Holy Cow !?!?

Chapter two of the Qur’ān is entitled al-Baqara, rendered into English as ‘the cow.’   It is the longest chapter of the Qur’ān containing a total of 286 verses and was revealed in Medina. Verses 67 to 74 recount an event following the Exodus of the Children of Israel from Egypt. Musa (Moses, peace be upon him) sets forth a command from the Lord for a cow to be slaughtered.
