5. THE FOOD

The fifth surah of the Quran contains some information about food and food laws, a description of wudu/ablution, and a miracle. In this surah, the rules for permitted and forbidden food are established.

  • What foods do we eat and what foods do we not eat as Muslims?
  • Have we ever heard another story where there was a forbidden food?

There is a description of the ritual ablution that we perform before prayer.

  • What is wudu?
  • Why do we make wudu before we pray?

In this chapter, the miracle of the table is described where the people asked Prophet Isa (a) for a miracle and Allah (s) sent the table down with food.

  • When Prophet Isa (a) asked Allah (s) to bring down the table as a miracle what happened?
  • What would you think if a table came down with endless food?
