Surah 5. Al Maaedah – The Heavenly System of Sustenance

[Author's Note] This is the fifth Surah of the Qur’an and it has 120 verses. Establishment of the Divine System ensures Divine bounties on everyone’s table spread. Important dietary laws are given in this Surah. All herbivorous quadrupeds are permissible for human consumption with the exceptions noted in 5:3 and 2:173. Intoxicants are strictly forbidden although the word Haraam has not been used for them probably because they do not belong to the category of food. Unjust killing of a single human being is like killing all mankind and saving one life is like saving all humanity. The Surah includes commands about gambling, games of chance, marriage, theft, ablution, hunting, making a will, and other diverse subjects. Prophet Abraham is the Patriarch of faith for Jews, Christians and Muslims. It states that God has perfected His System of Life and that the Qur’an is the comprehensive guide for all humanity.
