Foods that were Prohibited for the Jews Because of their Transgression

Allah says, We forbade for the Jews every bird and animal with undivided hoof, such as the camel, ostrich, duck and goose. Allah said here,

ูˆูŽู…ูู†ูŽ ุงู„ู’ุจูŽู‚ูŽุฑู ูˆูŽุงู„ู’ุบูŽู†ูŽู…ู ุญูŽุฑู‘ูŽู…ู’ู†ูŽุง ุนูŽู„ูŽูŠู’ู‡ูู…ู’ ุดูุญููˆู…ูŽู‡ูู…ูŽุข

(and We forbade them the fat of the ox and the sheep…) The Jews used to forbid these types of foods saying that Isra’il, or Ya`qub, used to forbid them for himself so they too forbid them. This was mentioned by As-Suddi. `Ali bin Abi Talhah reported that Ibn `Abbas said that,

ุฅูู„ุงู‘ูŽ ู…ูŽุง ุญูŽู…ูŽู„ูŽุชู’ ุธูู‡ููˆุฑูู‡ูู…ูŽุข

(except what adheres to their backs) refers to the fat that clings to their backs. Allah said next,

ุฃูŽูˆู ุงู„ู’ุญูŽูˆูŽุงูŠูŽุข

(or their Hawaya) that is, the entrails, according to Abu Ja`far bin Jarir. He also said, “The meaning here is, `And from ox and sheep, We forbade their fat for the Jews, except the fat on their backs and what the entrails carry.” `Ali bin Abi Talhah said that, Ibn `Abbas said that the, Hawaya, are the entrails. Similar was reported from Mujahid, Sa`id bin Jubayr and Ad-Dahhak. Allah’s statement,

ุฃูŽูˆู’ ู…ูŽุง ุงุฎู’ุชูŽู„ูŽุทูŽ ุจูุนูŽุธู’ู…ู

(….or is mixed up with a bone.) means, We allowed the Jews the fat that is mixed with bones. Ibn Jurayj commented, “The fat on the rump that is mixed with the tailbone was allowed for them, and also the fat on the legs, head, eyes and what adheres to the bones.” As-Suddi said similarly. Allah said,

ุฐูŽู„ููƒูŽ ุฌูŽุฒูŽูŠู’ู†ูŽู€ู‡ูู… ุจูุจูŽุบู’ูŠูู‡ูู…ู’

(Thus We recompensed them for their rebellion.) meaning, We imposed this restriction on them as recompense for their rebellion and defying Our commandments. Allah said in another Ayah,

ููŽุจูุธูู„ู’ู…ู ู…ู‘ูู†ูŽ ุงู„ู‘ูŽุฐููŠู†ูŽ ู‡ูŽุงุฏููˆุงู’ ุญูŽุฑู‘ูŽู…ู’ู†ูŽุง ุนูŽู„ูŽูŠู’ู‡ูู…ู’ ุทูŽูŠู‘ูุจูŽู€ุชู ุฃูุญูู„ู‘ูŽุชู’ ู„ูŽู‡ูู…ู’ ูˆูŽุจูุตูŽุฏู‘ูู‡ูู…ู’ ุนูŽู† ุณูŽุจููŠู„ู ุงู„ู„ู‘ูŽู‡ู ูƒูŽุซููŠุฑุงู‹

(For the wrongdoing of the Jews, We made unlawful for them certain good foods which had been lawful for them — and for their hindering many from Allah’s way) 4:160. Allah’s statement,

ูˆูุฅูู†ู‘ูŽุง ู„ูŽุตูŽู€ุฏูู‚ููˆู†ูŽ

(And verily, We are Truthful.) means, We were justified in the penalty We gave them. Ibn Jarir commented, “We are Truthful in what We informed you of, O Muhammad; Our forbidding these foods for them, not as they claimed, that Israel merely forbade these things for himself (so they imitated him, they claimed).”

The Tricks of the Jews, and Allah’s Curse

`Abdullah bin `Abbas narrated, “When `Umar bin Al-Khattab was told that Samurah sold liquor, he commented, `May Allah fight Samurah! Did he not know that the Messenger of Allah said,

ยซู„ูŽุนูŽู†ูŽ ุงู„ู„ู‡ู ุงู„ู’ูŠูŽู‡ููˆุฏูŽ ุญูุฑู‘ูู…ูŽุชู’ ุนูŽู„ูŽูŠู’ู‡ูู…ู ุงู„ุดู‘ูุญููˆู…ู ููŽุฌูŽู…ูŽู„ููˆู‡ูŽุง ููŽุจูŽุงุนููˆู‡ูŽุงยป

(May Allah curse the Jews! The fats were forbidden for them, so they melted the fat and sold it.)” This Hadith is recorded in the Two Sahihs. Jabir bin `Abdullah said, “In the year of the victory of Makkah, I heard Allah’s Messenger saying;

ยซุฅูู†ู‘ูŽ ุงู„ู„ู‡ูŽ ูˆูŽุฑูŽุณููˆู„ูŽู‡ู ุญูŽุฑู‘ูŽู…ูŽ ุจูŽูŠู’ุนูŽ ุงู„ู’ุฎูŽู…ู’ุฑู ูˆูŽุงู„ู’ู…ูŽูŠู’ุชูŽุฉู ูˆูŽุงู„ู’ุฎูู†ู’ุฒููŠุฑู ูˆูŽุงู„ู’ุฃูŽุตู’ู†ูŽุงู…ยป

(Allah and His Messenger have forbidden selling alcoholic drinks (intoxicants), dead animals, swine and idols.) He was asked, `What about the fat of dead animals They are used to dye skins, paint ships and are used as light by the people.’ He said,

ยซู„ูŽุง ู‡ููˆูŽ ุญูŽุฑูŽุงู…ยป

(No, it is still unlawful.) He then said,

ยซู‚ูŽุงุชูŽู„ูŽ ุงู„ู„ู‡ู ุงู„ู’ูŠูŽู‡ููˆุฏูŽ ุฅูู†ู‘ูŽ ุงู„ู„ู‡ูŽ ู„ูŽู…ู‘ูŽุง ุญูŽุฑู‘ูŽู…ูŽ ุนูŽู„ูŽูŠู’ู‡ูู…ู’ ุดูุญููˆู…ูŽู‡ูŽุง ุฌูŽู…ูŽู„ููˆู‡ู ุซูู…ู‘ูŽ ุจูŽุงุนููˆู‡ู ูˆูŽุฃูŽูƒูŽู„ููˆุง ุซูŽู…ูŽู†ูŽู‡ยป

(May Allah fight the Jews! When Allah forbade them the fats of animals, they melted the fat, sold it and ate its price.)” The Group recorded this Hadith.
