يٰأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ كُلُواْ مِن طَيِّبَاتِ مَا رَزَقْنَاكُمْ وَٱشْكُرُواْ للَّهِ إِن كُنْتُمْ إِيَّاهُ تَعْبُدُونَ
-Al-Baqarah ( البقرة )

Al Qushairi Tafsir

O you who believe, eat of the good things (Ṭayyibāt) wherewith We have provided you, and give thanks to God if it be Him that you worship.
The permitted (ḥalāl) is that for which there is no [bad] consequence. The good thing (Ṭayyib) is that thing whose blessing is not attributed to any created thing. When the servant finds something that combines these two qualities, it is permitted and good.
The true meaning of thankfulness to Him is that you do not take a breath in anything other than the pleasure of the Real, so long as the energy given to you by that [permitted and good] food remains.
