THIS CHAPTER of 286 verses is arranged in forty sections. It, as well as Chapter 3 and Chapters 29-32 inclusive, begin with the mystic initials A.L.M. It dates from the first year after the Hijra or Transfer from Mecca to Madina, or around the year 623 A.D. It was revealed before Chapter 8 Booty, except for verse 281 (XXXVII) which was revealed at Mina, a suburb just east of Mecca, during the Farewell Pilgrimage shortly before the Prophet passed away. The title is taken from the Cow, or the Golden Calf, the story of which appears in section VIII below, and which Moses wanted the Children of Israel to sacrifice to God Alone. Because the chapter is quite long, it continues through two and a half of the thirty Parts into which the Quran is traditionally divided, and comprises more than one-tenth of the whole text of the holy Book. The chapter mostly concerns legislation promulgated during the Madinese period. begins with the majestic invocation to the Book which announces the first section, and then proceeds to describe disbelievers and those arrogant persons who take it upon themselves to dictate to others concerning religion. There is a parable on "The Gnat" in section III, and we proceed the story of Adam's creation in IV. Prayer is discussed in V , and we are told in vi that intercession is acceptable because God's face is to be found everywhere. The Direction Prayer, or our qibla, is dealt with in XVII-XVIII, and prayer itself once more in XXXI. Section XIX instructs us that we should simply strive to meet God Alone. Abraham is introduced to us at Mecca (XV) while his signs appEAR in XXXV. Fasting, the month of Ramaddan and God's care are other the discussed here (XXIII). Food is mentioned in XXI; virtue and retaliation in xxii; the Pilgrimage appears in XXV. Charity is prescribed in XXXV-XXXVI and we are told to favor the genteel poor who do not go around begging in public. Death and wills are treated in XXII; waste and bribery in XXIII. There is legislation against liquor and gambling in XXV, the loan business XXXVIII, while the matter of debts and loans is handled in XXXIX. Then follow such matters as orphans, the sin of associating others with our worship of God Alone, menstruation (XXVIII), marriage, oaths, divorce nursing mothers and widows (XXX). In Part III of the Quran, towards the end of this chapter, we offered the great vision of God's Seat or Throne, which embraces Heaven and Earth, and are admonished to observe tolerance (XXXIV). The chapter ends with a statement of the Islamic creed, given as this is generally recited by Muslims (XL). In the name of God, the Mercy-giving, the Merciful!

Any of you who is ill or on a journey [should choose] a number of other days. For those who can [scarcely] afford it, making up for it means feeding a poor man.

God knows how you have been deceiving yourselves, so He has relented towards you and pardoned you. Now [feel free to} frequent them and seek what God has prescribed for you. Eat and drink until the white streak [of dawn] can be distinguished by you from the black thread [of night] at daybreak. Then complete the Fast until nightfall and have no dealings with women while you are secluded at your devotions in the mosques. Such are God's limits, so do not attempt to cross them! Thus God explains His signs to mankind so they may do their duty.

Pilgrimage and the Experience for God's sake. If you are prevented from doing so, then make some offering available. Do not shave your heads until after the offering has reached its destination. For anyone of you who is ill or has some rash on his head, redemption means fasting, or some other act of charity or devotion. Once you feel safe, anyone who is enjoying the Experience along with the
Pilgrimage should [send along] whatever he may make available in the form of an offering. Whoever does not find any should fast three days during the
Pilgrimage and seven [more] when you return [home]; those make ten exactly. That is for anyone whose family is not present at the Hallowed Mosque. Heed God and know that God is Firm in retribution. (XXV)

Pilgrimage falls during specific months. Anyone who undertakes the

Yet all but a few of them drank some of it! When he and those who were along with him and believed had crossed over, they said: "We have no way today to prevail over Goliath and his troops!"

Abraham said: "God brings the sun from the East, so you bring it from the West." The man who disbelieved was dumbfounded. God does not guide such wrong-doing folk.

Let some literate person write [what goes on] between you properly; no literate person should refuse to write it down. Just as God has taught him, so let him write it down, and let the borrower dictate. May he heed God and not omit any part of it. If the borrower is feeble-minded or incapacitated or cannot manage to dictate himself, then let his guardian dictate it in all fairness, and seek out two witnesses from among your men-folk to act as witnesses. If there are not two men [available], then one man and two women [may serve] as witnesses from anyone you may approve of, so that if either of them should slip up, then the other woman may remind the other. Witnesses must not refuse [to serve] when they are called upon, nor try to get out of writing anything down whether it is small or large, along with its due date. Such [procedure] is more equitable so far as God is concerned and it makes for more valid testimony, as well as reducing the chances for doubt; unless it is some transaction handled on the spot that you pass around among yourselves, in which case it will not be held against you for not writing it down. Call in witnesses whenever you engage in trade, and let no literate man nor any witness feel obligated if you do so; that would be immoral on your part. Heed God, for God teaches you! God is Aware of everything. ‍‌ ‌‌ ‍‍‍‍ ‌‍‌ ‌‌‌‌ ‌‍‌‍‍‍‍‌ ‌‍‍‌ ‌ ‍‍‍‍‌‌ ‍‍‍ ۚ ‌‍‌ ‍ ۚ ‌‌ ‍ۚ ‍‍‍ ‌‍ ‍ ‌‍ ‌ ‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‌ۚ‍‍ ‍‍‍ ‌‌ ‌‌‌ ‍‌‌ ‌‌‌ ‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‍ ۚ‌ ‍ ۖ ‌ ‌‍‌ ‌‌‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‌‌ ‌‌‍‍‍ ‌‌‌ ‍‍‍‌ ‌‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‌‌ ۚ ‌‌ ‍‍‌‌‌ ‌‌‌‌ ‌ ‌ۚ ‌‌ ‍‌ ‌‌‍‍ ‍‍‍‍‍‌‌‌ ‌‌‌ ‌‌‌ ‌‍‍‌ ‍‍‌ ۚ ‌ ‌‍‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‌‍‍‍‍‌ ‍ ‌‌‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‌ ‌‌‍‌ ‌‌ ‍ۖ ‌‌ ‌‌‍‍ ‌‍ ‍‍ ‌ ‌‌ ‍‍‍ ‌‌ ‌ ۗ ‌‌‌ ‌‌‌‌ ۚ ‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‌‌ ‍‌ ‌‌ ‍‍‍‍ۚ ‌‌‌ ‍‍ ‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‍‌ۗ‍‍ۖۗ‍ ‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‌

If one of you entrusts (something to] another, the one who has been entrusted with it should hand over his security and he should heed God his Lord and not hide any testimony.
