salam,

I was going to title this thread "Would you marry..... a vegetarian?" but I think we have enough of those threads... lol


Imam Zaid sent this out a few days ago:

Agreed, we Muslims must begin limiting our consumption of meat and fish. Our Prophet, peace upon him, discouraged excessive consumtion of meat. Unfortunately, many Muslims eat several varieties of meat during a single meal. My wife and myself are committed to eating both meat and fish only once a month. The meat industrial complex is contributing to the destruction of our environment, and our fish stocks are on the verge of depletion. We invite you to join us in this stand for the environment.

Yep ONCE a month!!

Really could not do that in my household where if there's no meat everyone considers it 'not a real meal'!! But definitely think we should change our mindset but... is scary non??

We can do vegetarian once or twice a week.  But I think that is about as far as my family can go...

Walaikum ASalaam!

I definitely know what you guys mean about our families thinking it's not a real meal without meat! Not only is our enviornment affected but so are our bodies! Apparently the horomones in chicken are no good :/ and we mostly eat chicken!

LOL  Cheesy


Yeh.I think we have  got accustomed to eating meat almost every day.A day or two without meat is ok,but then we immediately  hit back to eating non-vegetarian  food  as if we haven't had proper food at all.

My family has taken to eating less meat recently,in a step to switch to a healthy diet.So there are days when the  wholesome meals of just meat are  avoided. Yet we use some amount of non-vegetarian food to atleast cook the vegetables in the ' non-veg stock'.So the taste of non-veg is  retained in the vegetarian dishes.
