I’ve been told that Bible prohibits the eating of pork. Their proof is: the book of Leviticus, ch 11, v. 7, it is recorded that God declares the pig to be unclean for believers. Then, in verse 8, God says: “You must not eat their meat or touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you.” This command is repeated in Deuteronomy 14:7-8. Then in Isaiah 65:2-4, and 66:17, God issues a stern warning against those who eat pork. Some people are aware of this prohibition from God, but they say they can eat pork because St. Paul said that all food is clean in his letter to the Romans 14:20. St. Paul sid this because he believed (as he wrote in his letter to the Ephesians 2:14-15) that Jesus had abolished the Law with all its commandments and regulations.He seems, however, to have misunderstood what he heard about Jesus. In the Gospel According to Matthew 5:17-20, Jesus is reported to have said quite the contrary, as follows: “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law…” Jesus then went on in that passage (in verse 19) to denounce anyone who would break the smallest commandment and teach others likewise. He also praised his true followers who will practice and teach even the smallest commandment. One of the commandments, as we have seen, is to stay away from pork. This is why the true followers of Jesus, holding on to his teachings, did not let unclean food such as pork enter their mouths, so that Peter, the chief disciple can say, “I have never eaten anythng impure or unclean” (Acts of the Apostles, ch 10, v. 14). Five chapters later in the Acts of the Apostles, 15:29, we find that the original disciples still differentiate between clean and unclean foods, and this time Paul is in agreement with them.Six chapters later, in ch. 21, v 25, their decision to impose food regulations on believers is mentioned without regret, and this time Paul is challenged to prove that he is in agreement with them; and he demonstrated his full agreement with them. What remains, then is that Jesus (on whom be peace) upheld the prohibition against pork. His disciples also upheld it. What i want to know is this right or not?
"There is nothing wrong, as far as Islam is concerned, in eating horses' meat after they are slaughtered according to the Islamic manner.
There are so many hadiths which state that eating horses' meat is halal. Asma' Bint Abi Bakr (may Allah be pleased with her) said: 'We slaughtered a mare, during the lifetime of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and we ate it.' (Reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
Among those who maintain that eating horses' meat is halal are Al-Qadi Shurayh, Al-Hassan Al-Basri, `Atta', Sa`id Ibn Jubayr, Al-Layth Ibn Sa`d, Sufyan Ath-Thawri, Abu-Yusuf, Muhammad Ibn Al-Hassan, Abu-Thawr and many others.
On the other hand, Imam Malik, Al-Awza`i and Imam Abu Hanifah maintain that eating horses is reprehensible (makruh) but its reprehensibility does not amount to the category of haram. They back their argument by citing the hadith mentioned in Sunan of An-Nassa'i, in which the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) forbade his Companions (may Allah be pleased with them all) from eating horses, mules and donkeys. They also cite the following Qur'anic verse in support of their view:
'And horses and mules and asses (has He created) that you may ride them, and for ornament. And He creates that which you know not.' (An-Nahl: 8)
However, Imam Shafi`i maintains that the aforementioned verse is not related to the permissibility of eating horses or otherwise. The verse is cited, he says, in the context of showing Allah's Blessings, His Clear Signs, His Eternal Wisdom and His Omnipotence.
In addition, Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal states that the hadith cited by Imam Malik and Imam Abu Hanifah and those who adopt their view has a weak isnad (chain of narrators) as there are two men in its chain of narrators who are unknown. Hence, this weak hadith cannot overrule the other one, which is authentic.
In short, eating horses is permissible according to most scholars and schools of Fiqh."
Here in Sri Lanka, the Muslims who eat crabs, consume only "sea crabs" but not "lagoon crabs" – probably because the ones found in lagoons are not really sea creatures. However, it's the lagoon crabs that are bigger and tastier, and make an excellent curry. Now you're talking!!! CRAB LEGS!!! No butter, I hate butter and no sauce; just plain crab.
Isn't the lagoon crab also a salt water crab?
It's true that the Bengalis are so fond of fish (especially "Betti" fish), Can you get the scientific name or a picture of a "Betti" fish? that its Brahmins accept it as some kind of "vegetable" so that it's permissible to eat!

OK, Back To the Bible! Well, the Seventh Day Adventists (and there are quite a few in this country) insist that a person who follows the books of Moses/Mossa/Moshe, should be a vegetarian. One of over 1500 Christian denominations in North America. I have only met a few SDA's; they were nice people. I just have trouble with their "doomsday" views.
The lagoon crabs live more inland, in what the old folks refer to as "brackish water" – a mixture of salt and fresh ("sweet") water, with a lot of decaying vegetable matter from the mangroves. The crabs are almost totally bottom dwelling and are usually hand-caught using traps in shallow waters. They are true scavengers. On the other hand, sea crabs live out in the sea, usually near coral reefs or rocks.
"Betty", I spelled it wrong, it's "bekti" fish – the "rice puller" of the Bengali.
