Mullahs make a big fuss over halalmeat. It is another control mechanism which the mullahs have plagiarised from the Old Testament. It isjust more mullah intolerance whichmakes life difficult for muslims. It also makes the muslims such poor dinner guests.
Nowhere does the Koran say that an animal needs to be ritually slaughtered before the meat is permissible (halal) for eating. Neither does the Koran say that only a muslim must slaughter the animal.
The mullahs non Koranic ritual slaughter is called zabeeha in Arabic.The mullahs have plagiarised their zabeeha from Jewish teachings in this case the Jewish shechita rules for the ritual slaughter of animals.
The Jewish shechita slaughteris performed by drawing a very sharp knife back and forth rapidly across the animal's throat making a single incision incising the main structures of the neck and allowing the blood to drain out. This inflicts severe pain and suffering on the animal.
According to shechita the animal must be killed by a religious slaughterer known in Hebrew as shochet. A shochetmust be a god fearing Jew of consistent religious practice.
The mullahs non Koranic zabeeha rules are obviously plagiarised from the Jewish shechita. According to the mullahs certain prerequisites must be met before an animal is slaughtered:
i. the animal must not be a forbidden substance
ii. the slaughter itself must be done by a sane adult muslim
iii. they must use a sharp knife to make a swift, deep incision that cuts the front of the throat, the carotid artery, windpipe and jugular veins
iv. mentioning Allah’s name at the time of slaughter is a must
v. if other than Allah's name is mentioned then this would be forbidden, due to the verse
5:3 "Forbidden for you are dead animals, and blood, and flesh of swine, and that which has been devoted to other than Allah….”
For the purpose of discussing this subject I will stick to the mullahs definition of haram as forbidden.
While the Koran has a very simple and easy determination of what is halal (permissible) and haram the mullahs have completely confused the muslims between halal meat and their own Jewish inspiredzabeeha slaughter.
What is halal as per the Koran?
5:4 They ask you what is halal for them. Say, "Halal for you are all good things, including what the dogs (mukallibeen) catch for you." You train them according to Allah's teachings. You may eat what they catch for you, and mention Allah’s name thereupon. You shall observe Allah. Allah is most efficient in reckoning.
Whatever is good for you is halal or permissible to be eaten. This is the commandment in the Koran. This is the overriding rule. So it is you who has to decide what is good for you. Seals, walruses, killer whales are good eating for Inuits in the frozen north. There are no sheep, cows and chicken at the North Pole.
In the tropical climates people may eat animals like pigs, porcupines, crocodiles, snakes, kangaroos, locusts, insects and other creatures – besides lamb, goats, cows and chicken. They have been eating these animals since they were created.The human being has found these animals to be good for them.
There is no mention in the Koran about any special slaughter ritual for these animals. For thousands of years all human beings including pre Islamic arabs, christians, hindus and others have known how to slaughter animals for food.
In 5:4 above the Koran says, “including what the dogs (mukallibeen) catch for you." You train them according to Allah's teachings. You may eat what they catch for you..”
Mukallibeen (plural) means dogs. The singular form is kalb. Some commenters say hunting dogs. Hunting dogs are still dogs. What the dogs catch is halal or permissible for consumption. Hunting dogs bite and tear into animals like rabbit and dear. They do not observe any zabeeha or shechita rituals. Despite this what the dogs catch is halal or permissible for consumption.
The mullahs zabeeha rituals, by which they declare meat haram or prohibited, are not found in the Koran. The mullahs thereby set themselves higher than Allah. It is more mullah blasphemy.
Herein also lies their mistake which by their own rules makes the mullah’s meat haram or ‘prohibited’ for consumption. According to the Koran, even if they are caught by hunting dogs, the animals are halal for consumption.Hunting dogs are neither jewish or muslim. But like the Jews, the mullahs insist that if the slaughterer is NOT muslim then the meat becomes haram.
Even if a non muslim slaughterer says the “bismillah” incantation (in the name of Allah) when he slaughters the animal and observes all the other requirements of zabeeha, the mullahs still say the meat is haram because the slaughterer is not of a muslim identity.
This is exactly like the Jews saying “a shochet (slaughterer) must be a god fearing Jew of consistent religious practice.” The mullah version is “the slaughter itself must be done by a sane adult muslim.”
So it is not Allah but the identity of the slaughterer which makes their meat halal (permissible) or haram (forbidden).
Hence the mullah’s zabeeha becomes blasphemous because :
5:3 Forbidden (haram) for you … that which has been devoted to other than Allah..
It is the identity of the shochet or zabeeha slaughterer which determines the mullahs halal meat. This is shirk or blasphemy. No where does the Koran tell us that only meat slaughtered by Muslims is halal or permissible. This cannot be so because even meat caught by dogs is halal (5:4). Hence the mullah’s zabeeha rituals are blasphemous and their slaughtered meat becomes “blasphemous” as well. The muslims have been eating “blasphemous” food for centuries.
In real life, even women who work the land who may not have assistance should be able to slaughter cows, goat and sheep by themselves to feed their children. Slaughtering is just one method. Any effective means are suitable.You can shoot the animal with a gun, shoot it with an arrow, strangle the neck, hit it on the head with a mallet or stun the animal before slaughter.
Or as we have seen in 5:4 above, we can get our dogs to catch the animals for us.
Muslims are only required to mention Allah’s name over all food when they eat it.
Hence the Koran makes life easy for muslims. Muslims can travel anywhere in the world and eat animals that have been killed and cooked by anyone, including non muslims. Or animals caught by dogs and hunting animals. All food and all meat is halal or permissible for Muslims ‘as long as it is good for you”.
Other than making their meat haram, themullahs follow many other biblical prohibitions on food. The Koran only makes “haram” FOUR TYPES of food ie dead animals, running blood, the meat of pigs and any food upon which other than Allah’s name has been proclaimed.
5:3 "(Haram) for you are dead animals, and blood and flesh of swine, and that which has been devoted to other than Allah….”
The Koran specifically sanctions only the flesh of swine or lahma al khinzir. There is no mention of lard or pig fat, pig skin, bones or pig gelatin. The Koran certainly does not forbid the wearing of pig skin leather.
And only running blood is sanctioned because of obvious health risks. Harmful bacteria and pathogens may still be alive in fresh blood. “Cooked” blood or blood in cooked meat is not ‘running blood’. The verse also continues with more detail about animals that are dead:
"..and the strangled, and the dead through beating, and the dead through falling from a height, and that which hath been killed by horns, and the devoured of wild beasts, saving that which ye purify, and that which hath been slaughtered on altars .. " (5:3).
Even in this list you can still eat “saving that which ye purify”.Other than these sanctioned foods, EVERYTHING ELSE is immediately halal or permissible for Muslims. That would include frogs, crocodiles, alligators, birds and whatever else - AS LONG AS the food is good for you (5:4 above), including what your DOGS catch for you.
This also means that Muslims can rear DOGS and use the DOGS to catch food. But some sunni mullahs say dogs are haram. They hate dogs.
For centuries, millions of people have been eating porcupine, marsh rats, snakes and crocodiles. These animals are much sought after in various countries. People eat them because these animals make good eating. Even the fake hadithrecords the prophet being served a desert lizard called 'dhab'.
Abdullah b. 'Abbas reported: I and Khalid b. Walid went to the apartment of Maimuna along with Allāh's Messenger (may peace be upon him), and there was presented to him a roasted lizard. Allāh's Messenger (may peace be upon him) stretched his hand towards It, whereupon some of the women who had been in the house of Maimuna said: Inform Allāh's Messenger (may peace be upon him) what he intends to eat. Allāh's Messenger (may peace be upon him) lifted his hand. I said: Messenger of Allāh, Is it forbidden? He said: No. It is not found in the land of my people, and I feel that I have no liking for it. Khalid said: I then chewed and ate it, while, Allāh's Messenger (may peace be upon him) was looking (at me).
Arabs also eat marsh rats. Arabs and Pakistanis eat locusts and other insects too. The Scandinavians eat the musk rat. The Amazonian Indians eat the capybara, a large rodent.
If human beings follow the Koran, they can eat anything that is good for them. Similarly if the muslims follow the Koran, they can assimilate or fit easily into any society on the earth and still be good muslims.
The mullahs however have come up with very long lists of other foods which they have prohibited. And because their prohibitions are not sanctioned by the prophet you find differences between the various sects like the shiahs, shafiee, hanafi, maliki and hanbali on what exactly is halal or haram.
For example some sects say crabs, frogs, birds with talons and animals with canine teeth are haram or forbidden for consumption. If you refer the book ‘Al Halal Wal Haram Fil Islam’ (The lawful and the prohibited in Islam) by the well known mullah Yusuf Qardawi you will understand this better.The Koran however warns us that the mullahs are not supposed to forbid or make haram any of these foods.
5:87-88 “O ye who believe! Forbid not the good things which Allah hath made lawful for you, and transgress not. Lo! Allahloveth not transgressors. Eat of that which Allah hath bestowed on you as food lawful and good, and keep your duty to Allah in Whom ye are believers.”
But the mullahs have forbidden many things including the things that are good for many people. And they get their list of forbidden foodsfrom the Bible. Another fact is that the Koran makes lawful to hunt in the sea and to eat anything from the sea. Everything from the sea is permissible or halal for eating. Of course it must also be good for you (5:3).
5:96 “To hunt and to eat of the sea is made lawful for you, a provision for you and for seafarers.."
So for centuries Inuits hunt and eat seals, walruses, whales, sharks and all kinds of fish. And we all eat fish from the sea. Also turtles, crabs, shellfish and sea cucumbers. All these are lawful according to the prophet in the Koran.
The mullahs however have created their own confusing lists of what is lawful and unlawful - even from the sea.
The hanafi sect among sunnis says that fish without scales are haram. This would make sharks and catfish without scales haram. Some say that eels are haram because they are serpents. Some say mud crabs are ‘makruh’ or 'not encouraged' to be eaten because they live in two habitats i.e. in water and on land. These ideas are all plagiarized from the Bible :
[Lev 11:9] "These you may eat, of all that are in the waters. Everything in the waters that has fins and scales, whether in the seas or in the rivers, you may eat.
Only fish that have fins and scales may be eaten. This is what the mullahsay too. Here is more from the Bible :
[Lev 11:10] But anything in the seas or the rivers that has not fins and scales, of the swarming (crawling) creatures in the waters and of the living creatures that are in the waters, is an abomination to you.
The hanafi mullahs say that stingrays, sharks, eels and fish without scales cannot be eaten.
[Lev 11:11] They shall remain an abomination to you; of their flesh you shall not eat, and their carcasses you shall have in abomination.
[Lev 11:12] Everything in the waters that has not fins and scales is an abomination to you.
This is exactly what the mullahs say. Then the mullahs have also made a list of birds that CANNOT be eaten. Included in this list are the birds of prey especially birds with talons or curved beaks. This list is taken from the Bible:
[Lev 11:13] "And these you shall have in abomination among the birds, they shall notbe eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, the vulture, the osprey,
[Lev 11:14] the kite, the falcon according to its kind,
[Lev 11:15] every raven according to its kind,
[Lev 11:16] the ostrich, the nighthawk, the sea gull, the hawk according to its kind,
[Lev 11:17] the owl, the cormorant, the ibis,
[Lev 11:18] the water hen, the pelican, the carrion vulture,
[Lev 11:19] the stork, the heron according to its kind, the hoopoe, and the bat
The mullahs list of non Koranic food prohibitions is plagiarized from the Bible. And quite predictably, because the Bible allows it, the mullahs also make permissible the eating of locusts and some grasshoppers. Why not scorpions or cockroaches? The answer is because the Bible mentions locusts and grasshoppers. The mullahs copycat the Bible for both the prohibited and the permissible list of foods.
[Lev 11:21] Yet among the winged insects that go on all fours you may eat those which have legs above their feet, with which to leap on the earth.
[Lev 11:22] Of them you may eat: the locust according to its kind, the bald locust according to its kind, the cricket according to its kind, and the grasshopper according to its kind.
Well insects have six legs andnot four. These are more examples of non Koranic mullah teachings which they plagiarized from the Bible and the Jewish books. These teachings are certainly not part of Islam.
The Koran has already established the scientific and logical statement that "ALL GOOD THINGS ARE MADE LAWFUL FOR YOU" (5:4).
Hence in Cambodia and Vietnam they serve fried cockroaches and scorpion. If it is good to eat, why not? The Koran allows it.
The mullahs have completely fallen into the trap set by the People of the Book, whom they despise.
2:120 “And the Jews will not be pleased with you, nor the christians until you follow their ways. Say: Surely Allah’s guidance, that is the (true) guidance. And if you follow their desires after the knowledge that has come to you, you shall have no guardian from Allah, nor any helper”.
Most certainly the mullahs have been led astray. They follow the Jews and the christians. The mullahs are not muslims.
