Slaughtering of animals
Hindus, Jains, and Buddhists do not eat meat and consider slaughtering of animals
for their meat as cruel and inhuman. We can analyze it rationally whether slaughtering
of animals is cruelty or not.
that there are many animals that eat chiefly meat (Carnivos). Such animals have
an inborn tendency and biological make-up to prey on plant-eating animals (herbivores).
God has given these animals extremely sharp bladelike shearing teeth, strong jaw
muscles and other necessary facilities of hunting. If hunting, slaughtering and
eating of meat is a cruel and barbarous act then why the Most Kind and Merciful
God has created carnivores which cannot eat anything except meat.
of goats, sheep and cows are being slaughtered every day for eating purposes.
But there has never been any shortage of these halal animals.Thus, eating meat
can not be regarded as a barbaric act. However, Islam stresses on moderate eating
of animals meat and strictly maintains regulation regarding the welfare of all
of the religion
Lastly, the true
Divine religion can easily be recognised by its ability to guide the mankind in
each and every sphere of his life.
war between Islam and the adherents of all other religion is on the issue of comprehensiveness
of Islamic teachings.
They argue that
religion is a private thing and it should not come out to interfere with the social
and official works. Several times a practicing Muslim encounters such provoking
remarks; Dont bring your religion in office, please keep it in the mosque
or in your house. These people do not know one basic thing about Islam and that
is the comprehensive nature of Islam. Unlike other religion, Islam covers each
and every aspect of human life and therefore demands its followers to observe
its teaching in every sphere of their life.
a careful analysis of religions can help every person of rational thinking to
differentiate between the true and untrue religion.
The aim of this lesson is to enable you to identify your faith
in a rational way. Blind following and inheriting the fathers religion without
real understanding of the faith has no value in Islam. The primary criterion of
Emaan laid down by the Holy Quran is: to testify and intellectually recognize
the basic contents of the faith. The fulfillment of this basic condition demands
sincere efforts to acquire useful knowledge and to do some research. This is why,
acquisition of knowledge is compulsory for every male and female Muslim.
