يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓاْ أَوۡفُواْ بِٱلۡعُقُودِ ۚ أُحِلَّتۡ لَكُم بَهِيمَةُ ٱلۡأَنۡعَٰمِ إِلَّا مَا يُتۡلَىٰ عَلَيۡكُمۡ غَيۡرَ مُحِلِّى ٱلصَّيۡدِ وَأَنتُمۡ حُرُمٌ ۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَحۡكُمُ مَا يُرِيدُ
O ye who believe! fulfil (all) obligations. Lawful unto you (for food) are all four-footed animals, with the exceptions named: But animals of the chase are forbidden while ye are in the sacred precincts or in pilgrim garb: for Allah doth command according to His will and plan.<br/>
Al-Maaidah (the Table Spread with Food)<br/><br/>Medinese: [consisting of] 120 verses, revealed after [soorat] al-Fath.<br/><br/>O you who believe, fulfil your bonds, the covenants confirmed between you and God and [between you and other] people. Lawful to you is the beast of the flocks, camels, cattle, and sheep [and goats], to eat after slaughtering [them], except that which is now being recited to you, as forbidden in [the verse below] Forbidden to you are carrion.[Q. 5:3]; the exceptive clause here is a discontinuous one, but may also be continuous; the forbidding concerns that which has succumbed to death and the like; game not being lawful to you when you are on pilgrimage (hurum means muhrimoon; ghayra, 'not', is in the accusative as [it introduces] a circumstantial qualifier referring to the subject of the pronoun lakum, 'to you'). Verily, God decrees whatever He desires, in the way of making [things] lawful or otherwise, and there can be no objection there to.
