction prohibiting pork as food, 
still  people  of other religious persuasions insist  on  finding 
ways  and  reasons  to justify their  consumption  of  prohibited 
animals  arguing  that  said  Biblical  prohibition  was  already 
superseded  in  the New Testament when in  certainly, no  one  can
specifically point out that Jesus Christ (PBUH) indeed lifted the 
prohibition. On the contrary, Jesus (PBUH) declared:
          " Think not that I have come to abolish the law
            and the prophets. I have come not to abolish but
            to fulfill them. " ( Matthew 5:17 )
      The fact is, we will find in Mark 5:1-20 that Jesus  (PBUH)
even  permitted the foul spirits (evil spirits) possessing a  man 
to  enter  into  the herb of swine. Since the  flesh  of  pig  is 
unlawful  for  the  Jews, to  eat  and  since  it  is   considered
unclean, (Leviticus 11:7-8) consequently, the Jews are not to  keep
or  raise  them. This Biblical account states that  Jesus  (PBUH) 
punished  the  owners  of  the  swine; destroyed  their   unlawful 
livelihood and at the same time showed that pig is the habitat of 
unclean spirits.
       The  only provision in the New Testament alluded to  their 
argument   is  in  Act  10:10-16.  Without  reading   the   whole 
context, one  would be inclined to interpret it to mean  that  God
abrogated  His  previous command found on  Deuteronomy  14:3-8. An
alleged  apparition  of Peter on Acts 10:11-16  is  alleged  to 
supersede  Deuteronomy 14:3-8, however, nowhere in the Bible  is  it
mentioned  that  Peter actually slaughtered and ate  the  unclean 
animals  he saw in his apparition. The correct interpretation  of 
this apparition was shown to him in Acts 10:25-28. Acts  10:11-16 
therefore, carries   an   allegorical    connotation referring
explicitly  to the Gentile nations or non-Jewish  nations.  Peter 
was  told  not to call the Gentiles common  and  unclean  because 
God's  mercy, blessing and forgiveness also encompasses  the  Non 
Jews and life eternal also awaits the penitent.
      In  the  Bible, Jesus(PBUH) likened to a dog and  pig  those
people whom after receiving divine teaching failed to profit from 
them and abuses them for self-serving purposes:
         " Do not give holy to dogs- they will only turn and
           attack you. Do not throw your pearls in front  of
           pigs-they will only trample them underfoot. "
                             ( Matthew 7:6 NEB) 
 The New Heavens And The New Earth
      The  book  of   Isaiah   66:1-24, is an  oracle  of  the  new
heavens  and  the  new earth  prepared  for the believers. Within  
the context, God condemns  people's practices such as eating   the
flesh of  pigs, reptiles, and rats.
             " Those who sanctify and purify themselves
              to go into the gardens, following one in
              the midst, eating  swine's flesh and the 
              abomination  and  mice, shall come to an 
              end together says the LORD. "
                                 (Isaiah 67:17 RSV)
      Therefore, the  prohibition    on  the  eating  of   unclean
animals  was  not  abrogated  during t he New Testament times. God 
will  still  punish the transgressors in the fire that will never 
quench. This will occur during the new heavens and the new earth.
 Last Testament's Verdict On Prohibition Of Pork
     Islam means" submission to  the  will  and command of God " 
and a person who embraced this religion is called     " Muslim " 
which means " one who accepts and submits himself to the will of 
God. A  Muslim is obliged  to  be clean both spiritually, mentally
and physically. Abstention from eating flesh of swine is one of 
the obligation  a  Muslim  must  observe to attain purity of the 
soul and of the human nature.  The  believers in Islam, sincerely
believe  in  the  Holy  Qur'an  as  the  Word of God, revealed to
Prophet  Muhammad  (PBUH) which says:
         " Allah has forbidden you only what dies of itself
          and blood and the flesh of  swine  and that over 
          which any other name than that of Allah has been
          invoked;  but  whoever  is  driven  to (it), not 
          desiring  nor  exceeding the  limit, then surely
          Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. "  ( 16:115 )
     We  should bear in our mind that the abstention from  eating 
pork  by  the  Muslims is based on hygienic grounds  and  of  the 
cultivation  of purity of character. Pork is not poisonous as  to 
kill  people right on  the spot but latent. It  will  destroys   
slowly.  It is certainly not as nourishing as any other meat  and 
it causes prolonged  sufferings. Pondering on the  wisdom of this 
saying:   "Health is wealth "  will lead you to better  living  and
prosperity. The last Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said: 
             " There are two blessing which many people lose:
              health and the free time for doing good ...The
              stronger believer (in health) is more  blessed
              and  more  beloved  to  Allah  than  the  weak 
              believer. "
     From   what  we  have  read  from  the  Scriptures  of   the 
Christians, scientific findings, Last Testaments (The Holy Qur'an)
and  the saying of the Last Prophet Muhammad (SAW)  about  health 
and the flesh of the swine, we now come now to the conclusion that
eating of swine flesh or  PORK IS SIN AND SICKNESS.  Therefore, we
must  protect ourselves for it is a fact that health is a   trust 
and best  blessing bestowed upon us by Allah.


It is widespread thing to encounter some sorts of illnesses within our life, but the factor is
it really is uncommon to meet the proper treatment as soon as.
Unlike many other medical facilities, the Fayette Chiropractic Center offers walk-in therapy.

years, then only to be rescued 10 years ago by the city's current mayor. And so those who are suffering from high blood pressure should be careful not to have such health problem for long and unchecked. o - Focus on the optometry practice (no ambition to supply a retail eyewear answer).
