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.

١٧ - جو لوگ اس بات کے قائل ہیں کہ عیسیٰ بن مریم خدا ہیں وہ بےشک کافر ہیں (ان سے) کہہ دو کہ اگر خدا عیسیٰ بن مریم کو اور ان کی والدہ کو اور جتنے لوگ زمین میں ہیں سب کو ہلاک کرنا چاہے تو اس کے آگے کس کی پیش چل سکتی ہے؟ اور آسمان اور زمین اور جو کچھ ان دونوں میں ہے سب پر خدا ہی کی بادشاہی ہے وہ جو چاہتا ہے پیدا کرتا ہے اور خدا ہر چیز پر قادر ہے .
[5:17] They have certainly disbelieved who say that Allah is Christ, the son of Mary. Say, "Then who could prevent Allah at all if He had intended to destroy Christ, the son of Mary, or his mother or everyone on the earth?" And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them. He creates what He wills, and Allah is over all things competent.
