Group Description

Vegetarian Muslims need ways to network with each other; the English-speaking Muslim Vegetarians list is that.

Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, salla alahi wa salam, reportedly said it is better to eat milk than to eat meat. But even if Prophet Muhammed was lactovegetarian, more Muslims are discovering veganism. Wherever vegetarian Muslims are on the spectrum, and regardless of the rationale, this is a good place to make friends and discuss common values, background, and outlooks.

The Western press and the media won't discuss it, nor will Al-Jazeera or the Arabic media and press. But Muslims may bring an intensity of personal discipline which might not be visible in what passes for the animal rights and vegetarian movements in Europe and North America.

Please reflect thoughtfully and openly about how Islam points towards vegetarianism. is optimized by it, and how vegetarian values are enriched by what Muslim vegetarians bring community and the vegetarian table.

Please be prepared to TALK, to SHARE, to HELP on this list at BOTH a Muslim and a vegetarian, not as just one or the other.

And PLEASE visit the website: http://www.IslamVeg.com/
and think about what you read there.

"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, MD FACP FACE
Clinical Associate Professor, Indiana University School of Medicine
Chair of Medical Ethics, Islamic Medical Assn of North America

"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."
