Animal fat

Surah Al-An'am is about cattle and livestock. This is an Ayat in the Quran that mentions about animal fat.

Surah #6, Surah Al-An'am, Ayat 146:

"Dan kepada orang Yahudi, Kami haramkan segala binatang yang berkuku;4 dan Kami haramkan ke atas mereka lemak lembu dan kambing melainkan lemak yang melekat di punggung keduanya, atau yang menyelaputi dalam isi perutnya atau yang bercampur dengan tulang. Demikianlah Kami menghukum mereka disebabkan kederhakaan mereka; dan sesungguhnya Kami adalah Maha Besar.

4. Binatang berkuku di sini ialah binatang-binatang yang jari-jemarinya tidak terpisah di antara satu sama lain seperti unta, itik, angsa dan lain-lain. Sebahagian ahli tafsir mengertikan dengan binatang-binatang yang berkuku satu seperti kuda, keldai dan lain-lain.

From Quran databases at the Center for Muslim-Jewish Engagement, USA:

006.146
YUSUFALI: For those who followed the Jewish Law, We forbade every (animal) with undivided hoof, and We forbade them that fat of the ox and the sheep, except what adheres to their backs or their entrails, or is mixed up with a bone: this in recompense for their wilful disobedience: for We are true (in Our ordinances).

PICKTHAL: Unto those who are Jews We forbade every animal with claws. And of the oxen and the sheep forbade We unto them the fat thereof save that upon the backs or the entrails, or that which is mixed with the bone. That We awarded them for their rebellion. And lo! We verily are truthful.

SHAKIR: And to those who were Jews We made unlawful every animal having claws, and of oxen and sheep We made unlawful to them the fat of both, except such as was on their backs or the entrails or what was mixed with bones: this was a punishment We gave them on account of their rebellion, and We are surely Truthful.
