A Christian is asking about the reason for the
prohibition on pork
نصراني يسأل عن الحكمة وراء تحريم أكل لحم الخترير
Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid
محمد صالح المنجد
Why does Islam forbid pork, when the pig is one of the creations of
Praise be to Allaah.
Our Lord has forbidden eating pork in definitive terms. Allaah says (interpretation
of the meaning):
“Say (O Muhammad): I find not in that which has been revealed to me
anything forbidden to be eaten by one who wishes to eat it, unless it be
Maytah (a dead animal) or blood poured forth (by slaughtering or the
like), or the flesh of swine (pork); for that surely, is impure or impious
(unlawful) meat (of an animal) which is slaughtered as a sacrifice for others
than Allaah (or has been slaughtered for idols, or on which Allaah’s
Name has not been mentioned while slaughtering)…” [Al-An’aam:145]
By the mercy of Allaah and His kindness towards us, Allaah has permitted
us to eat all good things, and He has not forbidden anything but those
that are impure. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“…he allows them as lawful At-Tayyibaat (i.e. all good and lawful as regards
things, deeds, beliefs, persons and foods), and prohibits them as
unlawful Al-Khabaa’ith (i.e. all evil and unlawful as regards things, deeds,
beliefs, persons and foods)…” [Al-A’raaf:157]
We do not doubt for an instant that the pig is a dirty and filthy animal,
and that eating it is harmful to man. Moreover it lives on dirt and filth,
and it is something that is off-putting to those of a sound nature who
refuse to touch it, because eating it is either a cause or a sign of a person’s
With regard to the physical harm caused by eating pork, modern science
has proved a number of things, such as the following:
Pork is regarded as one of the kinds of meat that contain the most
cholesterol, an increase of which in the bloodstream leads to an in3
creased likelihood of blocked arteries. The fatty acids in pork are also
of an unusual formation, when compared with the fatty acids in
other types of food, which makes them more easily absorbed by the
body, thus increasing cholesterol levels.
Pork meat and pork fat contribute to the spread of cancers of the
colon, rectum, prostate and blood.
Pork meat and pork fat contribute to obesity and related diseases
that are difficult to treat.
Eating pork leads to scabies, allergies and stomach ulcers.
Eating pork causes lung infections which result from tapeworms,
lungworms and microbial infections of the lungs.
The most serious danger of eating pork is that pork contains tapeworms
which may grow to a length of 2-3 meters. The growth of the eggs of
these worms in the human body may lead to insanity and hysteria if they
grow in the area of the brain. If they grow in the region of the heart that
may lead to high blood pressure and heart attacks. Another kind of worm
that is to be found in pork is the trichinosis worm that cannot be killed by
cooking, the growth of which in the body may lead to paralysis and skin
The doctors have confirmed that tapeworm disease is regarded as one of
the serious diseases that may result from eating pork. It may develop in
the small intestine and after several months may grow into a large worm
whose body is composed of a thousand segments, with a length of 4-10
meters, which lives alone in the intestine of the infected person and part
of it may appear when he defecates. When the pig swallows and ingests
its eggs, they enter the tissues and muscles in the form of larvae sacs
containing fluid and the head of the tapeworm. When a person eats infected
pork, the larva turns into a complete worm in the intestine. These
worms cause weakness and vitamin B12 deficiency, which leads to a specific
type of anaemia, which may in turn cause nervous problems. In some
cases the larvae may reach the brain, causing convulsions, increased
pressure within the brain, epilepsy and even paralysis.
Eating pork that is not thoroughly cooked may also lead to trichinosis
(infestation with a hairlike nematode worm). When these parasites reach
the small intestine, three to five days later many larvae appear which
enter the intestine and reach the blood, from which they reach most of
the tissues of the body. The larvae move to the muscles and form cysts
there, and the patient suffers intense muscle pains. The disease may develop
into infection of the cerebral membrane and brain, and infections
of the heart muscle, lungs, kidneys and nerves. It may be a fatal disease in
rare cases.
It is well known that there are some diseases that are unique to humans
and are not shared with any other animals except pigs, such as rheumatism
and joint pain. Allaah indeed spoke the truth when He said (interpretation
of the meaning):
“He has forbidden you only the Maytah (dead animals), and blood, and
the flesh of swine, and that which is slaughtered as a sacrifice for others
than Allaah (or has been slaughtered for idols, on which Allaah’s Name
has not been mentioned while slaughtering). But if one is forced by necessity
without willful disobedience nor transgressing due limits, then
there is no sin on him. Truly, Allaah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful” [al-
Baqarah: 173]
These are some of the harmful effects of eating pork. Perhaps after studying
them you will not have any doubts that it is forbidden. We hope that
this will be the first step in your being guided towards the true religion.
So stop, research, look and think, objectively and fairly, seeking only to
find out the truth and follow it. I ask Allaah to guide you to that which is
best for you in this world and in the Hereafter.
But even if we did not know about the harmful effects of eating pork, this
would not change our belief that it is haraam in the slightest, or weaken
our resolve to abstain from it. You know that when Adam (peace be upon
him) was expelled from the Garden, it was because he ate from the tree
from which Allaah forbade him to eat. We do not know anything about
that tree, and Adam did not need to enquire into the reason why it was
forbidden to eat from it. Rather it was sufficient for him, as it is sufficient
for us and for every believer, to know that Allaah has forbidden it.
Look at some of the harmful effects of eating pork; look at the research of
the Fourth Annual Conference of Islamic Medicine, Kuwait edition, p. 731
ff; and al-Wiqaayah al-Sihhiyyah fi Daw’ al-Kitaab wal-Sunnah by Lu’lu’ah
bint Saalih, p. 635 ff.
But we ask you once again: Isn’t pork forbidden in the Old Testament
which forms part of your Holy Book?
“Do not eat any detestable thing. These are the animals you may eat…
The pig is also unclean; although it has a split hoof, it does not chew the
cud, you are not to eat their meat or touch their carcasses.”
(Deuteronomy 14:3-8)
See also Leviticus 11-1-8.
We do not need to quote evidence that pork is forbidden for the Jews. If
you have any doubt then ask people and they will tell you. But what we
think we need to draw you attention to is some other things that are also
mentioned in your Holy Book, this time in the New Testament which tells
you that the rulings of the Torah still apply to you and cannot be changed.
Doesn’t it say in the Bible that the Messiah said:
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets. I have
not come to abolish them but to fulfil them. I tell you the truth, until heaven
and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a
pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.”
Matthew 5:17-18?
With this text, we do not need to look for another ruling on pork in the
New Testament, but we will add here another quotation which shows
definitively that pork is impure:
“A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside. The demons
begged Jesus: ‘Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them.’ He gave
them permission, and the evil spirits came out and went into the pigs.”
Mark 5:11-13
Perhaps you will say that this is abrogated, and that Peter said such and
such and Paul said such and such…?
This is changing the words of Allaah and abrogating the Torah and the
words of the Messiah who confirmed to you that it would abide as long as
heaven and earth remain. Can this be abrogated by the words of Paul or
Let us assume that this is true and that the prohibition was indeed abrogated,
but why are you criticizing this prohibition in Islam when it was
prohibited for you at first?
With regard to your saying that if eating it is forbidden, then why did Allaah
create pigs? We do not think that you are serious, otherwise we
would ask you: why did Allaah create such and such of other things that
are harmful or repulsive? Rather we would ask you: why did Allaah create
the Shaytaan?
Is it not the prerogative of the Creator to command His slaves as He will,
and to rule them as He will? No one can overturn His ruling or change His
Is it not the duty of the created being, the slave, to say to his Lord, whenever
He commands him to do something: “We hear and we obey”?
You may enjoy its taste and want to eat it, and those around you may
enjoy it, but doesn’t Paradise deserve some sacrifice on your part of that
which your heart desires?

Gif temp...

Sux, huh?

Oh well... it's just a test. I made it anyway, but I did it the wimpy way..

ASSHOLES, here are some Deaths caused by illegal drugs vs legal drugs in America

You say you support the drug war. You say yer a patriot. Sounds to me like you just might NOT even know what a patriot was, ya dumbass!!!

The Patriots were hated by all. They were rebels and everyone else... They were whimpering little cowerin pussies. They had to meet in secret, wanna know why?

Because the people hated them. All anyone wanted back then was a free ride (like people today), they only cared about kissing ass or other side of ass to gain favor with the rulers at the time [England]. They didn't give any shit about reality. They just needed to be popular. Pffft....

If you honestly were a patriot then you would support the causes like they did. We know you can't though, because lookin good is all yer in it for, huh?

When the Real Patriots returned with a plan and a few men willing to die for those like you you still played both sides. When they started to actually win against the boundaries then you all jumped up and bragged, "I know him", "I was behind them all along", I stand for Freedom, yey!", but you stood for Lazy Ignorant and Foolish and nothing more!

Below are a few numbers and words. I don't really give a shit how you land into reality, but I did teach my own.

Support any damn thing you want friends. I've already seen you support Elvis as a DEA Drug Agent while he abused the drugs of at least 50 men that you want to lock up. I have seen you support O.J. Simpson, Madonna, The catholic church (Hell I woulda supported em too if I had known that every boy gets free blowjobs for life startin at age 6), support anti-marijuana laws knowing that Hemp and only Hemp has been proven to cure cancer), sooner or later you'll just find another easy way to support more lies anyway.

In closing of my opener up there I just have one more thing to say...

"You people (most of you) have no opinion. You change every notion twice a year when the media lie's change in the Spring & Fall, you preach on right and rights, but you change yer mind every time you hear the call. Not many of you I ever met in my life ever stood by anything without first an audience, second a political backing and third a way to look like a pretty little ducky for a few weeks. Ever wonder why you change so often? Cause you never even tried to be anything except part of something, you fukkin joke"!

Go ahead and fight the war on drugs ducky, break the laws you support like you always did and blame it on cancer or whatever, Lock up all the victims you can (after that asshole yer next in the food chain sucka), yea, win yer drug war and win at losin again!

(2009 - causes of death - harms of prescription drugs) "Each year offers new examples of injuries and deaths caused by untoward dangers in prescription drugs. Prominent illustrations from recent years include Vioxx, a popular arthritis painkiller that more than doubled the risk of heart attacks and strokes,6 a risk that lingered long after users stopped taking the drug;7 “Phen-fen,” a diet drug that caused heart damage;8 and Propulsid, a drug that reduced gastric acid but also threatened patients’ hearts.9 Once information on these side-effects became known to the public, the manufacturers of each of these drugs stopped selling them and, eventually, paid millions or billions of dollars to settle claims for resulting injuries.10Merck, for example, having withdrawn the profitable Vioxx drug11 from the market in 2004, settled nearly 50,000 Vioxx cases in late 2007 for $4.85 billion.12 In 2009, Eli Lilly agreed to plead guilty and pay $1.415 billion in criminal and civil penalties for promoting its antipsychotic drug, Zyprexa, as suitable for uses not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”).13 These cases may be among the more prominent, but they represent just the tip of the iceberg of damage caused by prescription drugs."

One or more prescription drugs were involved in 20,044 (73.8%) of the 27,153 deaths, and OPR were involved in 14,800 (73.8%) of the 20,044 prescription drug overdose deaths."

In 1999, opioid analgesics were involved in 20% of the 19,741 poisoning deaths. During 1999–2007, the number of poisoning deaths involving specified drugs other than opioid analgesics increased from 9,262 to 12,790, and the number involving nonspecified drugs increased from 3,608 to 8,947."

The New Epidemic Sweeping Across America (and it's Not a Disease)

I took this story from here, [Link to article]. I strongly recommend you read all of it on there because I did not share all of it here.
By Dr. Mercola
Death by medicine is a 21st-century epidemic, and America's "war on drugs" is clearly directed at the wrong enemy!
Prescription drugs are now killing far more people than illegal drugs, and while most major causes of preventable deaths are declining, those from prescription drug use are increasing, an analysis of recently released data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) by the Los Angeles Times revealed.
The Times analysis of 2009 death statistics, the most recent available, showed:
  • For the first time ever in the US, more people were killed by drugs than motor vehicle accidents
  • 37,485 people died from drugs, a rate fueled by overdoses on prescription pain and anxiety medications, versus 36,284 from traffic accidents
  • Drug fatalities more than doubled among teens and young adults between 2000 and 2008, and more than tripled among people aged 50 to 69
Again, these drug-induced fatalities are not being driven by illegal street drugs; the analysis found that the most commonly abused prescription drugs like OxyContin, Vicodin, Xanax and Soma now cause more deaths than heroin and cocaine combined.

"Pharmageddon" is Upon Us

Pharmageddon is "the prospect of a world in which medicines and medicine produce more ill-health than health, and when medical progress does more harm than good" -- and it is no longer a prospect but fully upon us. Those most at risk from dying from this new drug crisis are people you would least expect; the analysis revealed the death toll is highest among people in their 40s, but all ages, from teenagers to the elderly, and all walks of life are being affected. In fact, prescription drugs are now the preferred "high" for many, especially teens, as they are typically used legally, which eliminates the stigma of being a "junkie."
"According to the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, prescription drugs are second to marijuana as the drug of choice for today's teens. In fact, seven of the top 10 drugs used by 12th-graders were prescription drugs.
More than 40 percent of high school seniors reported that painkillers are "fairly" or "very" easy to get. They also reported that they believed that if they were to get caught, there was less shame attached to the use of prescription drugs than to street drugs. This mirrors the perceptions of their parents, who when queried said that they felt prescription drugs were 
safer alternative to drugs typically sold by a drug dealer."

How Many are Dying From Prescription Drugs?

Nearly 20 percent of Americans have used prescription drugs for nonmedicinal reasons, three-quarters of whom may be abusing them. Legal prescription drug abuse is a silent epidemic, and is part of the reason why the modern American medical system has become the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. Authored in two parts by Gary Null, PhD, Carolyn Dean, MD ND, Martin Feldman, MD, Debora Rasio, MD, and Dorothy Smith, PhD, the comprehensive Death by Medicine article described in excruciating detail how everything from medical errors to adverse drug reactions to unnecessary procedures caused more harm than good.
  • In a June 2010 report in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, study authors said that in looking over records that spanned from 1976 to 2006 (the most recent year available) they found that, of 62 million death certificates, almost a quarter-million deaths were coded as having occurred in a hospital setting due to medication errors.
  • An estimated 450,000 preventable medication-related adverse events occur in the U.S. every year.
  • The costs of adverse drug reactions to society are more than $136 billion annually -- greater than the total cost of cardiovascular or diabetic care.
  • Adverse drug reactions cause injuries or death in 1 of 5 hospital patients.
  • The reason there are so many adverse drug events in the U.S. is because so many drugs are used and prescribed – and many patients receive multiple prescriptions at varying strengths, some of which may counteract each other or cause more severe reactions when combined.
There are numerous repercussions to a society that eats, breathes and sleeps prescription medications, not the least of which is its impact on children. Between 2001 and 2008, there was a 36 percent increase in hospital admissions, and a 28 percent increase in emergency room visits, among children 5 and younger who had accidentally ingested medication. ER visits for ingestion of prescription opioid painkillers, such as Oxycodone, increased 101 percent!
And in 2009, there were nearly 4.6 million drug-related visits to U.S. emergency rooms nationwide, with more than half due to adverse reactions to prescription medications – most of which were being taken exactly as prescribed. When you add in the growing numbers of people who are using these drugs recreationally or due to addiction, you begin to see the magnitude of the problem that the pharmaceutical industry is propagating. 

The Real Thugs of the Drug World

The "war on drugs" has focused nearly exclusively on the illegal trafficking of drugs like cocaine, heroin and marijuana, while the most powerful drug dealers of all -- the pharmaceutical companies -- are allowed to grow their businesses with the U.S. government's gold seal of approval.
You can read the grim details in full here, but here is just a sampling of what the top drug companies are up to:
  • Merck: With a long list of deaths to its credit, and more than $5.5 billion in judgments and fines levied against it, it was five years before Merck made its $30-billion recall of the painkiller Vioxx that I warned my readers that it might be a real killer for some people. After the drug was withdrawn, and 60,000 had already died, Merck picked up the pieces painlessly by getting a new drug fast-tracked and on the market.

    That drug is Gardasil, a vaccine that so far has been linked to thousands of adverse events and at least 49 unexplained deaths. It's a situation that the FDA and CDC have been denying repeatedly, keeping their heads buried in the sand even as the adverse reports mount.
  • Baxter: Dozens of recalls of products that caused deaths and injuries, at least 11 different guilty pleas to fraud and illegal sales activity, more than 200 lawsuits – many of them stemming from selling AIDS-tainted blood to hemophiliacs – and more than $1.3 billion in criminal fines and civil penalties.
  • Pfizer: In the largest health care fraud settlement in history, Pfizer was ordered to pay $2.3 billion to resolve criminal and civil allegations that the company illegally promoted uses of four of its drugs, including the painkiller Bextra, the antipsychotic Geodon, the antibiotic Zyvox, and the anti-epileptic Lyrica.

Prescription Painkillers Now the Leading Cause of Accidental Deaths

Below was quoted from [Link] to share the some of the information and the web page with you.
Car accidents are no longer the leading cause of accidental deaths in the United States. According to a recent report published by the CDC's National Center for Health Statistics, this dubious distinction now belongs to drug poisoning. What's at the root of this trend? A river of prescription painkillers.

Next are a few quotes from this page [Link], This one is mostly a list of "popular people's deaths. I'm not really any more concerned about them than you tho, so I didn't bother reading much of it.
Killer Weed, huh?
Here is why they dry to blame cannabis...
"Cannabis - Yep, there really are people whose official "underlying cause of death" has been attributed to their use of cannabis. Of course, more people have died from just about anything you can think of and none of these deaths were the result of toxic conditions caused by cannabis -- they are all classed as mental disorders involving cannabis (ICD-9 code 304.3 - Drug Dependence and ICD-9 code 305.2 -Nondependent Abuse)."

Next they have the "induced" method, but all thosse serial killers. Not even one of them was not acting alone. They all were on pills given to them from their doctors! 
Drug-Induced - This category includes everything under the sun. Although the US Office of National Drug Control Policy uses drug-induced deaths as a reason to wage war on your fellow citizens, in actuality only 21 percent of these deaths are due to the use of illegal drugs. Drug-induced causes exclude accidents, homicides, and other causes indirectly related to drug use. Also excluded are newborn deaths associated with mother’s drug use -- 41 deaths over the 20 years.

The best and fastest image viewer made is Irfanview!!!

Irfanview is by far the best image viewing tool out there. It can also play many media formats, like mp3, mpg, mpeg, flash content like flv games or the older swf files and many others.

Beyond that Irfanview can build you web pages to display pictures to share. It makes the thumbnails and puts them on an index page and then if makes a page for each image to view full sized. You can use some included filters to touch up the images or you can add filters to do even more.

It is in no way comparable to Photo Shop or Paint Shop Pro, but it's not intended to be. Instead it's a stand alone application that you can run from a flash drive and take with you in your pocket without installing anything on a computer I find that handy when showing pictures to others on the fly or getting images from them without having the proper program required to view them. Like when I go to OfficeMax to get larger sized prints and need to check format requirements.

If you decide to install I recommend you install the addons package. It's tiny and useful
