He has forbidden you only the Maitah (dead animals), and blood, and the flesh of swine, and that which is slaughtered as a sacrifice for others than God (or has been slaughtered for idols). But if one is forced by necessity, without wilful disobedience, nor transgressing due limits, then there is no sin on him. Truly, God is Oft-forgiving Most Merciful. [2:...

Islam is a very forgiving religion. One of the main issues that addresses your question is the principle that you are only a sinner if you sin intentionally and knowingly. That is, you sin if: You do something sinful (like eating pork) With full knowledge that it is a sinful act, and Still intentionally do it There are caveats. For example, if you are ...

To answer the question succinctly, the Prophet (sal Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said: "Certainly, Allah has pardoned for me my ummah: their mistakes, their forgetfulness, and that which they have been forced to do under duress" [ibn Majah, Bayhaqi] "Mistakes" in this case means you ate the pork mistakenly (not knowing what it was). It won't be a sin ...

I am a little alarmed that you are panicking about "sins" you made as a child! What kind of monster do you think God is? First of all, a sin is only a sin if you intended to make that sin, knowing what you were doing, which can hardly apply to your recent misfortune, least of all when you were a child. Innama al a3malou bin-nyiate : the deeds require ...

Asalamu wa alaikum, As ashes999 said above you are a sinner only if you sin intentionly. Allah says: قُل لَّآ أَجِدُ فِى مَآ أُوحِىَ إِلَىَّ مُحَرَّمًا عَلَىٰ طَاعِمٍ۬ يَطۡعَمُهُ ۥۤ إِلَّآ أَن يَكُونَ مَيۡتَةً أَوۡ دَمً۬ا مَّسۡفُوحًا أَوۡ لَحۡمَ خِنزِيرٍ۬ فَإِنَّهُ ۥ رِجۡسٌ أَوۡ فِسۡقًا أُهِلَّ لِغَيۡرِ ٱللَّهِ بِهِۦ‌ۚ فَمَنِ ٱضۡطُرَّ غَيۡرَ بَاغٍ۬ ...

Pork is unclean (najis) and najis is transferred through wetness: A thing (such as your hand, clothes, etc.) becomes najis only when it comes in contact with a najis thing with wetness that can be transferred and that can be felt when touched. -- Maulana Sadiq Hasan (pdf) It's probable that the pork-removed sandwich remains najis, and shouldn't be eaten. ...

First of all it ought to be paid attention that there can be found many items that Allah made it haram, but there are not complete explanation about all the reasons. Secondly it doesn’t to be considered as the reason as what you pointed out “Were pigs made haram because they were going to be extinct?” Thirdly there would definitely be one or even many ...

As Dynamic provided the Ayah: He has forbidden you only the Maitah (dead animals), and blood, and the flesh of swine, and that which is slaughtered as a sacrifice for others than God (or has been slaughtered for idols).

Whether or not he needs to, it won't hurt if he does it anyway. It's just a matter of saying two lines and meaning them in your heart. Tell him to say it anyway, just in case, although this isn't really a matter of "if he doesn't say it he's not a muslim". The best he can do is repent to Allah (SWT), and InShaAllah he will be forgiven.

Eating pork is Haram in Islam and helping in a sin is prohibited in the holy Quran: ...وَتَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْبِرِّ‌ وَالتَّقْوَىٰ ۖ وَلَا تَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْإِثْمِ وَالْعُدْوَانِ ۚ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ ۖ إِنَّ اللَّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ ...

Take the following verses from the Holy Qur'an: "O you who have believed, eat from the good things which We have provided for you and be grateful to Allah if it is [indeed] Him that you worship.

Under any circumstances, the answer is the same. The forbiddance of both alcohol and swine is well established in Islam and is not contextual; hence, no specific fatwa is required. Any act that one does to assist oneself or someone else to obtain or consume any such forbidden items is a cooperation on sin and transgression that Allah has commanded us not to ...

If you do an evil in ignorance and return as soon as you learned Allah will forgive. As stated in the Qur'an (an-Nisa:17): إِنَّمَا التَّوْبَةُ عَلَى اللَّهِ لِلَّذِينَ يَعْمَلُونَ السُّوءَ بِجَهَالَةٍ ثُمَّ يَتُوبُونَ مِن قَرِيبٍ فَأُولَٰئِكَ يَتُوبُ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِمْ ۗ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ عَلِيمًا حَكِيمًا (نساء/17) God shall turn only towards ...

No, it's not a sin. You had the intention to not eat anything that's deemed haram and made sincere effort (by ordering vegetarian meal believe it contains nothing haram) to not do that. Therefore since it was not because of your carelessness that you had a meal that had a pork/haram ingredient in it, it's not a sin. One of Ali's quotes: Lo, verily ...

Assalaamu alaikum warehmatullahi wabarkatuhu There are many, innumerable reasons when Allah creates a creature or being every individual has his own purpose to serve.

Many people have tried to give reason to Allah subhana wa-ta'ala's decree that pigs are haram. Your scholars claim, though I respect it, doesn't seem to have any basis. The domestication of pigs had been studied. And this study does not appear to mention any population decline at any point actual or that pigs were ever threatened. Pigs are omnivores and ...

The disbelievers are commanded to stay away from pork as well, just as they have been commanded by Allah to follow the truth of Islam and all it's rulings.

No you can't eat it - you have to be wary of contamination. Plus your Muslim friend isn't very knowledgable at all because the steak wouldn't be halal either! It is VERY important to eat food that is halal and tayyib so I suggest you educate yourself and your friend immediately. This link is a guide for "Muslims in Britain" for Muslims and non Muslims but ...

Yes you can build mosque there, in case of any such things being found even in a built mosque, we just wash away NAJAS things and its clear.

Walaykum Assalam Do not worry, as Allah(swt) forgives all as long as one asks for forgiveness and repents!

Pigs are haram to eat (Qur'an 2:173) and are regarded as unclean (see What things are considered najis in fiqh?). However, a piggy bank is not a pig.

Pork from pigs are not allowed, even if its slaughtered in a "halal" way, so don't buy them.
