Title: Ḥadīṯ e norme alimentari musulmane: alcune tradizioni sulla bontà della carne e sulla liceità della carne di cavallo
Authors: Tottoli, Roberto
Issue Date: 1997
Publisher: Padova, Editoriale Programma
Abstract: Many ḥadīṯs and some Qur'ān verses are devoted to the discussion of food. On a number of occasions the Prophet Muhammad is quoted as saying, either that meat is the best food of all, or that it is his favourite food. The passages emphasizing the positive qualities of meat were probably intended to discourage people from renouncing its consumption, which was considered behaviour alien to Islam. The question of whether horse flesh should be consumed or not is addressed in the second part of this article. An equivocal Qur'ān verse gave rise to conflicting interpretations of this matter by exegetes. The unclear pronouncements upon this matter are also reflected in ḥadīṯ literature
