Leeds Greets PAL

PALEEDS1Today Ahmad Safi of the Palestinian League blessed a terrific audience with his graceful presence. We’d like to say a big thank you those who attended the event despite the uninviting weather! Especially to the LAP crew 😀 who clearly stand shoulder to shoulder with recipients of oppression. This serves as testament to us that when applying typical animal standpoint theory from day to day, one is more likely to come out in support of any oppressed or marginalised group. There was a great feeling of solidarity and respect between all those present today. As the minister had kindly explained previously, Unitarianism has historic engagements with social revolutionary reformists, and of this he is proud. Subtle vibes of renascence permeated the room. Ahmad sparked some chuckles and laughs with his charisma and wordplay as he covered PAL’s beginnings and present work.

PALEEDSToday was the first of five locations across the country where Ahmad is to talk. PAL do a lot of work with young people and are very keen to share their work and experience through educational institutions. We had also hoped to arrange numerous engagements with Muslim groups and Mosques, but due to time constraints this was not possible, however, PAL will return, hopefully in greater numbers, maybe then we can help initiate a compassionate uprising. Until then, be sure to follow and support PAL in any way you can.

In the Muwatta Muhammad’s (pbuh) Umar explains to one Man: ”Every time you get hungry you go out and buy meat? Right?

In the Muwatta, Umar says: ”Beware of meat, because it has an addiction like the addiction of wine.”
”If animals have been subjected to cruelties in their breeding, transport, slaughter, or in their general welfare, meat from them is considered impure and unlawful to eat (Haram)… Even if these animals have been slaughtered in the strictest Islamic manner, if cruelties were inflicted on them otherwise, their flesh is still forbidden (Haram) food.
