(168) He only commands you to evil and indecency, and that you should speak against God such things as you know not. (169) And when it is said to them, 'Follow what God has sent down,' they say, 'No; but we will follow such things as we found our fathers doing.' What?

(171) O ye who believe! Eat of the good things wherewith We have provided you, and render thanks to Allah if it is (indeed) He Whom ye worship. (172) He hath only forbidden unto you the carcass and blood and the flesh of swine, and that over which is invoked the name of other than Allah. But whosoever is driven by necessity, neither alusting nor transgressing, for him is no sin; verily Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

(174) These are they who have purchased error for guidance, and torment for forgiveness. How enduring must they be of the Fire! (175) That is because God has sent down the Book with the truth. And those who pursue differences in the Scriptures go much too far in dissension. (176)
