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—they will not be sinful. Surely Allah is All-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Indeed, those who hide Allah’s revelations, trading them for a fleeting gain consume nothing but fire into their bellies. Allah will neither speak to them on the Day of Judgment, nor will He purify them. And they will suffer a painful punishment.
They are the ones who trade guidance for misguidance and forgiveness for punishment. How persistent are they in pursuit of the Fire!
That is because Allah has revealed the Book in truth. And surely those who differ regarding it are totally engrossed in opposition.
