Question: What is the wisdom in that Surah al-Baqarah - the longest? (anonymous)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious to all in this world and in the next world only the Merciful to the believers.
As-Salam Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh!
Yes, Surah al-Baqarah is the longest sura in the Quran. With regards to the same wisdom that it is, I would like to quote from the book "Itkan" of Imam Suyut: "Surah al-Baqarah contains more than the other verses, orders and prohibitions. It is full of orders, prohibitions, examples, and news. Moreover, it is the head of all goods (Barakat)".
And Allah knows best.
