سورة يونس

10. Yunus


Total verses: 109
Revealed in: Mecca

- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)

The surah that mentions the repentance of the people of the Prophet Jonah as an exception among the communities to whom the prophets came. They heeded Jonah’s call. Thus, God shed His grace upon them and exempted them from ruin. "Yūnus" is the Arabic for "Jonah", the prophet whose account appears in this surah (verse 98). It stresses God’s power, the authenticity of the Quran, and the fate of evildoers. God’s anger at those who consistently deny the truth of His revelations and signs is made clear, as is the fact that, were it not for His decision to await the Day of Resurrection, His judgement would already have fallen upon them. The Prophet is encouraged to be patient and reminded of the fact that he cannot force people to believe.

Detailed verse by verse explanation of Quran in Urdu by Late Dr. Israr Ahmad.

وَإِذَا مَسَّ الْإِنْسَانَ الضُّرُّ دَعَانَا لِجَنْبِهِ أَوْ قَاعِدًا أَوْ قَائِمًا فَلَمَّا كَشَفْنَا عَنْهُ ضُرَّهُ مَرَّ كَأَنْ لَمْ يَدْعُنَا إِلَىٰ ضُرٍّ مَسَّهُ ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ زُيِّنَ لِلْمُسْرِفِينَ مَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ ﴿١٢﴾
١٢ - اور جب انسان کو تکلیف پہنچتی ہے تو لیٹا اور بیٹھا اور کھڑا (ہر حال میں) ہمیں پکارتا ہے۔ پھر جب ہم اس تکلیف کو اس سے دور کر دیتے ہیں تو (بےلحاظ ہو جاتا ہے اور) اس طرح گزر جاتا ہے گویا کسی تکلیف پہنچنے پر ہمیں کبھی پکارا ہی نہ تھا۔ اسی طرح حد سے نکل جانے والوں کو ان کے اعمال آراستہ کرکے دکھائے گئے ہیں .
[10:12] And when affliction touches man, he calls upon Us, whether lying on his side or sitting or standing; but when We remove from him his affliction, he continues [in disobedience] as if he had never called upon Us to [remove] an affliction that touched him. Thus is made pleasing to the transgressors that which they have been doing
