Say, "I do not find within that which was revealed to me [anything] forbidden to one who would eat it unless it be a dead [animal] or blood spilled out or the flesh of swine - for indeed, it is impure - or it be [that slaughtered in] disobedience, dedicated to other than God. But whoever is forced [by necessity], neither desiring [it] nor transgressing [its limit], then indeed, your Lord is Forgiving and Merciful."
[And likewise,] there is not upon those who believe and do righteousness [any] blame concerning what they have eaten [in the past] if they [now] fear God and believe and do righteous deeds, and then fear God and believe, and then fear God and do good; and God loves the doers of good.
Isaiah 65:2 - 5, Torah
[But] I have spread out My hands all the day to a rebellious people, who walk in a way [that was] not good, after their own thoughts; a people who provokes Me to anger continually to My Face; who sacrifices in gardens, and burns incense upon altars of brick; who remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, who eat swine's flesh, and broth of abominable [things is in] their vessels; who say, "Stand by yourself, do not come near me; for I am holier than you." These [are] a smoke in My nose, a fire that burns all the day.
Isaiah 66:15 - 17, Torah
[So] behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with His chariots like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury, and His rebuke with flames of fire. For the Lord will judge all flesh by fire and by His sword, and the slain of the Lord will be many. "Those who sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one [tree] in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, will be consumed together," the Lord says.
16:113 - 114, Qur'an
And [thus] there had certainly come to them a messenger from among themselves, but they denied him; so punishment overtook them while they were wrongdoers. Then eat of what God has provided for you [which is] lawful and good. And be grateful for the favor of God, if it is [indeed] Him that you serve.
Matthew 8:28, Gospel
[Remember] when [Jesus] had come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceedingly fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.
Mark 5:13, Gospel
And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out and entered into the swine, and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea (they were about two thousand) and were choked in the sea.
5:62 - 63, Qur'an
You see many of them hastening into sin and aggression and the devouring of [what is] unlawful. How wretched is what they have been doing. Why do the rabbis and religious scholars [now] not forbid them from devouring what is unlawful and saying what is sinful? How wretched is what they have been practicing.
5:59 - 60, Qur'an
[So] say, "O People of the Scripture, do you resent us except [for the fact] that we have believed in God and what was revealed to us and what was revealed before and because most of you are defiantly disobedient?" Say, "Shall I inform you of [what is] worse than that as penalty from God? [It is that of] those whom God has cursed and with whom He became angry and made of them apes and pigs and slaves of false gods. Those are worse in position and further astray from the sound way."
2:172 - 173, Qur'an
[So] O you who have believed, eat from the good things which We have provided for you and be grateful to God if it is [indeed] Him that you serve. He has only forbidden to you the flesh of swine, dead [animals], blood, and that which has been dedicated to other than God. But whoever is forced [by necessity], neither desiring [it] nor transgressing [its limit], there is no sin upon him. Indeed, God is Forgiving and Merciful.
23:68 - 70, Qur'an
Then have they not reflected over [the Qur'an], or has there come to them that which had not come to their forefathers? Or did they not know their messenger, so they are toward him dis-acknowledging? Or do they say, "In [Muhammad] is a [devil of] jinn?" Rather, he brought them the truth, but most of them, to the truth, are averse.
[So] O children of Adam, do not let Satan tempt you as he removed your parents from Paradise, stripping them of their clothing to show them their private parts. Indeed, he sees you, he and his tribe, from where you do not see them. Indeed, We have made the devils allies to those who do not believe -
43:36 - 38, Qur'an
[Whereby] whoever is blinded from remembrance of the Most Gracious - We appoint for him a devil, and he is to him a companion. Indeed, the devils avert them from the way [of guidance] while they think that they are [rightly] guided. Until, when he comes to Us [at Judgement], he says [to his companion], "Oh, I wish there was between me and you the distance between the east and west - how wretched a companion."
68:5 - 8, Qur'an
So you will see and they will see which of you is the afflicted [by a devil]. Indeed, your Lord is most knowing of who has gone astray from His way, and He is most knowing of the [rightly] guided. Then do not obey the deniers.
16:114 - 115, Qur'an
[Rather,] eat of what God has provided for you [which is] lawful and good. And be grateful for the favor of God, if it is [indeed] Him that you serve. He has only forbidden to you the flesh of swine, dead [animals], blood, and that which has been dedicated to other than God. But whoever is forced [by necessity], neither desiring [it] nor transgressing [its limit] - then indeed, God is Forgiving and Merciful.
Do not say about what your tongues assert of untruth, "This is lawful," and "This is unlawful," to invent falsehood about God. Indeed, those who invent falsehood about God will not succeed.
[So ask them about the] eight mates - of the sheep, two and of the goats, two. [So] say, "Has He forbidden the two males or the two females or that which the wombs of the two females contain? Inform me with knowledge, if you should be truthful."
And of the camels, two, and of the cattle, two. [So] say, "Has He forbidden the two males or the two females or that which the wombs of the two females contain? Or were you witnesses when God charged you with this? Then who is more wrong than one who invents a lie about God to mislead the people by [something] other than knowledge? Indeed, God does not guide the wrongdoing people."
Isaiah 66:4, Torah
[For] I will also choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none answered; when I spoke, they did not hear, but they did evil before My eyes, and chose [that] in which I did not delight.
Deuteronomy 14:7, Torah
[Whereby We said to them,] "You will not eat of those who divide the cloven hoof, or of those who chew the cud; [as] the camel, and the hare, and the coney, for they do not divide the hoof, but they chew the cud; [therefore] they [are] unclean to you."
And of the cattle and the sheep We prohibited to them their fat, except what adheres to their backs or the entrails or what is joined with bone. [By] that We repaid them for their injustice. And indeed, We are truthful.
Leviticus 7:22 - 25, Torah
[For] the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, "Speak to the Children of Israel, saying, 'You will eat no manner of fat, of ox, or of sheep, or of goat.' And the fat of the beast that dies of itself, and the fat of that which is torn with beasts, may be used in any other use, but you will in no wise eat of it. For whoever eats the fat of the beast, of which men offer an offering made by fire to the Lord, even the soul who eats [it] will be cut off from his people."
16:118 - 119, Qur'an
[Thus] to those who are Jews We have prohibited that which We related to you before. And We did not wrong them [thereby], but they were wronging themselves. Then, indeed your Lord, to those who have done wrong out of ignorance and then repent after that and correct themselves - indeed, your Lord, thereafter, is Forgiving and Merciful.
5:87 - 88, Qur'an
[So] O you who have believed, do not prohibit the good things which God has made lawful to you and do not transgress. Indeed, God does not love the transgressors. And eat of what God has provided for you [which is] lawful and good. And fear God, in whom you are believers.
[And so] they ask you, what has been made lawful for them. Say, "Lawful for you are [all] good foods and [game caught by] what you have trained of hunting animals which you train as God has taught you. So eat of what they catch for you, and mention the name of God over it, and fear God." Indeed, God is swift in account.
[So] do not eat of that upon which the name of God has not been mentioned, for indeed, it is grave disobedience. And indeed do the devils inspire their allies [among men] to dispute with you. And if you were to obey them, indeed, you would be associators [of others with Him].
1 Corinthians 8:4, Gospel
Therefore, as concerning the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice to idols, we know that an idol [is] nothing in the world, and that [there is] none other God but one.
1 Corinthians 10:28, Gospel
[And so] if any man says to you, "This is offered in sacrifice to idols," do not eat for his sake who showed it, and for conscience sake, for the earth [is] the Lord [God's], and the fullness thereof -
Genesis 9:3 - 4, Torah
[And thus,] every [good] moving thing that lives will be meat for you; even as the green herb, I have given you all [good] things. But flesh with the life, [which is] the blood, you will not eat.
Leviticus 22:8, Torah
[And] that which dies of itself, or is torn [with beasts], [you] will not eat to defile [yourself] therewith, I [am] the Lord.
[And so] prohibited to you are dead [animals], blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than God, and [those animals] killed by strangling or by a violent blow or by a head-long fall or by the goring of horns, and those from which a wild animal has eaten, except what you [are able to] slaughter [before its death], and those which are sacrificed on stone altars, and [prohibited is] that you seek decision through divining arrows. That is grave disobedience. This day those who disbelieve have despaired of [defeating] your religion; so fear them not, but fear Me. This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you submission [to God] as religion. But whoever is forced by severe hunger with no inclination to sin - then indeed, God is Forgiving and Merciful.
