Is there a reason because i am unaware on why... And is there any other food that i cant eat?

 

Walaykum as Salaam;

 

 

"O you people! Eat of what is on earth, lawful and good..." Holy Quran (2:168)

 

we can't eat port ' cause it's forbidden in Quran.

 

 

(He hath only forbidden you dead meat, and blood, and the flesh of swine, and that on which any other name hath been invoked besides that of Allah.

 

But if one is forced by necessity, without wilful disobedience, nor transgressing due limits - then is he guiltless.

 

 

For Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful) ( chapter 2 .verse no: 173)

Dietary laws for Muslims are very clear. As outlined in the Qur'an, Muslims are forbidden from consuming pork, alcohol, blood, meat dedicated to false gods, etc.

:D brother believer6,

 

Welcome to the forums.

 

As for your question on why we are not allowed to eat pork.. the answer is quite simple.. it is because it is stated clearly in the Holy Quran that we shouldn't. That is it, end of story.

 

One such mention is in Chapter 2, Verse 173 and i'm posting the english translation of it by Yusuf Ali.

 

(2:173) "He hath only forbidden you dead meat, and blood, and the flesh of swine, and that on which any other name hath been invoked besides that of Allah. But if one is forced by necessity, without wilful disobedience, nor transgressing due limits,- then is he guiltless. For Allah is Oft-forgiving Most Merciful"

 

I hope this helps yout.

Assalamu Alaikum, Alhamdulillah the other members have tried to explain why Pork is haram, I want to add something to what they already said, so that it may be more clearer to you inshaAllah.

 

The Quote below is just part of a longer article, I request the readers to check the link so that you get the whole picture and understand better. JazaakAllahu Khairan.

 

Bad effects of pork consumption

 

Pig's bodies contain many toxins, worms and latent diseases. Although some of these infestations are harbored in other animals, modern veterinarians say that pigs are far more predisposed to these illnesses than other animals. This could be because pigs like to scavenge and will eat any kind of food, including dead insects, worms, rotting carcasses, excreta (including their own), garbage, and other pigs.

 

Influenza (flu) is one of the most famous illnesses which pigs share with humans. This illness is harbored in the lungs of pigs during the summer months and tends to affect pigs and humans in the cooler months. Sausage contains bits of pigs' lungs, so those who eat pork sausage tend to suffer more during epidemics of influenza. Pig meat contains excessive quantities of histamine and imidazole compounds, which can lead to itching and inflammation; growth hormone, which promotes inflammation and growth; sulphur-containing mesenchymal mucus, which leads to swelling and deposits of mucus in tendons and cartilage, resulting in arthritis, rheumatism, etc.

 

Sulfur helps cause firm human tendons and ligaments to be replaced by the pig's soft mesenchymal tissues, and degeneration of human cartilage. Eating pork can also lead to gallstones and obesity, probably due to its high cholesterol and saturated fat content. The pig is the main carrier of the taenia solium worm, which is found it its flesh. These tapeworms are found in human intestines with greater frequency in nations where pigs are eaten. This type of tapeworm can pass through the intestines and affect many other organs, and is incurable once it reaches beyond a certain stage. One in six people in the US and Canada has trichinosis from eating trichina worms which are found in pork. Many people have no symptoms to warn them of this, and when they do, they resemble symptoms of many other illnesses. These worms are not noticed during meat inspections, nor are they killed by salting or smoking. Few people cook the meat long enough to kill the trichinae. The rat (another scavenger) also harbors this disease. There are dozens of other worms, germs, diseases and bacteria which are commonly found in pigs, many of which are specific to the pig, or found in greater frequency in pigs.
