Reasons for the Prohibition of Specific Foods in the Quran

Translator(s): 

God has created man in a way that whatever he eats and drinks has an influence on his mind, body and soul. Hence, God declared certain edible materials as prohibited (haram) and others permissible (halal). This paper lists the foods that are impermissible as mentioned in the Quranic Chapters al-Baqarah and al-Maidah.
