  • Eating Meat

    taken from sunniforum

    From the Al-Muwatta of Imam Malik Ibn Anas:

    49.11 Eating Meat
    36 Yahya related to me from Malik from Yahya ibn Sa'id that 'Umar ibn al-Khattab said, "Beware of meat. It has addictiveness like the addictiveness of wine."

    Please see additional fatwas here:

    1. There's no requirement whatsoever to eat meat in Islam. Of course meat is halal and you can't say it's haram although eating too much meat is reprehensible (makruh). It's also been proven that eating large amounts of red meat habitually will dramatically increase your risk to a variety of diseases including heart disease and cancer. There is also mountains of evidence that a diet free of meat or with very little meat can vastly improve your health and cut your risk for many diseases including cancer, heart disease and diabetes which are the leading causes of death.

    Brothers and Sisters I encourage you to educate yourself on this important topic and work to change your lifestyle for your health and for the planet which we are caretakers of.

    I find that one of the healthiest diets you can is semi-vegan/vegetarian, limiting your intake of meat, seafood and dairy to only occasionally or not at all.

    This type of diet, combined with moderate exercise and relaxation techniques, has been clinically proven to lower the risk of and even reverse heart disease and diabetes.

    Not only that but with this diet you don't have to worry about eating anything haram because you'll be avoiding most processed foods and things that could be haram.

    I've been on this diet, which is really a lifestyle program, for awhile now and I feel great! I know that it may be hard for some Pakistanis, Arabs and Americans who eat meat with almost every meal but everybody knows how horrible that is for you!

    It's also sunnah to eat meat only once a week, or even less!

    Here's some more information:

    Benefits:

    The Ornish diet, when used in a holistic treatment program, has been shown to lower blood cholesterol levels and reverse atherosclerosis, or obstruction of the arteries, making it a dietary therapy for heart disease, strokes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. The Ornish diet has also been shown to be an effective weight loss program, and is recommended as a preventive measure for heart disease, strokes, diabetes and other conditions related to high fat consumption. The Ornish diet is an easy and inexpensive form of treatment as well as a preventive measure.

    Dr. Dean Ornish
    The Life Choice Diet


    The Life Choice Diet is a low-fat vegetarian way of eating with less than 10% calories from fat (for most people, this would be a diet with 15 to 25 grams of fat per day). The focus is on beans, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, with processed foods and nonfat dairy products consumed in moderation. Simple sugars and alcohols, like fat, are to be avoided.

    Guidelines -- "all you really need to know"
    You can eat the following foods whenever you feel hungry until you are full (but not until you are stuffed):

    * Beans and legumes (lentils, kidney beans, peas, black beans, red Mexican beans, split peas, soybeans, black-eyed peas, garbanzos, navy beans, and so on)
    * Fruits (apples, apricots, bananas, strawberries, cherries, blueberries, oranges, peaches, raspberries, cantaloupes, watermelons, pears, honeydew melons, pineapples, tomatoes, and so on)
    * Grains (corn, rice, oats, wheat, millet, barley, buckwheat, and so on)
    * Vegetables (potatoes, zucchini, broccoli, carrots, lettuce, mushrooms, eggplant, celery, asparagus, onions, sweet potatoes, spinach, and so on)

    You can eat the following foods in moderation:


    * Nonfat dairy products, including skim milk, nonfat yogurt, nonfat cheeses, nonfat sour cream, and egg whites
    * Nonfat or very low-fat commercially available products, including whole grain breakfast cereals, Health Valley chili (and many other Health Valley products), Kraft Free nonfat mayonnaise and salad dressings, Guiltless Gourmet tortilla chips, Quaker Oats oatmeal, Nabisco fat-free crackers, Fleishmann's Egg Beaters, Pritikin soups.

    Read labels. Some of the nonfat or very low-fat commercially available products are high in sugar, so avoid these when possible. Ingredients are listed on food labels in order of the amount contained in that food. In other words, if the first ingredient is sugar, then there's more sugar than anything else in that food. Also, on most packages you'll find the number of grams of fat, the number of calories, and the amount of cholesterol.

    Here are the foods to avoid as much as possible:

    * Meats (all kinds, including chicken and fish)
    * Oils (all kinds) and oil-containing products, including margarines and most salad dressings
    * Avocados
    * Olives
    * Nuts and seeds
    * High-fat or "low-fat" dairy, including whole milk, yogurt, butter, cheese, egg yolks, cream, and so on
    * Sugar and simple sugar derivatives (honey, molasses, corn syrup, high fructose syrup, and the like)
    * Alcohol
    * Any commercially available product with more than two grams of fat per serving

    Re: Eating Meat

    Excellent :up: Remember when I used to only eat meat on Fridays? :o Everyone should do that, its a brillaint idea:D
    What does 'freedom' mean?

    Does the eagle want to swim in the sea,
    Restricted by the sky?

    Does the fish want to dance on the wind,
    Not enough river to explore?

    Yet the sky is freedom for the bird
    but death for the fish,

    The sea is wide for the fish
    but will engulf the bird.

    We ask for freedom but freedom to do what?
    We can only express our nature as it was created.

    The prayer mat of the earth is freedom,
    freedom from slavery to other than the One,
    Who offers an shoreless ocean of love to swim in
    and a horizon that extends to the next life,
    Yet we chose the prison and call it freedom.

      alhamdulillah only eat meat on eid ul adha or on very rare occasions
      The enforcement of Muslim Brotherhood is the greatest social ideal of Islam. On it was based the Prophet's (SAW) sermon on his last pilgrimage, and Islam cannot be completely realized until this ideal is achieved. '

                      i know some people who think if you're a vegetarian, then you are sinning, because the Prophet :saw: ate meat

                            Meat generally can lead to lethargy - esp if eaten alot of.

                            I dont like it so dont eat it, chicken i can have 2-3 times a week but no more than that :-|

                            Prefer my veg, rice and fish :up:
                            You are not aware of the consequences that would result (if you were granted what you desire) because what you seek might be to your detriment. (O soul) be conscious that your Master is more aware about your well-being than you are.
