Question:

Why do Christians freely consume pork and religious Jews don’t?
-Dr. Khalid Naseer

Answer:

The Bible - Leviticus

11:7 And the swine, ----; he is unclean to you.

11:8 Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; ----. [The Quran does not go to extremes. It only forbids the eating of pork]

11:12 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you. [The Mullahs pronounce the shellfish detestable]

Book of Acts in New Testament, chapter 10:9-10 (Summary)

[10:9-10 St Peter sees a dream that all quadrupeds, insects and birds are permissible for consumption.]


But the Qur’an categorically forbids the consumption of pork:

16:115 He only prohibits for you the dead animal, blood, and swine-flesh and anything that has been dedicated to other than God….. [6:144]

5:96 Lawful to you is all water-game. This is decent provision for you and for those who are traveling (to Hajj) by sea. Do not pursue land-game during Pilgrimage…. [Bahr = Sea = River = Any body of water]
