You are already aware of those of you who broke the Sabbath. We said to them, “Be disgraced apes!”1

So We made their fate an example to present and future generations, and a lesson to the God-fearing.

And ˹remember˺ when Moses said to his people, “Allah commands you to sacrifice a cow.”1 They replied, “Are you mocking us?” Moses responded, “I seek refuge in Allah from acting foolishly!”

They said, “Call upon your Lord to clarify for us what type ˹of cow˺ it should be!” He replied, “Allah says, ‘The cow should neither be old nor young but in between. So do as you are commanded!’”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

They said, “Call upon your Lord to specify for us its colour.” He replied, “Allah says, ‘It should be a bright yellow cow—pleasant to see.’”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Again they said, “Call upon your Lord so that He may make clear to us which cow, for all cows look the same to us. Then, Allah willing, we will be guided ˹to the right one˺.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Even then your hearts became hardened like a rock or even harder, for some rocks gush rivers; others split, spilling water; while others are humbled in awe of Allah. And Allah is never unaware of what you do.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Do you ˹believers still˺ expect them to be true to you, though a group of them would hear the word of Allah then knowingly corrupt it after understanding it?

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
