Surah al-Baqarah (Arabic: سورة البقرة, Sūratu l-Baqarah, "The Cow") is the Qur'an's second and longest chapter. It is a Medinan sura and comprises 286 verses, including the single longest verse in the Qur'an (2:28
2). The sura's name references verses 67--73 which recall the story of the golden calf worshipped as an idol by the Israelites during Moses' absence.
Other notable passages include the famous āyat al-kursī or "Throne Verse", as well as the closing two verses which outline the six articles of belief before forming a prayer for forgiveness, divine mercy, and help against the enemies of faith.
