First it was Piglet and the very best presentation has been of course Cox & Forkum's
Perils Before Swine
But just wait a minute. Dogs are even more
impure are they not?
First Piglet Then Lassie?????????
Dogs are also considered ritually impure by Muslims. In fact, according to this ruling, it's easier to remove the ritual impurity associated with pigs than that associated with dogs.
"With regard to how to cleanse oneself of pig-related impurity, some scholars are of the view that it should be washed seven times, one of which should be with earth, by analogy with dogs.
But the correct view is that pig-related impurity should be washed only once.
On further reflection is it not true.
It's Not Just Piglet and Lassie
It's us too!
84. The following ten things are originally impure:
(i) Urine (ii) Faeces (iii) Semen (iv) Dead body (v) Blood
(vi) Dog (vii) Pig (viii) Infidel
(ix) Wine (x) Barley wine (Beer)
Now it appears Banks are discontinuing handing out piggy banks?
That does not make sense. Usury is FORBIDDEN in Islam.
Interest: The Way to Inevitable Ruin
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Believers do not gorge yourselves on interest, multiplying (your money) again and again. Have fear of Allah, so that you may prosper. Guard yourselves against the fire which has been prepared for the disbelievers; and obey Allah and the messenger, that you may be graced with mercy. (The House of Imran, "Aal Imran": 3;130 -132)

So what is someone doing in a Bank to be offended by a piggybank if just being there is a violation of their beliefs.
I think we are having our chains jerked and there are enough idiots to fall for it.
Or should we just resign ourselves to dhimmitude?
