Eight pairs (created male and female beasts of burden and those which are fit for slaughter as indicated in verse 142); of the sheep two and of the goat two. Say: “Has He forbidden the two males or the two females or that which the wombs of the two females enclose”? Inform me with knowledge if you are truthful.
And of the camel two, cattle two. Say: “Has He forbidden the two males or the two females or which the wombs of the two females enclose”? Or were you witnesses when Allah enjoined you this? Who, then, is more unjust than he who forges a lie against Allah, to lead mankind astray without knowledge. Surely, Allah does not cause the wrongdoers to attain to Guidance (Hidayet).
Say: “I do not find in that which has been revealed to me anything forbidden for an eater to eat of except that it be what has died of itself, or blood poured forth, or flesh of swine-for that surely is unclean-or that which is slaughtered as a sacrifice for others than Allah with a Fisq”; but whoever is driven to necessity without willful disobedience, nor exceeding the limit, then surely your Lord is Oft-Forgiving (the One who changes sins into merits), Most Merciful (the One who sends down the light of mercy).
And to those who were Jews We made unlawful every animal with undivided hoof and of oxen and sheep We made unlawful to them the fat of both, except such as was on their backs or the entrails or what was mixed with bones. Thus We punished them for their rebellion, and We are surely Faithful.
