فَكُلُوا مِمَّا رَزَقَكُمُ اللَّهُ حَلَالًا طَيِّبًا وَاشْكُرُوا نِعْمَتَ اللَّهِ
إِنْ كُنْتُمْ إِيَّاهُ تَعْبُدُونَ
إِنَّمَا حَرَّمَ عَلَيْكُمُ الْمَيْتَةَ وَالدَّمَ وَلَحْمَ الْخِنْزِيرِ وَمَا أُهِلَّ لِغَيْرِ اللَّهِ بِهِ ۖ
فَمَنِ اضْطُرَّ غَيْرَ بَاغٍ وَلَا عَادٍ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ
Eat of the lawful and good things God has provided for you,
and be thankful for God’s blessings, if it is Him that you serve.
He has forbidden you carrion, and blood, and the flesh of swine, and anything consecrated to other than God.
But if anyone is compelled by necessity, without being deliberate or malicious, then God is Forgiving and Merciful.
Surah An-Nahl (114-115)
