The main theme of Leviticus is “holiness.” This section of the holy Taurat contains regulations for various sacrifices, as well as regulations for the cleansing of Bani-Israel so that they could worship acceptably. It was also valuable information for the priests who led Israel in corporate worship. Exodus finished with the subject of constructing the special worship tent, sometimes called the Tabernacle. But Leviticus continues by explaining the duties and responsibilities of those who worked in the special worship tent. It also describes the details of how Bani-Israel could separate themselves from the evil practices of the surrounding nations. Furthermore, it says that Bani-Israel must distance themselves from all sin and unholy activity if they would draw near to Allah in acceptable worship. Allah wants his people to be pure and holy, because he himself is pure and holy.
