Muslim Vegetarians

"There is no doubt that a vegetarian diet is healthier and beneficial to health in lowering weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar. Our Prophet was mostly vegetarian..."
Dr. Shahid Athar, M.D., FACP, FACE Clinical Associate Professor, Indiana University School of Medicine Chair of Medical Ethics, Islamic Medical Association of North America http://www.islam-usa.com

"Islam, a religion of compassion and moderation, acknowledges animals` rights and emphasizes humans` responsibility for their welfare. A vegan vegetarian diet is healthful, promotes mental and physical well- being, and is cruelty-free. It does not include animal parts or products such as eggs and dairy products. I urge every Moslem and nonMoslem to become a vegan vegetarian."
Moneim A. Fadali, M.D., M. Ch., FACS, FRCS (C), FACC, FACCP Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeon Author, Animal Experimentation: A Harvest of Shame

"God is Rahman and Rahim, the most compassionate and merciful. The one with true Islam draws close to God by inculcating God`s qualities of compassion and mercy, thus a true Muslim is one who honors, sustains, and protects the lives of creatures of God and does not kill them for her own food."
Ghazala Anwar, Ph.D., Professor of Islamic Studies

"Just wanted to let you know that there are other Muslims out there who support such causes. As a matter of fact, there are many Muslims out here that are vegan."
Shahid `Ali Muttaqi, publisher and music producer
