Do not Easily Forbid A Thing For Your self

A man once asked the Messenger of Allah -peace and prayer of Allah be upon him-

“O Messenger of Allah, indeed, if I ate meat, I immediately went to my wife and my sexual desire was highly increased. Thus, I have forbidden meat for myself.”

Then Allah revealed His divine decree, ,

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ لاَ تُحَرِّمُواْ طَيِّبَاتِ مَا أَحَلَّ اللّهُ لَكُمْ وَلاَ تَعْتَدُواْ إِنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يُحِبُّ الْمُعْتَدِينَ. وَكُلُواْ مِمَّا رَزَقَكُمُ اللّهُ حَلاَلاً طَيِّباً وَاتَّقُواْ اللّهَ الَّذِيَ أَنتُم بِهِ مُؤْمِنُونَ

“Believers! Do not hold as unlawful the good things which Allah has made lawful to you,  and do not exceed the bounds of right. Allah does not love those who transgress the bounds of right. And partake of the lawful, good things which Allah has provided you as sustenance, and refrain from disobeying Allah in Whom you believe.” (QS. Al-Ma`idah/The Table Spread: 87–88)
