Why is Camel meat allowed when it was forbidden in the Torah ?

Hi Jesus,

Welcomed to the board.  I ask Allah Almighty that you'll find your answers here, and that GOD Almighty Guide you to Islam.  Ameen.

Regarding your question, the following are the possible answers:

Note:  Keep in mind that the New Testament allows for camel meat and all meats.
 

1-  We can't always really for sure speak on behalf of GOD Almighty, and know for sure why He, the Almighty, allowed and forbade things.

2-  The lower half of the cattles (because it's fatty) is also forbidden in Judaism.

3-  Sea food with shells such as shrimp, lobster are also forbidden in Judaism.

4-  Pork meat is also forbidden in Judaism.

5-  And yes, camel meat is also forbidden in Judaism.

Allah Almighty Said in the Glorious Quran:

‏6:146 وعلى الذين هادوا حرمنا كل ذي ظفر ومن البقر والغنم حرمنا عليهم شحومهما الا ماحملت ظهورهما او الحوايا او مااختلط بعظم ذلك جزيناهم ببغيهم وانا لصادقون 

[006:146]  For those who followed the Jewish Law, We forbade every (animal) with undivided hoof, and We forbade them that fat of the ox and the sheep, except what adheres to their backs or their entrails, or is mixed up with a bone: this in recompense for their wilful disobedience: for We are true (in Our ordinances).

So why is camel meat then allowed in Islam?  The following are the possible answers:

1-  Camel meat might've been forbidden upon the Jews as a punishment for them.

2-  In the unforgiving desert of Arabia, where water is scarce and temperatures are unbarable to a point where you couldn't even stand on the sand bare-footed without getting a second or third degree burn, camels are the only animals that could truly live and endure such environment.

3-  Camels are the only animals that could travel for a very very long time (months) without water, in the very hot and unforgiving desert of Arabia, and still survive and live for long years.

4-  Camels were simply made for the desert and the desert people.  Horses and donkies are no match.  They don't even come close.

5-  A camel in Arabia can serve as a horse or a donkey for transportations, travel and even wars, and it can also serve as a cow or cattle for milk and meat.  They're also very big and thick-boned.  Their skin is thick and strong, and can be used for all kinds of clothings, matrices, making tents, and much more.  Their bones can also be used as tools and even weapons.

Camels are truly fascinating animals.  Without them, life in the desert would be virtually impossible!  They're also very very strong animals.  I saw a on youtube how an entire car was put on a camel's back, and he was able to carry it for a long distance:

It is truly the desert's ship as mankind all over the world nicknames this animal.  So it is only normal for Allah Almighty, the GOD Almighty of Mercy, to allow for the Arabs to eat camel meat for their daily needs and survivals.  Please visit:

I hope that this helps, insha'Allah.  Good question Jesus, and I look forward to interacting with you.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

You mean the silly picture about the Arab man and woman that was made by Islamophobes?  You can post it again.  I'll allow it.  People should see how silly atheists and islamophobes can get.

How was it islamophobic? It was stereotypical of the Arabs, not Islamophobic.

Silly? Hahah. We're not the ones out on the streets like the Westboro Baptist church holding up signs like "God hates fags" and stuff. Oh and btw, Islamophobic is not a word. Just saying.
