Wow lots of things you want to do but if anyone can do it I know you can and I'll be by your side supporting you.

Huda said...

Yay for the 101 things! We should go makeup shopping sometime since makeup is on both our lists. And I recommend a highlighter for Islam as it's also a difficult book to read — very textbooky, although she makes some interesting points, especially at the end.

You are always remindind that you are Muslim so how come you are eating Non Halal Meat.

P.S. I am a born Muslim too but a progressive one, so I don't have any problem with any kind of food.

Curious thanks for visiting. i'm not trying to remind the general public that I am Muslim. I just am, and it shows up in my writing. We write based on our experiences, and you'll see that my writing also discusses education and law as well.... who I am will reflect in my writing... at least my writing does so.

Burger Delight is actually owened by a very sweet Bengali man and his food is Zabiha.

But that's besides the point, I eat there because i enjoy the food and not becaues its zabiha. I will gladly eat a chicken sandwhich at Chili's too.

I'm not trying to remind people that I'm Muslim. It's who I am and so it shows up in my writing. Like you I don't believe that zabiha meat is the only HALAL meat... I dont like the distinction. the opposite of halal meat would then be haram meat and I dont believe non zabiha meat is haraam.

But anyhow, we all have our views on religion and about meat eating preferences. I choose to agree to disagree on things.

Curious said...

What do you think Prophet Muhammad used to eat before the age of Forty?

Halal/Zabiha has same meaning, Renaming the word dosen't change its meaning.
