The surah that mentions the story of The Cow designated by God for sacrificial offering, whereby He tested the sincerity of faith of the Children of Israel after their deliverance from Pharaoh. Its name is taken from the story of the cow (baqarah) mentioned in verse 67 ff. The surah comprises five principal sections, where the addressee shifts as the surah progresses. The first section (verse 1 ff.) mentions the revelation; the dynamics of belief and unbelief; and the story of Adam. The next section (verse 40 ff.) is an address to the Children of Israel, which highlights there shortcomings in the time of Moses and in Muḥammad’s own day. They are urged to serve God who has been so gracious to them (they are reminded that God created Adam and favoured him over the angels), the Children of Israel. This is followed (verse 122 ff.) by a final appeal to the Children of Israel to agree with the Muslims on the basis of the religion of Abraham, which predate the covenant with Moses. verse 135 ff. marks the beginning of the fourth section, which consists mainly of legal provisions for the newly-established community. The fifth and final section (verse 243 ff.) also contains some legislation, but the primary emphasis is on striving for God with your life and property. The last tree ayahs (verse 284 ff.), draw together a number of themes encountered earlier in the surah.
The surah is also known as The Heifer

وَالْوَالِدَاتُ يُرْضِعْنَ أَوْلَادَهُنَّ حَوْلَيْنِ كَامِلَيْنِ ۖ لِمَنْ أَرَادَ أَنْ يُتِمَّ الرَّضَاعَةَ ۚ وَعَلَى الْمَوْلُودِ لَهُ رِزْقُهُنَّ وَكِسْوَتُهُنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ ۚ لَا تُكَلَّفُ نَفْسٌ إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا ۚ لَا تُضَارَّ وَالِدَةٌ بِوَلَدِهَا وَلَا مَوْلُودٌ لَهُ بِوَلَدِهِ ۚ وَعَلَى الْوَارِثِ مِثْلُ ذَٰلِكَ ۗ فَإِنْ أَرَادَا فِصَالًا عَنْ تَرَاضٍ مِنْهُمَا وَتَشَاوُرٍ فَلَا جُنَاحَ عَلَيْهِمَا ۗ وَإِنْ أَرَدْتُمْ أَنْ تَسْتَرْضِعُوا أَوْلَادَكُمْ فَلَا جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذَا سَلَّمْتُمْ مَا آتَيْتُمْ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ ۗ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌ ﴿٢٣٣﴾
٢٣٣ - اور مائیں اپنے بچوں کو پورے دو سال دودھ پلائیں یہ (حکم) اس شخص کے لئے ہے جو پوری مدت تک دودھ پلوانا چاہے۔ اور دودھ پلانے والی ماؤں کا کھانا اور کپڑا دستور کے مطابق باپ کے ذمے ہوگا۔ کسی شخص کو اس کی طاقت سے زیادہ تکلیف نہیں دی جاتی (تو یاد رکھو کہ) نہ تو ماں کو اس کے بچے کے سبب نقصان پہنچایا جائے اور نہ باپ کو اس کی اولاد کی وجہ سے نقصان پہنچایا جائے اور اسی طرح (نان نفقہ) بچے کے وارث کے ذمے ہے۔ اور اگر دونوں (یعنی ماں باپ) آپس کی رضامندی اور صلاح سے بچے کا دودھ چھڑانا چاہیں تو ان پر کچھ گناہ نہیں۔ اور اگر تم اپنی اولاد کو دودھ پلوانا چاہو تو تم پر کچھ گناہ نہیں بشرطیکہ تم دودھ پلانے والیوں کو دستور کے مطابق ان کا حق جو تم نے دینا کیا تھا دے دو اور خدا سے ڈرتے رہو اور جان رکھو کہ جو کچھ تم کرتے ہو خدا اس کو دیکھ رہا ہے .
[2:233] Mothers may breastfeed their children two complete years for whoever wishes to complete the nursing [period]. Upon the father is the mothers' provision and their clothing according to what is acceptable. No person is charged with more than his capacity. No mother should be harmed through her child, and no father through his child. And upon the [father's] heir is [a duty] like that [of the father]. And if they both desire weaning through mutual consent from both of them and consultation, there is no blame upon either of them. And if you wish to have your children nursed by a substitute, there is no blame upon you as long as you give payment according to what is acceptable. And fear Allah and know that Allah is Seeing of what you do.
