وَمَا لَكُمۡ أَلَّا تَأۡكُلُواْ مِمَّا ذُكِرَ ٱسۡمُ ٱللَّهِ عَلَيۡهِ وَقَدۡ فَصَّلَ لَكُم مَّا حَرَّمَ عَلَيۡكُمۡ إِلَّا مَا ٱضۡطُرِرۡتُمۡ إِلَيۡهِ ۗ وَإِنَّ كَثِيرًا لَّيُضِلُّونَ بِأَهۡوَآئِهِم بِغَيۡرِ عِلۡمٍ ۗ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ هُوَ أَعۡلَمُ بِٱلۡمُعۡتَدِينَ
Why should ye not eat of (meats) on which Allah's name hath been pronounced, when He hath explained to you in detail what is forbidden to you - except under compulsion of necessity? But many do mislead (men) by their appetites unchecked by knowledge. Thy Lord knoweth best those who transgress.<br/>
What is wrong with you, that you do not eat from that over which God's Name has been invoked, of sacrifices, when He has detailed (for both verbs, read the passive [fussila, 'it has been detailed', and hurrima, '[that which] has been forbidden'] or the active [fassala, 'He has detailed', and harrama, '[what] He has forbidden']) for you what He has forbidden, in the verse: Forbidden to you is carrion . [Q. 5:3], except that to which you are compelled?, thereof, which is also lawful for you. The meaning is: there is nothing to prevent you from eating what has been mentioned, for He has explained to you what is forbidden for consumption, and that [over which God's Name has been invoked] is not among these [forbidden things]. But truly many are led astray (read la-yadilloona, '[many] are led astray', or la-yudilloona, '[many] lead [others] astray'), by their whims, by what their own selves fancy, in the way of permitting [the consumption of] carrion and otherwise, without any knowledge, with which to support their claims. Truly your Lord knows the transgressors, those who overstep [the bounds] of what is lawful into what is unlawful.
