A pig is a creature of Allah (SWT). As is a horse, dolphin, beetle, hummingbird, all animals were created by Allah and all should be respected.
Don't hate any creation of God. Everything has a purpose.
How can you not like this?
Muslims are prohibited to EAT pork...as are Christians and Jews.
He has only forbidden you carrion, blood and pork and what has been consecrated to other than Allah. But anyone who is forced to eat it-without desiring it or going to excess in it-commits no crime. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Qur'an, 2:173)
We can still say the word 'pig' without spelling it out as if it's a taboo word.
You can still teach your child about pigs on the farm (because they need to learn) without skipping that page of the picture book. In some cases i've heard parent's banning the book or removing the page of the book....?! Absurd.
A pig is NOT a sacred animal in Islam, that isn't the reason why Muslims do not eat pork, at all.
It isn't funny when a pigs head, heart or other organ is thrown over a mosque wall, it's just vulgar. If you are wondering who would bother to do such an immature thing, this has been known to happen in England. In their ignorance they believe the last point to be true, so wish to offend.
A pig is impure as it eats it's own excrement, this is one reason why Muslims do not eat pork.
A CSI will use a pig carcass to determine the type of weapon/blade used to create a unique pattern in the skin (stab wound) in a case, as the animals skin is closest to that of a humans. Tattoo artists also practice on pig skin before they are allowed to ink a customer. There are people who think this (pig skin/crackling) is actually beneficial to consume.
It is an adulterous animal. You are what you eat.
Pork is incompatible with the human body, it's known to cause heart disease and other illnesses with it's high salt, hormone, antibodies and fat content. Think of all the auto immune and other unexplainable diseases that seem to have 'no trigger'.
Not forgetting pork can cause issues with your cholesterol, block arteries, and let's face it, it's never a 'must have' ingredient on any healthy meal plan!
Juvenile attempts to cause friction by placing a packet of cooked ham on the halal meat stand in the supermarket, will be ignored. Just like if a child were to have a tantrum, negative behaviour will not be awarded with a response.
