The Thunder


Total verses: 43
Revealed in: Mecca
Sajdah on verse: 15

Translations:
- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)


The surah that translates into human experience the overpowering meaning of what Thunder says when it resounds through the sky and God sends bolts to the earth. It takes its name from thunder (al-raʿd), mentioned in verse 13. The surah is distinguished by its moving description of God’s power and knowledge. Muḥammad’s place in a long tradition of prophets, none of whom could produce miracles on request, is stressed, and his role emphasized: it is only to deliver the message. God is the One who will call people to account for their deeds, and He is the witness for the truth of the message.

AR-RA'AD


أَنْزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً فَسَالَتْ أَوْدِيَةٌ بِقَدَرِهَا فَاحْتَمَلَ السَّيْلُ زَبَدًا رَابِيًا ۚ وَمِمَّا يُوقِدُونَ عَلَيْهِ فِي النَّارِ ابْتِغَاءَ حِلْيَةٍ أَوْ مَتَاعٍ زَبَدٌ مِثْلُهُ ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ يَضْرِبُ اللَّهُ الْحَقَّ وَالْبَاطِلَ ۚ فَأَمَّا الزَّبَدُ فَيَذْهَبُ جُفَاءً ۖ وَأَمَّا مَا يَنْفَعُ النَّاسَ فَيَمْكُثُ فِي الْأَرْضِ ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ يَضْرِبُ اللَّهُ الْأَمْثَالَ ﴿١٧﴾
١٧ - اسی نے آسمان سے مینہ برسایا پھر اس سے اپنے اپنے اندازے کے مطابق نالے بہہ نکلے پھر نالے پر پھولا ہوا جھاگ آگیا۔ اور جس چیز کو زیور یا کوئی اور سامان بنانے کے لیے آگ میں تپاتے ہیں اس میں بھی ایسا ہی جھاگ ہوتا ہے۔ اس طرح خدا حق اور باطل کی مثال بیان فرماتا ہے۔ سو جھاگ تو سوکھ کر زائل ہو جاتا ہے۔ اور (پانی) جو لوگوں کو فائدہ پہنچاتا ہے وہ زمین میں ٹھہرا رہتا ہے۔ اس طرح خدا (صحیح اور غلط کی) مثالیں بیان فرماتا ہے (تاکہ تم سمجھو) .
[13:17] He sends down from the sky, rain, and valleys flow according to their capacity, and the torrent carries a rising foam. And from that [ore] which they heat in the fire, desiring adornments and utensils, is a foam like it. Thus Allah presents [the example of] truth and falsehood. As for the foam, it vanishes, [being] cast off; but as for that which benefits the people, it remains on the earth. Thus does Allah present examples.
[Transliteration] Anzala minas samaaa'i maaa'an fasaalat awdiyatum biqadarihaa fahtamalas sailu zabadar raabiyaa, wa mimmmaa yooqidoona 'alaihi fin naarib tighaaa'a bilyatin aw mataa'in zabadum misluh, kazaalika yadribul laahul haqqa wal baatil, fa ammaz zabadu fa yazhabu jufaaa'aa, wa ammaa maa yanfa'un naasa fa yamkusu fil ard, kazaalika yadribul laahul amsaal
