Prohibiting Lawful Food Brings Deprivation (16:112 – 16:114)

Prohibiting Lawful Food Brings Deprivation

[16:112] GOD cites the example of a community that used to be secure and prosperous, with provisions coming to it from everywhere. But then, it turned unappreciative of GOD’s blessings. Consequently, GOD caused them to taste the hardships of starvation and insecurity. Such is the requital for what they did.
[16:113] A messenger had gone to them from among them, but they rejected him. Consequently, the retribution struck them for their transgression.
[16:114] Therefore, you shall eat from GOD’s provisions everything that is lawful and good, and be appreciative of GOD’s blessings, if you do worship Him alone. 

How is prohibiting lawful food equate to being unappreciative?  

Blessings in Disguise

[7:94] Whenever we sent a prophet to any community, we afflicted its people with adversity and hardship, that they may implore. [7:95] Then we substituted peace and prosperity in place of that hardship. But alas, they turned heedless and said, “It was our parents who experienced that hardship before prosperity.” Consequently, we punished them suddenly when they least expected.
