Stating Haram

And do not say about what your tongues assert of untruth, “This is lawful and this is unlawful,” to invent falsehood about Allāh. Indeed, those who invent falsehood about Allāh will not succeed. [An Nahl:116]
We always fall into the trap of telling someone “Do not eat such and such it is haram” but this verse really made me realize that we as humans have no right to say what is halal or haram. Not even the prophet(saw) was able to change the lawful to unlawful so what makes us think we can? Never say something is halal or haram without having sound proof for it.
