古代伊斯兰社会是怎样面对饥荒的?

伊斯兰教有很多禁忌,其中最被人熟知的一个就是只能吃"清真食品"。 猪肉,还有很多乱七八糟的东西都不能吃。

中国很多奇奇怪怪的食物都是源于饥荒,比如狗肉。甚至现在你也无法判断路边摊的羊肉串里面到底是什么。

人类发展史中,会不可避免地遇到灾荒。那个时候,伊斯兰社会是怎么面对的呢?

"Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine, and that on which has been invoked the name of other than Allah; that which hath been killed by strangling, or by a violent blow, or by a headlong fall, or by being gored to death; that which hath been (partly) eaten by a wild animal; unless ye are able to slaughter it (in due form); that which is sacrificed on stone (altars); (forbidden) also is the division (of meat) by raffling with arrows: that is impiety. This day have those who reject faith given up all hope of your religion: yet fear them not but fear Me. This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. But if any is forced by hunger, with no inclination to transgression, Allah is indeed Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful."

— Qurʼan, Surah 5 (al-Maʼidah), ayah 3
