AL BAQARAH (THE COW)
[Baqarah 2:1] Alif-Laam-Meem. (Alphabets of the Arabic language; Allah and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.)
[Baqarah 2:2] This is the exalted Book (the Qur’an), in which there is no place for doubt; a guidance for the pious.
[Baqarah 2:3] Those who believe without seeing (the hidden), and keep the (obligatory) prayer established, and spend in Our cause from what We have bestowed upon them.
[Baqarah 2:4] And who believe in this (Qur’an) which has been sent down upon you, O beloved Prophet, (Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him) and what was sent down before you; and are certain of the Hereafter.
[Baqarah 2:5] It is they who are on guidance from their Lord; and they are the successful.
