Muslim Man Found Pork In His McDonald’s And Absolutely Lost His Mind!
There is someone at my church that converted to Christianity about ten years ago that his parents were Muslim and he immigrated to the United States when he was a young boy.
I get into conversations with this guy a lot and naturally have questions about the minutia of certain things about how Islam is supposed to work on paper.
Now, one of the more interesting things that he said once was on the abstinence when it came to eating pork. He told me about this during our recent church barbecue.
I asked him if pork is supposed to be some kind of forbidden thing what happens if someone is eating and they realize for whatever reason that they are eating pork.
He told me that they were supposed to immediately stop eating what they were eating and throw it away. They then apparently wash their hands and brush their teeth to get the taste out.
Now, while not eating pork is kind of a silly notion to begin with you would think that stopping eating it would be about as logical as a step as you could get someone that doesn’t eat pork for religious reasons to take.
A Muslim man has filed a formal complaint against McDonald’s for what he found in his wrap sandwich.
Amir Ali, 37, a father and practicing Muslim complained: “But I took a bite and something else was in my mouth. I thought it was lettuce because I’ve never tasted bacon. I took it out and thought ‘God, that’s bacon. Everyone makes mistakes but something like this is very serious. I’m worried about my children going now.”
That is better than the recent reports of traces of feces found in UK fast food and coffee shops, including McDonald’s in recent weeks. But to a Muslim, pork is forbidden.
Why do Muslims abstain from pork? The prohibition of pork in Islam is derived from the following verse of the Glorious Qur’an: “Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine, and that on which hath been invoked the name of other than Allah.” [Al-Qur’an 5:3]
