The surah that mentions an ancient prophet after Noah named Hūd, whom God sent to the mighty people of ʿĀd, the dwellers of a great pillared city called Iram. It is named after Hūd, whose account is given in verse 50 ff. The surah begins by announcing that the Prophet is sent both to warn and to give good news, and the body of the surah focuses on the warning aspect: God watches over everything and is aware of all that people do (verse 5 ff., verse 111ff. and verse 123). The many stories of past prophets, which serve to warn the disbelievers, also strengthen the heart of the Prophet (verse 120).
The surah is also known as: Hood, Hud (The Messenger), The Prophet Hud.

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

وَأَنِ اسْتَغْفِرُوا رَبَّكُمْ ثُمَّ تُوبُوا إِلَيْهِ يُمَتِّعْكُمْ مَتَاعًا حَسَنًا إِلَىٰ أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى وَيُؤْتِ كُلَّ ذِي فَضْلٍ فَضْلَهُ ۖ وَإِنْ تَوَلَّوْا فَإِنِّي أَخَافُ عَلَيْكُمْ عَذَابَ يَوْمٍ كَبِيرٍ ﴿٣﴾
٣ - اور یہ کہ اپنے پروردگار سے بخشش مانگو اور اس کے آگے توبہ کرو وہ تو تم کو ایک وقت مقررہ تک متاع نیک سے بہرہ مند کرے گا اور ہر صاحب بزرگ کو اس کی بزرگی (کی داد) دے گا۔ اور اگر روگردانی کرو گے تو مجھے تمہارے بارے میں (قیامت کے) بڑے دن کے عذاب کا ڈر ہے .
[11:3] And [saying], "Seek forgiveness of your Lord and repent to Him, [and] He will let you enjoy a good provision for a specified term and give every doer of favor his favor. But if you turn away, then indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a great Day.
