He has only forbidden you ˹to eat˺ carrion, blood, swine,1 and what is slaughtered in the name of any other than Allah. But if someone is compelled by necessity—neither driven by desire nor exceeding immediate need—then surely Allah is All-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Do not falsely declare with your tongues, “This is lawful, and that is unlawful,” ˹only˺ fabricating lies against Allah. Indeed, those who fabricate lies against Allah will never succeed.
˹It is only˺ a brief enjoyment, then they will suffer a painful punishment.
To the Jews, We have forbidden what We related to you before.1 We did not wrong them, but it was they who wronged themselves.
