- Why is killing and eating certain animals allowed when we have enough supply of vegetarian food?
I agree that in desert area absence of vegetation and agriculture makes eating livestocks a necessary item for survival. But today it can be totally avoided as and where circumstances permits. Our Quran prohibits eating dead animals, blood and swine and other things which also have been proved by scientific evidence are detrimental to health. It has also been proved that humans are herbivores according to human biology and eating of meat products in long term causes various ailment.
My additional questions are:
Are animal created for the sole purpose of eating, unlike mankind and jinns, they don't have any purpose in life? (references needed)
Are we not eating meat for the purpose of taste/luxury rather than necessity?
Is it not possible that Quran allowed to eat halal meat (which does not have major impact on health) since vegetation where absent in desert areas of Arabian peninsula and middle east?
