NON-VEGETARIAN FOOD MAKES MUSLIMS VIOLENT
Science tell us that
whatever one eats, it has an effect on one’s behaviour. Why then, does Islam
allow Muslims to eat non-vegetarian food, since eating of animals could make a
person violent and ferocious?
1. Only eating of herbivorous animals allowed

"The Prophet commands them

assigns to you and deny yourselves that which he withholds from you."
[Al-Qur’an 59: 7]

(pbuh) prohibited the eating of:
