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.

وَيَا قَوْمِ هَٰذِهِ نَاقَةُ اللَّهِ لَكُمْ آيَةً فَذَرُوهَا تَأْكُلْ فِي أَرْضِ اللَّهِ وَلَا تَمَسُّوهَا بِسُوءٍ فَيَأْخُذَكُمْ عَذَابٌ قَرِيبٌ ﴿٦٤﴾
٦٤ - اور یہ بھی کہا کہ اے قوم! یہ خدا کی اونٹنی تمہارے لیے ایک نشانی (یعنی معجزہ) ہے تو اس کو چھوڑ دو کہ خدا کی زمین میں (جہاں چاہے) چرے اور اس کو کسی طرح کی تکلیف نہ دینا ورنہ تمہیں جلد عذاب آپکڑے گا .
[11:64] And O my people, this is the she-camel of Allah - [she is] to you a sign. So let her feed upon Allah 's earth and do not touch her with harm, or you will be taken by an impending punishment."
