02.067  And remember Moses said to his people: "God commands that ye sacrifice a 
heifer." They said: "Makest thou a laughing-stock of us?" He said: "God save me 
from being an ignorant (fool)!"

002.068  They said: "Beseech on our behalf Thy Lord to make plain to us what 
(heifer) it is!" He said; "He says: The heifer should be neither too old nor too young, 
but of middling age. Now do what ye are commanded!"

002.069  They said: "Beseech on our behalf Thy Lord to make plain to us Her 
colour." He said: "He says: A fawn-coloured heifer, pure and rich in tone, the 
admiration of beholders!"

002.070  They said: "Beseech on our behalf Thy Lord to make plain to us what she is: 
To us are all heifers alike: We wish indeed for guidance, if God wills."

 

 

002.071  He said: "He says: A heifer not trained to till the soil or water the fields; 
sound and without blemish." They said: "Now hast thou brought the truth." Then they 
offered her in sacrifice, but not with good-will.

002.072  Remember ye slew a man and fell into a dispute among yourselves as to the 
crime: But God was to bring forth what ye did hide.

002.073  So We said: "Strike the (body) with a piece of the (heifer)." Thus God 
bringeth the dead to life and showeth you His Signs: Perchance ye may understand.

002.074  Thenceforth were your hearts hardened: They became like a rock and even 
worse in hardness. For among rocks there are some from which rivers gush forth; 
others there are which when split asunder send forth water; and others which sink for 
fear of God. And God is not unmindful of what ye do.
