The Thunder

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

- 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.

Tafsir (Bayanul Quran):
Detailed verse by verse explanation of Quran in Urdu by Late Dr. Israr Ahmad.

لِلَّذِينَ اسْتَجَابُوا لِرَبِّهِمُ الْحُسْنَىٰ ۚ وَالَّذِينَ لَمْ يَسْتَجِيبُوا لَهُ لَوْ أَنَّ لَهُمْ مَا فِي الْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا وَمِثْلَهُ مَعَهُ لَافْتَدَوْا بِهِ ۚ أُولَٰئِكَ لَهُمْ سُوءُ الْحِسَابِ وَمَأْوَاهُمْ جَهَنَّمُ ۖ وَبِئْسَ الْمِهَادُ ﴿١٨﴾
١٨ - جن لوگوں نے خدا کے حکم کو قبول کیا ان کی حالت بہت بہتر ہوگی۔ اور جنہوں نے اس کو قبول نہ کیا اگر روئے زمین کے سب خزانے ان کے اختیار میں ہوں تو وہ سب کے سب اور ان کے ساتھ اتنے ہی اور (نجات کے) بدلے میں صرف کرڈالیں (مگر نجات کہاں؟) ایسے لوگوں کا حساب بھی برا ہوگا۔ اور ان کا ٹھکانا بھی دوزخ ہے۔ اور وہ بری جگہ ہے .
[13:18] For those who have responded to their Lord is the best [reward], but those who did not respond to Him - if they had all that is in the earth entirely and the like of it with it, they would [attempt to] ransom themselves thereby. Those will have the worst account, and their refuge is Hell, and wretched is the resting place.
[Transliteration] Lillazeenas tajaaboo lirabbihimul husnaa, wallazeena lam yastajeeboo lahoo law anna lahum maa fil ardi jamee'anw wa mislahoo ma'ahoo laftadaw bih, ulaaa'ika lahum sooo'ul hisaab, wa maawaahum Jahannamu wa bi'sal mihaad
