So I did some looking because Im not familiar with the subject. This is what I found
A variety of substances are considered as harmful (haraam) for humans to consume and, therefore, forbidden as per various Quranic verses:
•Animals slaughtered in the name of anyone but God. All that has been dedicated or offered in sacrifice to an idolatrous altar or saint or a person considered to be "divine"[Quran 2:173] [Quran 5:3]
•Carrion (carcasses of dead animals)[Quran 2:173]
•An animal that has been strangled, beaten (to death), killed by a fall, gored (to death), savaged by a beast of prey (unless finished off by a human)[Quran 5:3]
•Food over which God's name is not pronounced (or at least not in a name other than God)[Quran 6:121]"................I guess I dont get the slaughtering in the name of God. I suppose I understand but I dont. If you are killing it to eat it, wouldnt that not be done for God but for man?
mnmaggiemn, It is very much in line with how Christians (hopefully) say grace before a meal. It is a way of giving thanks to He who provides.************** As far as all the fuss and the lawsuit, I will not argue. I just wish Muslims and other religious would be as obedient to their other laws of treating their fellow man with kindness and charity as they are with checking their mcnuggets for incongruities.
Religious laws may be silly, but false advertising is false advertising. People deserve honesty.
why any religion would believe you can get holy food from MickyDs is beyond me. Hopefully they jihad against them now, that might serve to reduce the collective cholesterol level in America.
