Can you be Muslim and vegan? What about Jewish or Christian?

From a Christian view point it is crystal clear that being vegetarian and non-vegetarian are both completely OK. The apostle Paul addressed the matter specifically in Romans 14:1-23

"Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations. For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs. Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him"

Muslims respect the Bible so that ruling should be influential to them too

When Lujayn Hawari decided to become a vegan, she knew her parents would not take it well.

The 27-year-old Palestinian journalist grew up in Brisbane in a "moderately conservative Muslim household".

That meant praying five times a day, observing Islamic holidays and traditions, and eating what her mother cooked — including meat.

So when Lujayn made the decision to stop eating animal products in 2016, her parents were unimpressed.

"It was an argument [at] breakfast, lunch and dinner," she says.
