Fish and eggs are also halal. All products from pork, carrion and blood are forbidden haram , as are all types of alcohol. In Britain Muslims buy their meat from a Muslim butcher whenever possible. A Muslim does not eat generally available meat or food that contains animal fats, in case it contains pork fat or fat from other animals not ritually slaughtered.
Fish and eggs must be kept strictly separate from meat during preparation. Unless absolutely sure that all food is halal, when away from home many Muslims will follow a vegetarian diet. Pakistanis and Arabs like their food well seasoned and spiced, and may find bland food unpalatable. Muslims fast during the month of Ramadan the date varies each year. At this time Muslims will not eat or drink between dawn and sunset.
The sick, infirm or very old need not fast. Fasting is also excused during menstruation, for 40 days after childbirth, while breastfeeding or during a long journey. However, some Muslims will choose to fast even if ill and you should try to accommodate this. This means providing adequate and acceptable meals during the hours of darkness and, wherever possible, adjusting medication to fit in with the fast. If the doctor says a patient should eat and drink more, you should explain to the patient that this is part of the medicine to assist recovery.
It is important to recognise that a decision to fast is based on different priorities, not on ignorance or being unco-operative. Muslims attach great importance to cleanliness. They must have running water from a tap or poured from a jug in toilets, as they consider toilet paper inadequate; if a bedpan has to be used a container of clean water should accompany it.
Muslims prefer to wash in free-flowing water, and cannot accept the idea of sitting in a bath. Ablution before each prayer is necessary. The worshipper washes their hands and face, rinses their mouth, cleans their nostrils, washes their arms up to the elbows, wets the hands and runs them through the hair, cleans inside and behind the ears and lastly washes their feet up to the ankles — each of these three times.
After menstruation women must wash their whole bodies. It is regarded as unclean to eat or perform religious ceremonies using the same hand that is used for toileting purposes.
Generally a Muslim woman is not allowed to be examined or surrounded by male members of medical staff. It is always preferable that a female member of the medical staff is present. In certain cases a Muslim woman may not agree to be examined or treated at all by a male staff member.
In Islam free mixing of sexes is prohibited and there should be no physical contact between a woman and any man except her husband. Muslims should be accommodated in mixed wards only in emergencies. A Muslim woman may find it difficult to accept an X-ray gown because it is short.
Many Muslim women wear a headscarf when out in public the hijab and some Muslim women will also choose to be fully covered with only their eyes and hands showing burka. You should show sensitivity to the needs of Muslim women to dress appropriately.

A dying Muslim will wish to lie on their right side facing Makkah the Qibla. Familiar people can give comfort by reading to the patient verses from the Qur'an. It is an important religious duty to visit the sick and dying, so a large number of visitors may arrive at all hours. Should a baby die at or after four months of pregnancy or soon after birth, he or she will be named, washed, shrouded and buried in the usual manner.
If the foetus dies before four months of pregnancy, then it should be wrapped in a clean cloth and buried. It is customary among Pakistanis and Arabs to express their emotion freely when a relative dies. Whenever possible you should give them privacy to do so; and explain gently but firmly the need to avoid disturbing other patients by their mourning.

If that is so, the state may have an obligation to treat all people fairly. He can either have vegetarian meals or bring his own. On that point, I side with you. So, the company should have rules that Muslims can use it for 15 minutes and then put everything back to where it was. There is no reason to let the Muslims occupy the entire room for the whole day. Hijab is not exactly a religious symbol. I have never been in favor of banning religious symbols. You should have the freedom to wear a cross any time, any place.

It seems to me your problem is with radical secularism rather than with Muslims. Police Uniform: Not sure what you mean. Is it the scarf issue again? Do you have the same issue with Sikhs wearing a turban? Shariah Laws: My problem with your comment is that most people who are against Shariah cannot define it. Often, what they think is part of Shariah is clearly not. However, the part of Shariah that some Western Muslims do want is related to marriage, divorce and inheritance laws, which do not really affect non-Muslims.
See also my section, Shariah Laws on this web page. Well I see cases of women who refuse to take off their face and head covering even in court — This is unacceptable — You should not have the right to hide your identity in court or when boarding a plane or any other public transport system. What if someone started a religion that said men should wear a balaclava — would you feel safe with men having their faces completely covered? Of course not, neither do I feel safe when a totally face covered person boards the plane without having been totally checked, and I have had to board planes like that.
They just let those ladies with their face covered on the plane to prevent trouble with being called racist. Covering the face has very little to do with Islam, and in fact during Haj, the annual pilgrimage, women are actually forbidden to cover their face! Your ability to clarify the issues that were brought up with such grace is commendable. It seems a constant that people confuse culture and religion. Whatever the reason, ignorance and oppression is not the answer.
This site is such an admirable endeavor. My father was a Muslim and mother a Protestant Christian.

Our father never forbade us to visit a Church, though, my paternal family being Muslim, we followed a lot of Muslim cultural activities and festivals. My mother passed away last year and I got her buried in a Christian graveyard, as was her wish. Recently, my sister got married to a Catholic and is very happy. The point of all this is that there are all kind of Muslims in the world. Unfortunately, there is only a certain kind which is depicted in popular media. This site is a great help to understanding this religion better — for Muslims and Non-Muslims alike.

And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers [Quran ] Explanation If somebody is persecuting and fighting a group of people, they have a right to resist or fight back.
The next two verses say: [2. So if they desist, Muslims should do the same. Share this: Twitter Facebook. Like this: Like Loading Pete Frens February 2, at am Reply.
