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.

وَاتْلُ عَلَيْهِمْ نَبَأَ نُوحٍ إِذْ قَالَ لِقَوْمِهِ يَا قَوْمِ إِنْ كَانَ كَبُرَ عَلَيْكُمْ مَقَامِي وَتَذْكِيرِي بِآيَاتِ اللَّهِ فَعَلَى اللَّهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ فَأَجْمِعُوا أَمْرَكُمْ وَشُرَكَاءَكُمْ ثُمَّ لَا يَكُنْ أَمْرُكُمْ عَلَيْكُمْ غُمَّةً ثُمَّ اقْضُوا إِلَيَّ وَلَا تُنْظِرُونِ ﴿٧١﴾
٧١ - اور ان کو نوح کا قصہ پڑھ کر سنادو۔ جب انہوں نے اپنی قوم سے کہا کہ اے قوم! اگر تم کو میرا تم میں رہنا اور خدا کی آیتوں سے نصیحت کرنا ناگوار ہو تو میں خدا پر بھروسہ رکھتا ہوں۔ تم اپنے شریکوں کے ساتھ مل کر ایک کام (جو میرے بارے میں کرنا چاہو) مقرر کرلو اور وہ تمہاری تمام جماعت (کو معلوم ہوجائے اور کسی) سے پوشیدہ نہ رہے اور پھر وہ کام میرے حق میں کر گزرو اور مجھے مہلت نہ دو .
[10:71] And recite to them the news of Noah, when he said to his people, "O my people, if my residence and my reminding of the signs of Allah has become burdensome upon you - then I have relied upon Allah. So resolve upon your plan and [call upon] your associates. Then let not your plan be obscure to you. Then carry it out upon me and do not give me respite.
