Yes the Quraan does tlk about meat and animals being slaughterd to eat but it does not condemn vegetarianism and if u jus wanna eat veggies...go ahead!Allah also put plants and such like here for us too eat as well!The Quraan is not working against you it tells you that meat is there for you to eat but sooo are veggies so if you dnt wanna eat meat u r not going against wat u beleive.
I will be a vegetarian no matter what. Just while i am under the roof of my parent's house i will abide by their rules. But sure enough as soon as i go to uni will be a fully fledged veggie
(who eats fish and eggs! -mainly for protein).
I know the Quran doesnt directly condemn vegetarianism, but i think one potential reason for this is that noone was ever vegetarian in the time that it was revealed, hence would have looked VERY odd to condemn something that didnt yet exist!! and btw, it couldnt have existed as anyone in those days who turned veggie died, or lived an extremely malnutritioned life (or so i think).
However many muslims have talked to this about me, and i have yet to find another muslim who is a veggie. It seems that the trend is the older you get, the less change you want. Hence the more liberalist view on TSR, for this i praise all of you. Elder muslims have told me that it would be better if i ate meat. and then said something that i found really stupid - "you don't want to be like hindus do you?". LOL.
finally, at the end of the day, i think that even if vegetarianism was condemned in the quran i would still be one. I hold the belief that Allah has put these morals inside of me, and so even if these conflict with the quran, i must follow. the only other option is eating something i am uncomfortable with for the rest of my life!
