(2) Prohibition of Pork: Detailed Points
Bible: Leviticus 11:7-8. And the SWINE, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you. Of their flesh shall ye NOT EAT, and their carcase shall ye NOT TOUCH; they are unclean to you.
Bible: Deuteronomy 14:8. And the SWINE, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud, it is unclean unto you: ye shall NOT EAT of their flesh, NOR TOUCH their dead carcase.
Quran: 2:173. He hath only forbidden you dead meat, and blood, and the flesh of SWINE (PIG), and that on which any other name hath been invoked besides that of God. But if one is forced by necessity, without wilful disobedience, nor transgressing due limits,-- then is he guiltless. For God is Oft-forgiving Most Merciful.
Quran: 5:4. Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead meat, blood, the flesh of SWINE, and that on which hath been invoked the name of other than God; that which hath been killed by strangling, or by a violent blow, or by a headlong fall, or by being gored to death; that which hath been (partly) eaten by a wild animal; unless ye are able to slaughter it (in due form); that which is sacrificed on stone (altars); (forbidden) also is the division (of meat) by raffling with arrows: that is impiety. This day have those who reject faith given up all hope of your religion: yet fear them not but fear Me. This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. But if any is forced by hunger, with no inclination to transgression, God is indeed Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
Quran: 6:145. Say: "I find not in the message received by me by inspiration any (meat) forbidden to be eaten by one who wishes to eat it, unless it be dead meat, or blood poured forth, or the flesh of SWINE,- for it is an abomination - or, what is impious, (meat) on which a name has been invoked, other than God's". But (even so), if a person is forced by necessity, without wilful disobedience, nor transgressing due limits,- thy Lord is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
Quran: 16:115. He has only forbidden you dead meat, and blood, and the flesh of SWINE, and any (food) over which the name of other than God has been invoked. But if one is forced by necessity, without wilful disobedience, nor transgressing due limits,- then God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
