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.
Surah 2 / 286 Verses / Revealed At Madinah

Al-Baqarah

In the name of God, the All-Merciful, the Mercy-Giving

2:1 Alif Lâm Mîm

2:2 This is the ˹Book of God˺.
There is no doubt therein.
It is guidance for the God-fearing:
2:3 Those who believe
in the ˹realms of the˺ unseen,
and who ˹duly˺ establish the Prayer
˹set by God˺,
and who spend ˹charitably˺
out of what We have provided them;
2:4 and those who ˹further˺ believe in ˹this Quran˺
that has been sent down to you,
˹O Muhammad, as a revelation from God˺
and ˹who believe in the Scripture˺
that has been sent down ˹to the prophets
who came˺ before you,
and those who, ˹within themselves,˺
have ˹utter˺ certainty
of ˹the imminence of˺ the Hereafter.
2:5 It is these who are ˹advancing˺
upon ˹the path of˺ guidance from their Lord.
And so it is these who are the ˹truly˺ successful.
