So his example (is) like (the) example (of) the dog, if you attack [on] him, he lolls out his tongue or if you leave him, he lolls out his tongue.

They ask you what (is) made lawful for them. Say, "Are made lawful for you the good things and what you have taught of (your) hunting animals, ones who train animals to hunt you teach them of what has taught you Allah. So eat of what they catch for you, but mention (the) name (of) Allah on it, and fear Allah. Indeed, Allah is swift (in taking) account.
