"Oh People of Imaan! Eat of the pure things (Halal) that We have provided for you, and be grateful to Allah" - (Al-Baqarah 2:172)
In Muslim Countries pigs are HARAM and peoples consume HALAL meat so it is not possible that swine flue overcome in these Countries. There is no Pigs Forming so peoples has no direct contact with infected Pigs.
I am sure many muslims have some point in there life been asked the question Why is the eating of pork forbidden in your religion? Some brothers and sisters cannot give a reply good enough to convince the person asking the question that Pork really is not made for human consumption. Here is an article that might help. Why Pork is Haram to eat? There are many reasons as to why Pig meat is forbidden for human consumption. First simple reason is that in Islam you must always slaughter the animal from the neck this is for the benefit of the animal itself so the animal dies quick and less painfully, Pig however has no neck therefore Islamically it is impossible to slaughter a Pig even if it was Halal(permissable). There are many scientific reasons as to why Pork is not fit for human consumption:
Dr. Goldsborough’s article went on to say, “In the flesh of a pig, the trichinae are often so minute, and so nearly transparent, that to find them, even with a microscope, is a task for expert scientific inspection. Remember this, when you see stamped on a pork product the words, “US Government inspected and passed“, those words do not mean that any official inspection has been made as to whether this pork is trichinous or not. It only means it has merely passed the routine inspection given meat in general.” Dr. Maurice C. Hall as Chief of the Division of Zoology of the US Public Health Service commented, “It appears to be a legitimate demand that, when a man exchanges dollars for pork, he should not do it, on the basis that he may be purchasing his death warrant.” Senator Thomas C. Desmond, who served as chairman of the New York Trichinosis Commission stated, “Physicians have confused trichinosis with some 50 ailments, ranging from Typhoid Fever to Acute Alcoholism.” Continuing, he states, “That pain in your arm or leg may be arthritis or rheumatism, but it may be trichinosis. That pain in your back may mean a gall-bladder involvement, but it may mean trichinosis.”
Swine Flu is a contagious respiratory disease that causes outbreaks in pigs year-round. The virus can spread to people who have contact with infected pigs. It spreads when an infected person coughs or sneezes around someone else. People can become infected by touching something with the flu virus on it and then touching their mouth, nose, or eyes.
If all Muslims take care in meeting with those peoples or Countries which are infected with Swine Flu than there are less chances of Sine Flu spread in there countries .
