My name is Reynolda. And I'm a Christian.
Like, cause since a long time I've been having conflicts with myself. The questions that I would like to ask today are mostly like maybe assumptions or like, things where I've been influenced from people. Like my first question. It's about pig.
Basically, I would like to know, what exactly is the meaning of haram? Like, is for us religion like Islam?
It won't accuse anyone of being wrong. Yeah.
It wouldn't say something to be so wrong. Why is pig haram because I had attended a Christian convention. And over there, it was told, like there was this priest who was saying that why is Boko Haram and Islam he gave an example saying that
like, the same rubbish, like, it was used as manual for the plants, the plants, like supposing it was a mango tree mango tree, the mango grew, the roots had absorbed the same nutrients, the same rubbish, it grew into mango, and we consume it. So how is it different from consuming it in pork and the mango?
So that was the question that what is the meaning of haram? And why is pork haram in Islam? And to give the example of the priest, a Christian priest who said that many are, which is dirt and filth is used by the tree, the tree grows, and then mango gums and we eat mango.
Trying to say that even if we the filth of the OIC, it may be good for someone else may not be good for others that for the image to say. So in Islam at Santa Maria Christian read aloud.
Sister. First I'll tell you the meaning of haram means prohibited means forbidden haram in Islam means prohibited it means forbidden.
I will answer your question of the priests first and then I'll come to the real reason why pork is haram. The priests give the example that man you're supposed to be dirt and filth is healthy for the tree. And when the tree grows, it gives mango and we eat the mango.
Trying to say that maybe it's haram for Muslims, but good for Christians.
If you compare the menu or which filled for the human beings, it may be good for the plants, because plants and human beings are two different beings than the same. They're different.
But in Islam and Christianity, the human beings are the same, you may follow different religions. But what is good for one human being as a general thing is good for the other human being unless he has certain problems.
For example, if you have diabetes, then sugar may not be good for him. But normally sugar is good, it gives you energy unless he has some problem, then
it may not be good for him. But as far as general human beings are concerned, the rule for all the human being what is good and bad is the same. So you can use the example of manual is good for some and not good for other what we have to see. We have to go to the guide. What does the guide tell us? And it will try and analyze what does the guide tell us?
The guide in Christianity, it is the Bible. The guide in Islam
is the Quran. When we read the Quran, there are no less than four different places where the Quran says pork is prohibited. Allah says in the Quran in surah baqarah chapter two verse 173 In Surah, Maya chapter number five verse number three in for annum chapter number six was 145 and for in hell chapter number 16 Verse 115 huruma Alaikum we'll move to the what the Mohammed tz Omar allele good Allah be forbidden for you for Fouda that meet blood, the flesh of swine and any food on which any name besides Allah's name is taken. So your Quran says in no less than four different places that eating the flesh of pig pork is prohibited.
Similarly, if you read the Bible,
Bible in no less than three different places says pork is prohibited. Bible says in the Book of Leviticus chapter number 11.
Chapter number 11 was number seven a need that thou shalt not eat the flesh of swine, not touch its carcass. It's unclean for you.
A similar method is given the Book of Deuteronomy chapter number 14, verse number eight, though the swine has cloven foot and it chews not the curd. It is unclean for you. Similar it's mentioned in the book of Isaiah chapter 16, verse number two
If you should not have the flesh of swine, so Bible says in no less than three different places that you should not have the flesh of swine and Jesus case Peace be upon said in the Gospel of Matthew chapter number five verse the Messiah and 20 that thing not that I have come to destroy the law the prophets have come not to destroy but to fulfill. For anyone who breaks one of the least commandments shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven. That means if you break one law, one jot or tittle from the Old Testament, you shall not enter Jannah so as a Christian, if you believe in the Bible, then eating pork is prohibited for you is forbidden for you is haram for you. If
you're a Muslim, if you believe in the Quran, it is prohibited if you do not believe in the Bible, or do not believe in the Quran. Let's analyze what does today's reason and logic and science say about Pope? Today science tells us that if you have the flesh of swine, there are chances that you may have no less than 70 different diseases, you can have pinworm you can have roundworm
the most dangerous amongst all the diseases. It is tapeworm.
It's called as Taenia solium.
And it harbors in the interest of time, and very long. Even if you cook the food very well, the eggs, the ova of Taenia solium does not die. And from the Indus time, through via the bloodstream, it can go to almost all the organs of your body, it can enter the eye and cause blindness, it can enter the heart and cause heart attack, it can enter the brain and cause brain damage. And by the time you realize you're suffering from the disease, it's an irreversible damage done. Furthermore, today science tells us that when you eat pork, it is more of fat building material rather than muscle building material. That is the reason most of the people who are regular picky eaters, they
have good tires, they've got flats.
Today, science tells us that by eating poor, there are high chances of having atherosclerosis
atherosclerosis today science tells us that if you eat pig regularly, you may have hypertension, that there isn't more than 50% of the Americans today. They're suffering from hypertension, because most of them are picky eaters.
Today science tells us that one of the most fill this animal on the face of the earth is the pig. Wherever you find dirt and filth, we'll find the pig there.
Today science also tells us that pig is one of the most shameless animal on the face of the earth. Pig today is one of the most chimneys animal on the face of the earth. It enjoys
seeing its spouse seeing its mate, have sex with his friend.
In the Western countries, you have dance parties.
After dance party we are swapping of files you see with my wife, I sleep with your wife. Do you think it's modest?
And there is a scientific
thing that you eat pig and you behave like pig.
hope this answers your question faster.
