سورة المائدة

5. Al-Maeda

The Table Spread

Total verses: 120
Revealed in: Medina

- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)

The surah that mentions the story of from Heaven that God sent down at the request of the Disciples to be a clear sign to them of the unambiguous truth that Jesus was, indeed, the awaited Messiah and Prophet of God. It takes its name from "the table" (al-māʾidah) mentioned in verse 112 ff. A central theme of this surah is the regulation of lawful and unlawful food, obedience to which is part of the pledge between God and the believers (verse 1ff. and verse 87 ff.). Part of the surah concerns hunting for food during the pilgrimage and respect for the rites of pilgrimage. God had also taken pledges from the Jews and Christians and the section between verse 13 and verse 86 deals with what these two communities did to their pledges, and with their relationships with the Muslims. The passage from verse 109 ff. deals with the afterlife and the verdict of the messengers on the behaviour of their respective communities. Jesus, in particular, is given prominence here: mention is made of the feast for which his disciples asked him to pray to God, which gives the surah its title, and of his renunciation of any claim to divinity.
The surah is also known as: The Feast, The Heavenly Food, The Repast, The Table-spread.

وَإِذْ قَالَ اللَّهُ يَا عِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ أَأَنْتَ قُلْتَ لِلنَّاسِ اتَّخِذُونِي وَأُمِّيَ إِلَٰهَيْنِ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ ۖ قَالَ سُبْحَانَكَ مَا يَكُونُ لِي أَنْ أَقُولَ مَا لَيْسَ لِي بِحَقٍّ ۚ إِنْ كُنْتُ قُلْتُهُ فَقَدْ عَلِمْتَهُ ۚ تَعْلَمُ مَا فِي نَفْسِي وَلَا أَعْلَمُ مَا فِي نَفْسِكَ ۚ إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ عَلَّامُ الْغُيُوبِ ﴿١١٦﴾
١١٦ - اور (اس وقت کو بھی یاد رکھو) جب خدا فرمائے گا کہ اے عیسیٰ بن مریم! کیا تم نے لوگوں سے کہا تھا کہ خدا کے سوا مجھے اور میری والدہ کو معبود مقرر کرو؟ وہ کہیں گے کہ تو پاک ہے مجھے کب شایاں تھا کہ میں ایسی بات کہتا جس کا مجھے کچھ حق نہیں اگر میں نے ایسا کہا ہوگا تو تجھ کو معلوم ہوگا (کیونکہ) جو بات میرے دل میں ہے تو اسے جانتا ہے اور جو تیرے ضمیر میں ہے اسے میں نہیں جانتا بےشک تو علاّم الغیوب ہے .
[5:116] And [beware the Day] when Allah will say, "O Jesus, Son of Mary, did you say to the people, 'Take me and my mother as deities besides Allah?'" He will say, "Exalted are You! It was not for me to say that to which I have no right. If I had said it, You would have known it. You know what is within myself, and I do not know what is within Yourself. Indeed, it is You who is Knower of the unseen.
