They said: “Call upon your Lord for us to make plain to us what it is. Verily, to us all cows are alike. And surely, if Allah wills, we shall be rightly guided (in regards to the cow that is to be sacrificed)”.
He (Moses) said: “He says: It is a cow neither trained to till the soil nor water the fields, sound, having no other color except bright yellow”. They said: “Now you have brought the truth; so they sacrificed her though they were near to not doing it”.
And (remember) when you killed a man and began to accuse one another (by concealing his murderer). But Allah brought forth what you concealed.
So We said: “Strike him (the dead man) with a piece of it (the cow) (when he was struck with it, the dead man was brought to life)”. Thus Allah brings the dead to life and shows you His Signs (proofs of His Omnipotence) so that you may understand.
Then, after that, your hearts were hardened (and turned gloomy) and became as stones or even worse in hardness. And indeed there are stones out of which rivers gush forth, and indeed, there are of them (stones) which split asunder so that water flows from them, and indeed there are of them (stones) which fall down for fear of Allah. And Allah is not Unaware of what you do.
Do you (faithful believers!) covet that they will believe in you, and a party from among them indeed used to hear the Word of Allah (the Torah), then they used to alter it knowingly after they understood it?
And when they (Jews) meet those who are “âmenû” (who wish to reach Allah before death), they say: “We believe (we became âmenû)”, but when they are alone one with another, they say: “Do you talk to them of what Allah has disclosed to you (about the description and the qualities of Prophet Muhammad) that they may argue with you about it before your Lord”? Have you (Jews) then no understanding (sense)?
