With all due respect to ……. It is clear that for “DEAD MEAT”, OUR ONLY GOD, intended animal that died or are dead before they are killed in the name of OUR ONLY GOD.
What I fail to understand why so many literate people are spending in trying to find or construct mistakes in THE BOOK. To me it make sense not to eat any meat that has derived from any animal that died of dubious causes, or that is putrefied. Then as far as eating pig, as I believe 100% in OUR ALLAH, I have no problem in keeping away from what is clearly mentioned in THE BOOK.
Anything we do is our personal choice, OUR ONLY GOD, gave us complete freedom, I choose to follow Allah, that was my choice and I am very happy to do so.
I am certain that Allah knew well what to tell the various Messengers, The Message is very clear to me, satan has very little power on me. I personally would not eat a ham sandwich and I love a halal beef steak sandwich!
I hope that one day you too will see the straight path to Allah.
Two good verses of THE BOOK!
2.173. But He forbade/prohibited on you animals whose death was caused by suffocation or strangulation/dead, and the blood, and the pig's/swine's meat/flesh, and what is praised/declared to whom the sacrifice was made with it to other than God, so who was forced, not transgressing/corrupting and nor transgressing/violating so no sin/crime on him, that God (is) forgiving most merciful.
5:3 He has forbidden you only carrion (any animal that dies by itself), and blood, and swine flesh, and anything --- (not just meat) --- that has been dedicated to any other than Allah (be it any person, an ancestor, a saint, an idol or a tomb. But, he who is compelled out of necessity, neither craving nor indulging in excess, it is not a dragging violation for him. Behold, Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
