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.

وَجَاوَزْنَا بِبَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ الْبَحْرَ فَأَتْبَعَهُمْ فِرْعَوْنُ وَجُنُودُهُ بَغْيًا وَعَدْوًا ۖ حَتَّىٰ إِذَا أَدْرَكَهُ الْغَرَقُ قَالَ آمَنْتُ أَنَّهُ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا الَّذِي آمَنَتْ بِهِ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ وَأَنَا مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ ﴿٩٠﴾
٩٠ - اور ہم نے بنی اسرائیل کو دریا سے پار کردیا تو فرعون اور اس کے لشکر نے سرکشی اور تعدی سے ان کا تعاقب کیا۔ یہاں تک کہ جب اس کو غرق (کے عذاب) نے آپکڑا تو کہنے لگا کہ میں ایمان لایا کہ جس (خدا) پر بنی اسرائیل ایمان لائے ہیں اس کے سوا کوئی معبود نہیں اور میں فرمانبرداروں میں ہوں .
[10:90] And We took the Children of Israel across the sea, and Pharaoh and his soldiers pursued them in tyranny and enmity until, when drowning overtook him, he said, "I believe that there is no deity except that in whom the Children of Israel believe, and I am of the Muslims."
