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.

قُلْ لَا أَمْلِكُ لِنَفْسِي ضَرًّا وَلَا نَفْعًا إِلَّا مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ ۗ لِكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ أَجَلٌ ۚ إِذَا جَاءَ أَجَلُهُمْ فَلَا يَسْتَأْخِرُونَ سَاعَةً ۖ وَلَا يَسْتَقْدِمُونَ ﴿٤٩﴾
٤٩ - کہہ دو کہ میں اپنے نقصان اور فائدے کا بھی کچھ اختیار نہیں رکھتا۔ مگر جو خدا چاہے۔ ہر ایک امت کے لیے (موت کا) ایک وقت مقرر ہے۔ جب وہ وقت آجاتا ہے تو ایک گھڑی بھی دیر نہیں کرسکتے اور نہ جلدی کرسکتے ہیں .
[10:49] Say, "I possess not for myself any harm or benefit except what Allah should will. For every nation is a [specified] term. When their time has come, then they will not remain behind an hour, nor will they precede [it]."
[Transliteration] Qul laaa amliku linafsee darranw wa laa naf'an illaa maa shaaa'al laah, likulli ummatin ajalun izaa jaaa'a ajaluhum falaaa yastaakhiroona saa'a tanw wa laa yastaqdimoon

قُلْ أَرَأَيْتُمْ إِنْ أَتَاكُمْ عَذَابُهُ بَيَاتًا أَوْ نَهَارًا مَاذَا يَسْتَعْجِلُ مِنْهُ الْمُجْرِمُونَ ﴿٥٠﴾
٥٠ - کہہ دو کہ بھلا دیکھو تو اگر اس کا عذاب تم پر (ناگہاں) آجائے رات کو یا دن کو تو پھر گنہگار کس بات کی جلدی کریں گے .
[10:50] Say, "Have you considered: if His punishment should come to you by night or by day - for which [aspect] of it would the criminals be impatient?"

أَثُمَّ إِذَا مَا وَقَعَ آمَنْتُمْ بِهِ ۚ آلْآنَ وَقَدْ كُنْتُمْ بِهِ تَسْتَعْجِلُونَ ﴿٥١﴾
٥١ - کیا جب وہ آ واقع ہوگا تب اس پر ایمان لاؤ گے (اس وقت کہا جائے گا کہ) اور اب (ایمان لائے؟) اس کے لیے تو تم جلدی مچایا کرتے تھے .
[10:51] Then is it that when it has [actually] occurred you will believe in it? Now? And you were [once] for it impatient

ثُمَّ قِيلَ لِلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا ذُوقُوا عَذَابَ الْخُلْدِ هَلْ تُجْزَوْنَ إِلَّا بِمَا كُنْتُمْ تَكْسِبُونَ ﴿٥٢﴾
٥٢ - پھر ظالم لوگوں سے کہا جائے گا کہ عذاب دائمی کا مزہ چکھو۔ (اب) تم انہیں (اعمال) کا بدلہ پاؤ گے جو (دنیا میں) کرتے رہے .
[10:52] Then it will be said to those who had wronged, "Taste the punishment of eternity; are you being recompensed except for what you used to earn?"
