That is so. And whoever honours the rituals of Allah, it is best for them in the sight of their Lord. The ˹meat of˺ cattle has been made lawful for you, except what has ˹already˺ been recited to you.1 So shun the impurity of idolatry, and shun words of falsehood.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

٣١
Be upright ˹in devotion˺ to Allah, associating none with Him ˹in worship˺. For whoever associates ˹others˺ with Allah is like someone who has fallen from the sky and is either snatched away by birds or swept by the wind to a remote place.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

٣٢
That is so. And whoever honours the symbols of Allah, it is certainly out of the piety of the heart.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

٣٣
You may benefit from sacrificial animals for an appointed term,1 then their place of sacrifice is at the Ancient House.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

٣٤
For every community We appointed a rite of sacrifice so that they may pronounce the Name of Allah over the sacrificial animals He has provided for them. For your God is only One God, so submit yourselves to Him ˹alone˺. And give good news ˹O Prophet˺ to the humble:

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

٣٥
those whose hearts tremble at the remembrance of Allah, who patiently endure whatever may befall them, and who establish prayer and donate from what We have provided for them.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

٣٦
We have made sacrificial camels ˹and cattle˺ among the symbols of Allah, in which there is ˹much˺ good for you. So pronounce the Name of Allah over them when they are lined up ˹for sacrifice˺. Once they have fallen ˹lifeless˺ on their sides, you may eat from their meat, and feed the needy—those who do not beg, and those who do. In this way We have subjected these ˹animals˺ to you so that you may be grateful.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

٣٧
Neither their meat nor blood reaches Allah. Rather, it is your piety that reaches Him. This is how He has subjected them to you so that you may proclaim the greatness of Allah for what He has guided you to, and give good news to the good-doers.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

٣٨
Indeed, Allah defends those who believe. Surely Allah does not like whoever is deceitful, ungrateful.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

٣٩
Permission ˹to fight back˺ is ˹hereby˺ granted to those being fought, for they have been wronged.1 And Allah is truly Most Capable of helping them ˹prevail˺.
