Away and angrily ask you to leave why because you don’t understand them according to the teachings of Allah followers of Islam are not allowed to use stimulants like alcohol because they make people lose their reason and can lead to regrettable sins Muslim Believers highly respect and follow the teachings of their Almighty and

Therefore some Islamic Count’s governments have issued orders prohibiting the consumption of alcoholic beverages devout Muslims never drink beer or wine throughout their lives if you are invited to a Muslim family it’s best not to give them wine or beer in Palestinian weddings you won’t find a drop of

Alcohol the most delicious beverage you can find might be carbonated soft drinks and if not then stick to plain water number nine fruition of pork consumption when in Palestine you’ll have a variety of interesting food options to choose from but there will be absolutely no dishes made with pork I

Can confidently tell you that 90 of Palestinians have never tasted the flavor of pork until they’re passing once again the reason stems from Islam a passage in the qurin prohibits the consumption of through deep analysis there are two main reasons why Muslim Believers believe that eating pork is harmful to their health and

Morally first pigs are unclean animals and carry many harmful diseases for humans second it has a negative impact on one’s character due to the frequent exchange of mates as pigs are known to be promiscuous therefore Islamic restaurants often use beef as a main and popular dish pork is one of the most

Common foods globally with approximately 1 billion pigs slaughtered for consumption every year widely used in many culer cultures however for some religions like Judaism or Islam pork is considered forbid while Hindus refrain from consuming beef due to their reverence for cows Muslims avoid pork because it is deemed impure for the body

The Holy Quran the sacred scripture of Islam clearly lists certain prohibited foods and pork is among it so when you’re here don’t be surprised if you can’t find any dishes made with pork number eight prohibition of using the index finger if you have a habit of pointing with your index finger when

Talking about something or someone it’s best not to visit Palestine there is a real possibility that you might be assaulted or even lose that finger there in the Islamic belief system pointing with the index finger is considered a disrespectful gesture therefore it is a strongly condemned action instead use

Your right thumb and keep the other four fingers tightly clenched underneath an Australian tourist once visited Palestine pointed at an elderly man selling Goods immediately the man’s son grabbed a stick attacked and chased the Australian away they genuinely wanted to harm him there it was only later after

Researching his Lum more thoroughly that the tourist realized it was a forbidden so if you plan to go there remember to keep your index finger down until you return home number six dirty left hand you’ll encounter issues with both heads the index finger is not to be used and your

Left hand becomes practically useless in this country According to Islamic beliefs the left hand is considered impure therefore in certain religious rituals and important ceremonies people do not use their left hand for example when holding food religious items or shaking hands it is customary to use the right hand when giving or receiving

Gifts or even when receiving food if you have to use both hands the left hand must be placed beneath the right hand again when pointing only use the index finger of the right hand hand while the other four fingers should be tightly Muslims typically reserve the right hand for religious ceremonies and important

Activities in their lives in Islamic beliefs the left hand is associated with personal hygiene activities and is therefore considered less clean so when here refrain from using your left hand to handle objects and food when a Muslim offers a gift or transfers something to you use both hands to receive it with

The left hand position beneath the right hand addition Al absolutely avoid using the index finger to point in any direction object or especially at someone this is considered a serious offense to one’s dignity in Islamic culture remember to use your entire hand When indicating something to avoid unnecessary complications

Highly respected by the Muslim population on bees and woodpeckers are species that are strictly protected here According to Islamic beliefs ants are respected creatures they are diligent organized and have high endurance of course people may unintentionally kill ants because they are truly tiny but don’t let others see it at the very

Least you will be held accountable if you deliberately kill ants or destroy an ant nest you may be taken to the mosque and punished with a cane for going against religious teachings not only ants but all other animals also have specific rules regarding their treatment even animals raised for food have
