Salam sister or brother,

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.

It is not permissible to keep a pig because it is an animal that is impure in itself, Allaah Says when mentioning the forbidden matters (what means): {…or the flesh of swine (pork, etc.) for that surely is impure.}[Quran 6:145] The view that the pig is impure in itself is a matter of consensus among the scholars . The fact that the pig is small or that it is a pet animal is not a sound reason for keeping it, so you should get rid of it by killing it. The Prophet said: "(I swear) By him in Whose Hands my soul is, the son of Mary (Jesus) will shortly descend amongst you people (Muslims) as a just ruler and will break the Cross and kill the pig and abolish the Jizyah (a tax taken from the non-Muslims who are in the protection of the Muslim government).” [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim] An-Nawawi said: ‘This narration is evidence for the chosen opinion of our School of jurisprudence which is the view of the majority of the scholars that if we find a pig in non-Muslim countries or any other country, and we are able to kill it, then we should kill it, and the view that it [the pig] should be left if it does not cause harm is rejected.’ Since you know that you are obliged to kill the pig, then there is no point in discussing the issue of (benefiting from) its droppings.Allah knows best.

Yes, I liked it. I think Brother Faisal's comments were justified in retaliation.

Mike these people mock you because you did the same to them. But if you desist, turn to Allah, follow your heart and think it through, and consider the evidence then surely you will conclude Islam is indeed true. Follow up your belief with righteous deeds and you will have paradise and an unending reward.

How nice will it be to be at paradise and to be in God's love? No more toil, no more sadness. No more denying the truth. No more opposition.

If you feel saddened by these responses,know that these very same people will become your brothers and sisters and will rejoice at your good.

A trnsln of a verse came to my mind for you.I dont know why

O Prophet! Say to the captives that are in your hands: "If Allah knows any good in your hearts,He will give you something better than what has been taken from you,and He will forgive you, and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."

But if they intend to betray you(O Muhammad), they have already betrayed Allah before. So He gave (you) power over them. And Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise.

Mike if you can't answer people question then please don't start a chart room on other people question because their may not like it. I would strongly advice you if you don't want to follow the rules then please do find other site who would like you to post non sense. Moderator and admin has given you a lots of warning but you still carry in with your non sense.
