There are do's and don'ts when it comes to religions, and Islam is not left out. Among the things do's and don'ts are on is the food we eat as not all foods are healthy and allowed for Muslims to eat.
Going straight to the points, here are the foods Islam prohibited us from eating according to the Qur'an.
The prohibited foods include:
1. Dead animals, whether due to diseases or old age
3. Animals killed in dedication other than to Allah
4. Animals killed due to accidents, strangling or violent means or as a result of wounds from fighting with horn.
5. Animals attacked by wild animals, we can however, eat this if we're able to slaughter it before it dies.
6. Animals that are sacrificed to stone altars and other gods.
We have to note however, that the same Quran named the animals we're allowed to eat.
Quran 5 verse 4 says:
"They ask you, [O Muhammad], 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 Allah has taught you. So eat of what they catch for you, and mention the name of Allah upon it, and fear Allah." Indeed, Allah is swift in account".
