I am asking these questions on behalf of a friend, and he has asked me to ask for answers with quotes specifically found in the Quran. 1) In Quran what EXACTLY does it say about women and thier covering? for example does it mention hijab in some form, and what exactly is the directive on covering. 2) In Quran where and what specifically does it menation about eadible foods? he seems to recall there being a mention about certain types of hoves? (animal feet) that allow these to be eatable. The following question is for myself I have a very close frind who i know is in the habbit of eating haram food (non halal), and he does nto seem to think of any thing wrong in this matter. now my question is two part, what kind of punishment is levied at sucha person and what are my liabilites on the day of judgment on this matter. Also as he is trying to now have a baby (mashallah), will the baby also suffer as a result of the fathers indescressions? or does each person carry the weight of thier consequences? I woudl be greateful if these matters can be answered.
The answers your questions are as follows:
The Qur’an does not mention anything such as a hijab (i.e. headscarf) for women. It requires women and men to dress modestly and be prudent about their presentation. There is no directive on covering except that which I have mentioned.
The Qur’an makes no mention of hooves as a reason for an animal to be allowable for consumption or not. That is something that could be found in the Old Testament of the Bible in Leviticus. As for eating prohibited foods, if your friend knows they are prohibited and does not care then he will bear the burden of his actions. What type of punishment or how it will be dealt is something that God will decide. The baby has no guilt and does not in any way gain any sins of its father. Every individual is held accountable for their own actions and nothing that a father or mother does in any way transfers their wrongs to their children. This concept is alien to Islam.
I hope I have clarified the issue.
God knows best.
