“Halal” in Islam means permissible or lawful. The term is frequently used in conjunction with food that is permissible based on the Qur’an or Hadith. The opposite of halal is “haram,” meaning forbidden or unlawful. Examples of prohibited foods include pork, blood, alcoholic beverages, and improperly sacrificed, permitted animals. Animals are considered halal only if their throats have been properly slit in the name of Allah by a Muslim. Animals that are slaughtered by being beaten to death are not halal, they are haram, i.e., not permissible. Halal is a term that is used in all areas of a Muslim’s life — for example, the Internet, and what is permissible for Muslims. It seems that Iran is laying the groundwork to “protect” the minds of the faithful. The plan is to sever Iran from the rest of the world, electronically, and limit Internet use to censored material approved by the Islamic Republic. How does that verse go? “There is no compulsion in religion.” (Qur’an 2:256). Sure sounds like it!
About the Author
I am a graduate of Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY, and the author of "Islam, the Cloak of Antichrist." This writing is an interpretation of end-times Bible prophecy using the Islamic Paradigm. The Islamic Paradigm interprets Islam to be the instrument through which the Antichrist wages his end-times conflict to gain dominion over the world (Revelation 13:7-8). Iran and Shia Islam is interpreted to be the primary instrument through which this end-times conflict is waged in the end-of-days. This writing is also a warning to Christians of the Bible's prophecies of difficult times ahead and how Islam fulfills multiple prophecies of the last days. "Jack Smith" is the pen name used for all posts and writings.
