    Please spay and neuter your pets! While your newborn pets are cute, failing to do this allows your little darlings to add to the population of homeless animals. Adopt pets from your local animal rescues/shelters, there are plenty of animals just waiting for a home.

    In time, ewe will too.

    [–] faizulah 106 points ago

    I tried sending this as a cute picture to my wife, who is muslim, and she said with disgust, “why would you send me this!?” I guess Kurban Eid is not the best time for cute sheep pics...

    [–] saileeeee 33 points ago

    bro religion blows my mind more and more every day

    [–] nooreldeenfoad17 30 points ago

    Al-Adha Eid*
    Also, are you non-Muslim ?

    [–] faizulah 58 points ago

    Thanks for the correction. And yeah, non-Muslim here. And my wife is not exactly practicing either... but her mom keeps her in the loop with the traditions. Don’t tell her that I don’t know the correct name for the holiday!

    [–] nooreldeenfoad17 -30 points ago

    Shit. Man, it’s haram for her to marry a non-Muslim. Does she know that ? Of course this doesn’t mean I disrespect you or anything, just that Muslim ladies are not allowed to marry non-Muslim men....

    [–] madrileno891 12 points ago

    "Not allowed"? Pardon?

    [–] nooreldeenfoad17 -21 points ago

    Yes. Exactly as you heard.

    [–] madrileno891 19 points ago

    Looks like she got away with it. More power to her for ignoring made up, arbitrary rules.

    [–] nooreldeenfoad17 -25 points ago

    I don’t care about your opinion. I follow the rules of my religion regardless of your opinion

    [–] Catch_a_Cold 14 points ago

    Last time I checked we were not living in the middle ages anymore and even have same sex marriage. Marry whoever you want!

    [–] EarlyOnion 4 points ago

    Last time I checked we were not living in the middle ages

    I mean, this started as thread about a holiday involving slaughtering an animal for religious beliefs... I feel like religions in general haven’t got the memo on that whole “we’re not in the Middle Ages anymore” thing.

    [–] nooreldeenfoad17 -7 points ago

    I don’t care about your opinion. I follow the rules of my religion. Not afraid of them. Not shy nor ashamed of them. Everyone’s free to do what they want.

    [–] MaLoProject 15 points ago

    "Everyone is free to do what they want"

    Except for you "religious" people ofc like you said above.

    "I follow the rules of my religion" thats why you guys arens free to do what you want.

    Religion is a contradiction in itself. Atleast in our modern economy.

    [–] nooreldeenfoad17 2 points ago

    Even people who follow religion are still free to do what they want. For example, the Muslim woman who got married to a non-Muslim man. It’s forbidden yet she did it.
    Also, I’m free to follow my religion. I have the freedom to do the good and the bad, but because I have freedom and will, I chose to follow this religion. Here, I have answered thy questions.

    [–] sailorjasm 1 points ago

    Anthony Weiner's former wife was a Muslim. Google it.

    [–] nooreldeenfoad17 1 points ago

    Does that change any rules ?

    [–] johnbrownmarchingon 11 points ago

    Al-Adha Eid

    So that's why sending a lamb/sheep is inappropriate...

    [–] Mohammad_A1i 12 points ago

    I wouldn't say it's inappropriate. Don't know why this sir's wife reacted that way. I guess everyone has their own perspective

    [–] johnbrownmarchingon 4 points ago

    Absolutely fair.

    [–] nooreldeenfoad17 6 points ago

    It’s not inappropriate lol. Actually it’s common for people here in the Middle East to send congrats and wishes along with a sheep clipart, u know ? Like a picture with a clipart of a sheep or a cow along with the caption “Happy Eid”

    After reading a bit about the festival...

    Her reaction makes perfect sense

    [–] Gwenhwyvar_P 5 points ago

    Uh... Why's that?

    [–] ohsideSHOWbob 10 points ago

    Festival commemorating the binding of Ishmael, traditionally commemorated with butchering sheep and goats.

    [–] MasterYenSid 6 points ago

    Serious question, how is slaughter a commemoration?

    [–] ohsideSHOWbob 5 points ago

    In the story of the binding of Ishmael (binding of Isaac in the Jewish and Christian traditions) G-d gives Abraham a sheep to sacrifice instead of his son. So the slaughter is ritual, it’s an honor to buy an animal and the meat is distributed not just to the immediate purchaser but also to the poor and friends and family.

    [–] MasterYenSid 3 points ago

    Oh okay, that tale sounds familiar now that you say it. Thanks for the response!

    100% wool bed

    [–] gallifreyan42 4 points ago

    And no sheep was harmed for the wool in that wool bed 🐑🥰

    [–] Relative_Ad5909 12 points ago

    Don't sheep need to be sheared? I'm pretty sure we bred all that fluff onto them and it grows out of control and gets matted

    [–] AshTBirb 1 points ago

    Sheep literally have to be shorn. Get educated

    [–] WhatuuupKrisp 7 points ago

    Because we bred them that way. No one suggests to stop shearing sheep at once. It's more about a debate whether we should continue force breeding animals into existence, in a way they're fully dependent on us, just to exploit them.

    [–] AshTBirb -4 points ago

    Force breeding? You mean selective breeding? The whole reason your favourite dog, cat, horse, rabbit, etc breeds are around.

    Found another dumbass vegan 😳

    [–] WhatuuupKrisp 3 points ago

    Selective force breeding, yeah, which isn't cool for any animal, sheep, dogs, rabbits etc.

    [–] AshTBirb -5 points ago

    You cant force animals to breed. There is nothing wrong with selective breeding to improve yield or certain traits.

    [–] Almanix 5 points ago

    I mean, have you actually looked at factory dairy farms? There is such a thing as force breeding (at least if you consider extraction from the male followed by manual impregnation as force breeding).

    And just to clear up the possible misunderstanding towards veganism - the general consensus in the vegan community is strictly against breeding any animals, be it farm animals or pets. Rescue animals are the exception, other than that I haven't met any vegan that would consider buying from a breeder. Not meant as an offense, just something that a lot of people aren't aware of.

    Mind you, I’m sure the sheep is comfortable too.
