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.

إِنَّمَا مَثَلُ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا كَمَاءٍ أَنْزَلْنَاهُ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ فَاخْتَلَطَ بِهِ نَبَاتُ الْأَرْضِ مِمَّا يَأْكُلُ النَّاسُ وَالْأَنْعَامُ حَتَّىٰ إِذَا أَخَذَتِ الْأَرْضُ زُخْرُفَهَا وَازَّيَّنَتْ وَظَنَّ أَهْلُهَا أَنَّهُمْ قَادِرُونَ عَلَيْهَا أَتَاهَا أَمْرُنَا لَيْلًا أَوْ نَهَارًا فَجَعَلْنَاهَا حَصِيدًا كَأَنْ لَمْ تَغْنَ بِالْأَمْسِ ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ نُفَصِّلُ الْآيَاتِ لِقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ ﴿٢٤﴾
٢٤ - دنیا کی زندگی کی مثال مینھہ کی سی ہے کہ ہم نے اس کو آسمان سے برسایا۔ پھر اس کے ساتھ سبزہ جسے آدمی اور جانور کھاتے ہیں مل کر نکلا یہاں تک کہ زمین سبزے سے خوشنما اور آراستہ ہوگئی اور زمین والوں نے خیال کیا کہ وہ اس پر پوری دسترس رکھتے ہیں ناگہاں رات کو یا دن کو ہمارا حکم (عذاب) آپہنچا تو ہم نے اس کو کاٹ (کر ایسا کر) ڈالا کہ گویا کل وہاں کچھ تھا ہی نہیں۔ جو لوگ غور کرنے والے ہیں۔ ان کے لیے ہم (اپنی قدرت کی) نشانیاں اسی طرح کھول کھول کر بیان کرتے ہیں .
[10:24] The example of [this] worldly life is but like rain which We have sent down from the sky that the plants of the earth absorb - [those] from which men and livestock eat - until, when the earth has taken on its adornment and is beautified and its people suppose that they have capability over it, there comes to it Our command by night or by day, and We make it as a harvest, as if it had not flourished yesterday. Thus do We explain in detail the signs for a people who give thought.
