Then why are the fishes allowed? They too don't hava a 'neck'.

I think pig is not allowed because it gather its food by pouncing/swooping on its prey. It, sort of, snatches its food.

As far as I know, it is forbidden in Islam to eat such animals because it is thought that those who eat them will also start behaving like those animals (i.e, will also start acting greedily and snatching what belongs to others.)

 
 
so..... chicken never snatch food from other chicken?? and fish never fight to get food?? pigs nowadays do not have preys. their only prey is the food that is serve right in front of them. I definitely would like to see pigs that pounce on others

i'm new here.... I'm a budhist chinese, and well, i don't eat beef. I was told by my mom that since I was a baby, cow fed me with its milk. That is why i don't eat them. its kind of like a family culture. so, even if you ask a musllim why they don't eat pork, its the same reason. because they are taught so. most of my malays friend (muslim) does not wear like a muslim suppose to be according to 'them'. the only thing they do according to the rules is, they never eat pork.

muslim have their logic on why they do not eat pork... but why can't they touch them??
 
just curious.
