Secondary meanings of a sentence, whether declarative or imperative, refer to the intentions and purposes of producing that sentence and they are different from its literal meaning. For instance, the holy verse "My Lord, surely I have brought it forth a female" (رَبِّ إِنِّی وَضَعْتُهَا أُنثَى) which is an utterance by the mother of Jesus Christ (PBUH), refers, on the surface, to the female sex of the infant, whereas the ultimate purpose of this utterance is to express sorrow at the birth of this female infant. The present paper examines the verses of the holy chapter "The Cow" from this perspective.
