Surah al-Baqarah and Ale-Imran
Many Surahs can be grouped in pairs, examples; Surah al-Falaq and an-Nas, Surah ad-Duha and Insharah, Surah Muzzamil and Mudathir, Surah al-Anfal and at-Tawbah, Surah ar-Rahman and al-Waqiah and here in this example, Surah al-Baqarah and Ale-Imran. Indeed, the Prophet is reported to have described both Surahs as 'Zahrawayn' (Two Lights of Guidance) - Lights of guidance for the Believers in their journey to God.
Just as a Surah is a self-contained whole, the interaction of Surah-pairs and not simply of individual Surahs, yield a wider, richer perspective for the study of the relationship between Qur’anic Surahs. This pairing is on the basis of the topics discussed, and each member of a pair has a complementary relation with one another.
