The Bible prohibits the consumption of pork, in the book of Leviticus"And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be cloven footed, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you"."Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcass shall ye not touch, they are unclean to you." [Leviticus 11:7-8] similar prohibition, is repeated in the Bible in the book of Isaiah chapter 65 verse 2-5.

Thank you brother may Allah bless your effort.

Most at times when muslims talk about a ruling in islam, the christians take it as though it is only islam that forbids such. But quoting them their own holy book should put them to silence which is why we quote the bible. for example someone was aguing with me that pork is allowed in christainity and i said no. so I forwarded the above piece he became enlightened and confess to me that he didnt know that. i was not at all mad with him because i knew its ignorance for him and but for some they just want to deny what is in the bible in order to live their lives the way they want. You see today so many acts that are forbidden in the bible are the way of life of today's christians world wide and they do them without even acknowledging they are not right but rather as a legal way of life. Sometimes you wonder if they ever use the bible in their churches anymore. This is not to say they are not good christians around just like you have bad eggs in islam but atleast whatever happens the muslims still acknowledge what is wrong from right and christians just go about as if its normal.

May God help us all. ameen

don't mind them, the massai should have died off by now. A likely reason for banning the eating of pigs is that early humans didn't have means of preparing them properly to avoid disease.

The papau new guineans depend on the "Pig" as a signifcant source of their protein diet. Without it I don't think their kind would have survived to date.

It is evident that the lack of these essential proteins and even other nutrients which they find hard to come by have contributed to their morphology i.e stunted growth, skinny pyshic, women have small dried up bosoms.

Though many cultures have detested this beast as an unnatural source of food, others without choice have depended on it for their SURVIVAL.

In other words if I have to eat it I would, otherwise it is not the best tasting of all meats.

My 2 cents.

we know its not a new thing. Mooslims cant do without the bible because their own quran is nothing but unintelligible gibberish.

This IS the message of Jesus Christ - John 3: 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God

Do you believe it?

simply because the quran copied from the bible.

1. the bible existed centuries and in some cases thousands of yrs before the quran.

2. The quran does NOT in anyway represent eyewitness accounts. where did it get its "similar stories" from? Pls dont tell us "revelation". We've had enough of lies.

spend more time familiarising urself with the quran you hypocrite. You cant claim the bible is corrupt and then be familiarising urself with its stories.

Could it be you read the bible because the quran contains very poor excerpts of biblical stories that you need to ferret the bible to perfectly understand?

There is no knowledge in the quran to be sought. Why read the quran when muslims themselves need to read the bible to understand the myriad of stories in the quran?

typical. Call them out on the fraudulent quran and they start crying about "hatred".

We dont need comparative religion, its the ploy of the devil to insidously destroy christianity and supplant it with islam all under the cloak of "understanding".

What a joke. Islam is becoming a problem for the UK.

Why hasnt comparative religion become a success in Saudi Arabia?

What point are u trying to ague here?

Only God knows why he forbids human from taking blood because his the all knowing. But he had set knowledge as blessing for mankind and he that seek shall find. Scientific discoveries are still being made each day but is not because they do not exist but because of people seeking for answers to why and how such and such was so. I will tell you most scientific discoveries have explation in either Quran or Bible.

About Muslim citing the bible is not a new thing because on most occations we try to show that it is not only Islam that prohibits certain things but same in christanity but christians just go about blaming islam for being a harsh religion where as similar doctering applies in christanity. for you information muslim believe in the message of Jesus christ and we have similar stories in the Quran as in the Bible and thats why I make an effort to read the bible just to familiarise myself with its teachings. Your should also try to seek knowledge of the Quran and know what it says before u come here and start throwing your hatred. Thats why for us to understand each other, comparative religion is always very important. This has been successful in many countries including uk where I live but with nigerians its always a problem. Funny enough some of this nigerians dont even know the bible that well.

no it is a disgrace. to claim that blood uric acid is toxic is frankly absurd, several cultures drink animal blood and it hasnt killed them yet.

Centuries ago muslims wont eat blood, did they know anything about uric acid?

A muslim tries to explain islam and of course rushes off to borrow bible verses. How deluded can these people get?

The same bible they claim is corrupted by the pen of scribes?
