And ˹remember˺ when Moses said to his people, “Allah commands you to sacrifice a cow.”1 They replied, “Are you mocking us?” Moses responded, “I seek refuge in Allah from acting foolishly!” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
They said, “Call upon your Lord to clarify for us what type ˹of cow˺ it should be!” He replied, “Allah says, ‘The cow should neither be old nor young but in between. So do as you are commanded!’” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
ﯿ
They said, “Call upon your Lord to specify for us its colour.” He replied, “Allah says, ‘It should be a bright yellow cow—pleasant to see.’” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
Again they said, “Call upon your Lord so that He may make clear to us which cow, for all cows look the same to us. Then, Allah willing, we will be guided ˹to the right one˺.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
He replied, “Allah says, ‘It should have been used neither to till the soil nor water the fields; wholesome and without blemish.’” They said, “Now you have come with the truth.” Yet they still slaughtered it hesitantly! Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
ﭿ
˹This is˺ when a man was killed and you disputed who the killer was, but Allah revealed what you concealed. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
So We instructed, “Strike the dead body with a piece of the cow.” This is how ˹easily˺ Allah brings the dead to life, showing you His signs so that you may understand. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
