    it is forbidden for it

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-It is forbidden for people to be arrested without sufficient grounds.

    2-It is forbidden for an unclean animal to be consumed as food.

    3-It is prohibited for people to be arrested without sufficient grounds.

    4-It is prohibited for an unclean animal to be consumed as food.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: it is forbidden for it

    All four are correct and natural. Forbidden and prohibited are pretty much identical in meaning. In terms of connotation, perhaps God and one's father are a little more likely to be said to forbid, while prohibition is slightly more likely to be done by government. But it is a distinction so tiny as to be negligible.
