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.

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تُحِلُّوا شَعَائِرَ اللَّهِ وَلَا الشَّهْرَ الْحَرَامَ وَلَا الْهَدْيَ وَلَا الْقَلَائِدَ وَلَا آمِّينَ الْبَيْتَ الْحَرَامَ يَبْتَغُونَ فَضْلًا مِنْ رَبِّهِمْ وَرِضْوَانًا ۚ وَإِذَا حَلَلْتُمْ فَاصْطَادُوا ۚ وَلَا يَجْرِمَنَّكُمْ شَنَآنُ قَوْمٍ أَنْ صَدُّوكُمْ عَنِ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ أَنْ تَعْتَدُوا ۘ وَتَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْبِرِّ وَالتَّقْوَىٰ ۖ وَلَا تَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْإِثْمِ وَالْعُدْوَانِ ۚ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ ۖ إِنَّ اللَّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ ﴿٢﴾
٢ - مومنو! خدا کے نام کی چیزوں کی بےحرمتی نہ کرنا اور نہ ادب کے مہینے کی اور نہ قربانی کے جانوروں کی اور نہ ان جانوروں کی (جو خدا کی نذر کر دیئے گئے ہوں اور) جن کے گلوں میں پٹے بندھے ہوں اور نہ ان لوگوں کی جو عزت کے گھر (یعنی بیت اللہ) کو جا رہے ہوں (اور) اپنے پروردگار کے فضل اور اس کی خوشنودی کے طلبگار ہوں اور جب احرام اتار دو تو (پھر اختیار ہے کہ) شکار کرو اور لوگوں کی دشمنی اس وجہ سے کہ انہوں نے تم کو عزت والی مسجد سے روکا تھا تمہیں اس بات پر آمادہ نہ کرے کہ تم ان پر زیادتی کرنے لگو اور (دیکھو) نیکی اور پرہیزگاری کے کاموں میں ایک دوسرے کی مدد کیا کرو اور گناہ اور ظلم کی باتوں میں مدد نہ کیا کرو اور خدا سے ڈرتے رہو۔ کچھ شک نہیں کہ خدا کا عذاب سخت ہے .
[5:2] O you who have believed, do not violate the rites of Allah or [the sanctity of] the sacred month or [neglect the marking of] the sacrificial animals and garlanding [them] or [violate the safety of] those coming to the Sacred House seeking bounty from their Lord and [His] approval. But when you come out of ihram, then [you may] hunt. And do not let the hatred of a people for having obstructed you from al-Masjid al-Haram lead you to transgress. And cooperate in righteousness and piety, but do not cooperate in sin and aggression. And fear Allah; indeed, Allah is severe in penalty.
