CARRION (Arabic Maitah) is forbidden in the Qur’an, Surah ii. 80. “That which dieth of itself and blood, and swine’s flesh, and that over which any other name than that of God hath been invoked, is forbidden. But he who shall partake of them by constraint, without lust or willfulness, no sin shall be upon him.”
