02. Surah Al Baqarah (“The Cow”) by Shaikh Maher Al- Muaqly


The Cow or al-Baqarah is the second and longest chapter (sūrah) of the Qur’an. It consists of 286 verses 6,201 words and 25,500 letters. It is a Medinan surah, that is to say that it was revealed at Medina after the Hijrah, with the exception of a few verses which Muslims believe was revealed during the Farewell Pilgrimage, the last Hajj of Muhammad (pbuh).
