2,The origin of Muslim dietary taboos
Islamic dietary regulations and why Muslims don’t eat pork
Many people have a lot of misunderstandings about Muslims not eating pork. The most common question is also often asked by them. Among them, some people think that Muslims do not eat because they respect pigs. Obviously this is absurd because they don't know Islam and Muslims.
If you still don’t understand, then look at the following description, you may be clearer. In ancient China, there was a knowledgeable scholar. His name was "Confucius." In the Shaoyi chapter of the ancient book "The Book of Rites" he admired, there is a sentence: "A gentleman does not eat pigeons." That is, gentlemen do not eat pork or dogs. The ritual of "denying oneself and restoring rituals" that Confucius has repeatedly pursued is based on the "Book of Rites" of the Zhou Dynasty. See it! If you want to know more about the philosophy of not eating, please keep reading!
Regarding edible food, Allah said in the "Quran": "People who believe in Allah! You can eat the good food I have provided you. Thank Allah if you only worship him."
Regarding prohibited foods, Allah said in the Quran: "He only forbids you to eat dead things, blood, pork, and animals that are not killed in the name of Allah."
also said: "People who believe in Allah! Drinking, gambling, idolatry, and asking for a lottery are acts of the devil, so stay away."
Islamic dietary regulations are based on the principle of Jiamei. The so-called "jiamei" refers to the "cleanliness and character" of the food in addition to the commonly understood color, shape, taste or nutritional nourishment. Muslims speak of "hygiene and hygiene". It can be described as "food to nourish nature". For example, all herbivorous animals have good nature and eat clean food, such as cows, sheep, and camels. And carnivorous animals with sharp teeth or fangs, or carrion-eating animals, are greedy and evil in nature, and they eat dirt, such as pigs, dogs, crows, etc.
Regarding prohibited food, the Quran mentions in principle "pigs, blood, wine, self-dead things, and animals slaughtered in the name of non-Allah". On this basis, the Prophet Muhammad further elaborated, and later Muslim jurists made some provisions on these two foundations, which constituted Muslim dietary precepts. Here, we only clarify the dietary precepts set forth in the Quran.
liqueur. The reason for the prohibition is that alcohol can make people temporarily lose their minds, become in a state of anaesthesia, and lose self-control over their own words and deeds, thus causing harm to themselves and others. This harm is not only physical and material to Muslims, but also The reason is that sometimes the loss of faith is caused by the loss of language and mental control. Therefore, the Quran strictly prohibits alcohol, and regards it and gambling as demonic behaviors that cause social harm, cause conflicts between people, and deteriorate interpersonal relationships. This was the case in ancient society in the past, and the world today is also the case. According to a newspaper report, 60% of the crimes committed by the youth gangster Douou in Shanghai were caused by alcoholism. Many divorce cases are also caused by a divorce of one party and the breakdown of the family. Some injuries caused by driving under the influence of alcohol are more related to alcohol. "Alcohol" is becoming a major social issue in some countries and regions, and the World Health Organization has also continuously increased its efforts to promote alcohol prohibition. But Islam has long banned alcohol and all foods that cause people to lose their senses after drinking, such as opium and heroin. As for some people asking about beer and other low-alcohol alcohol or drinking less, it is undoubtedly prohibited, because the law prohibits something based on its nature, and the question of quantity is only a matter of degree.
blood. Blood is regarded as the source of life in some religious scriptures and is forbidden to drink, such as the Old Testament. The prohibition of drinking blood in the Quran is also related to human health. The development of science and the invention of the microscope promoted the development of medicine. Observing blood through the microscope can detect countless types of germs.
3,What are the dietary taboos of Muslims
Muslims pay great attention to dietary choices and are very strict. Most of these dietary choices are related to religious doctrines. There are many things that Muslims fast, but there are four main ones: pork, suicidal animals, blood and wine.
4,Communication etiquette and main taboos of Arabs
can't talk with hands folded
When talking or facing each other, there is a habit in the Middle East and Near East countries: You cannot cross your hands. In Libya, if you move out of this set, you will be considered insulting the other party. In fact, in any country, speaking with your hands folded is considered "arrogant" or "impolite". In the Middle East and the Near East, this is taken more seriously and regarded as an "insult" or a "challenge."
Dolls cannot be gifts
Idol worship is strictly prohibited by Muslims. In countries in the Middle East, dolls and other objects that resemble human figures are forbidden to be used as decorations at home. Their explanation is: keeping them at home and watching them every day, over time, will form the result of "idol worship". Therefore, in these countries, you must not give a doll as a gift, otherwise you will be mistaken for despising their religion.
It is forbidden to wear clothes with star patterns
Egypt and Arab countries reacted strongly to people wearing star-patterned clothes, and they were very dissatisfied. The reason is that its political opponent, the Israeli flag, is patterned with stars. In addition to clothes, wrapping paper with star patterns is also unpopular.
Kuwait, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Afghanistan, Lebanon and other countries are forbidden in religion. For them, drinking is a direct path to evil. For believers who have become a habit of prohibiting alcohol, they should avoid giving alcohol to them, because this kind of behavior is tantamount to persuading him to break the precept and absolutely not to do it.
The national customs of the Arabs
clean right hand, unclean left hand
The Arabs eat very distinctively. They usually sit on the floor, break the bread into small pieces or pinch the rice into small balls, pinch them into the mouth with a few fingers of their right hand, even if it is a dish with soup, they can Eat it all. In fact, eating directly with your hands cannot be regarded as a "patent" exclusive to the Arabs. There are hundreds of millions of people in the world who eat with their hands, and their living range extends from northern Africa to the South Asian subcontinent. .
According to the living customs of Arabs, their right hand is always clean, so when eating, they must use their right hand to deliver food directly into the mouth instead of their left hand, because in their traditional concept, the left hand is unclean and can only be used Come to assist the right hand to tear the food. Even in daily work, Arabs use their right hands more. Local women are always busy working with their right hand, while their left hand is to tightly pinch the long cloth wrapped around their body under the armpit. The left hand is occasionally freed to help, and then suddenly retracted.
Why is the left hand unclean in the Arab concept? It turns out that Arabs never use toilet paper to clean them after going to the toilet, but they always use their left hand to wash them with clean water. Therefore, people who are new to Arab countries are puzzled by the lack of toilet paper in their hotel rooms, and at the same time are confused about the toilet in the bathroom. According to local doctors, the incidence of hemorrhoids among Arabs is extremely low, which has a lot to do with their habit.
In terms of receiving people and things, the right and left hands of Arabs are absolutely different from inside and outside. For external matters, such as delivering things to others, they must use their right hand, otherwise it would be extremely disrespectful, and it would be quite rude to others. Similarly, Arabs must use their right hand when picking up something delivered by others. Even if the right hand is busy, they must quickly free up their right hand to take it.
Arabic numerals and Arabic numerals
Speaking of the internationally used Arabic numerals, people will naturally think that it must have been created by the Arabs and used by the Arab nation. However, the facts are very different. This Arabic numeral is not that Arabic numeral. We have the right to replace the numbers used by Arabs with "Arab numbers" to show the difference.
In order to distinguish it from the regular Arabic numerals and to facilitate memory, some people have gradually found out a set of effective memory formulas in actual work and life: 1 or 1, 2 turns one turn, 3 turns two turns, 4 is the reverse writing 3, 5 is 0, 6 is 7, 7 is up and 8 down, 9 is still 9, and 0 is a point.
Like the Arabic numerals, the "Arab numerals" have a rigorous structure and a clear expression. They are still arranged in tens and hundreds, and can still count from one to ten, hundreds, thousands, ten thousand and even infinite. The numbers in the "Quran" are all described by "Arab numbers", and Arab numbers, arithmetic, etc. are also expressed by it. It is worth mentioning that the writing order of Arabic is from right to left, while "Arabic numbers" is the opposite, which is written from left to right. Therefore, when looking at something written by Arabs, one tends to look around to get it...
5,Taboos for Muslims
Which seafood can be eaten by Muslims? According to the revelation of Allah in the Quran: “Animals and food in the sea are legal for you and can be enjoyed by you and travelers.” (5:96) Some disciples asked the Prophet Prophet for advice. Eating fish and animals in the water, he replied: "If the water is clean (it can be used for purification worship), then the fish in the water should also be a legal food." The revelation and Hadith of the Quran are both There are no special taboos on aquatic food. We are convinced that Allah has not forgotten anything. Then, most scholars understand that Allah is tolerant and merciful to humans and can legally eat fish that grow naturally or artificially in purified water. And animals. This clean water includes oceans, rivers, lakes, and ponds. Muslims can choose among aquatic foods, including shell creatures such as shrimps, crabs, conch and shellfish. This is a rule left by many ancient great imams, such as Marek and Shafiyi, and their opinions are very positive, except for the loach. Imam Abu Hanini and his disciples have stricter regulations on aquatic food than other legal imams. They insist that only fish-shaped aquatic animals are allowed to be eaten. Shellfish, such as shrimps, crabs, turtles and shellfish. The dietary taboos of Muslims around the world are not exactly the same, many of which are local ethnic customs and habits. Whether food produced by non-Muslims is permitted to be eaten by Islamic producers or chefs who do not require food must be Muslims, such as vegetarian restaurants for Hindu or Buddhist believers. If all food ingredients and seasonings are vegan, Muslims can eat. According to this principle, Muslim restaurants can also hire non-Muslim chefs. They only need to train them in advance, understand the principles of halal food, and learn to respect Muslims. They do not have to convert to Islam and are allowed to serve Muslim customers. . If you are invited to a banquet by a non-Muslim friend and cannot refuse it, it is absolutely necessary, but you must declare to your friend that you are a Muslim, some eating habits are taboo, you are respected by your friends, and you can go to a friend’s home to participate banquet. If a friend’s house serves all kinds of guests, and there are non-halal food on the dinner table, just remind them to avoid using those foods, and Muslims can also have a table with everyone. If at the dinner table, Muslims’ eating ethics who promote Islamic dietary principles to non-Muslims are an opportunity for missions, at least it can help non-Muslim friends understand Islam and eliminate differences and misunderstandings. In non-halal restaurants or non-Muslim family banquets, Muslim guests can request that the cups and dishes are washed with clean water before they can be used, because "water is clean" and there is no contamination or mixing with non-halal food. In the age of the Prophet Muhammad, many disciples converted to Islam and became Muslims, but most of their relatives did not convert and were still non-Muslims. They returned to their hometowns to visit non-Muslim parents, relatives and friends. The Prophet’s Prophet allowed his disciples to eat and drink with their non-Muslim relatives. When eating, they only had to choose meals that were legally edible. In all of the above situations, strictly speaking, they are abnormal states, expressing tolerance, tolerance and kindness for various reasons, or succumbing to the pressure of violence or life-threatening hunger. Can Muslims participate in the production of non-halal meals? What ingredients contained in the medicine are not available. If the ingredients containing halamem (illegal) are not available, they can be used to treat diseases. It is forbidden to accompany Allah, no matter how big or small, obvious or hidden.
