Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


[Maidah 5:1] O People who Believe! Fulfil your words (agreements); the mute animals are made lawful for you (to eat) except what will be declared to you after this, but do not assume hunting as lawful when you are on the pilgrimage; indeed Allah commands whatever He wills.

[Maidah 5:2] O People who Believe! Do not make lawful the symbols of Allah nor the sacred months nor the sacrificial animals sent to the Sacred Territory (around Makkah) nor the animals marked with garlands, nor the lives and wealth of those travelling towards the Sacred House (Ka’abah) seeking the munificence and pleasure of their Lord; and when you have completed the pilgrimage, you may hunt; and let not the enmity of the people who had stopped you from going to the Sacred Mosque tempt you to do injustice; and help one another in righteousness and piety - and do not help one another in sin and injustice - and keep fearing Allah; indeed Allah’s punishment is severe.
