The Thunder

Total verses: 43

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.

وَكَذَٰلِكَ أَنْزَلْنَاهُ حُكْمًا عَرَبِيًّا ۚ وَلَئِنِ اتَّبَعْتَ أَهْوَاءَهُمْ بَعْدَمَا جَاءَكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ مَا لَكَ مِنَ اللَّهِ مِنْ وَلِيٍّ وَلَا وَاقٍ ﴿٣٧﴾
٣٧ - اور اسی طرح ہم نے اس قرآن کو عربی زبان کا فرمان نازل کیا ہے۔ اور اگر تم علم (ودانش) آنے کے بعد ان لوگوں کی خواہشوں کے پیچھے چلو گے تو خدا کے سامنے کوئی نہ تمہارا مددگار ہوگا اور نہ کوئی بچانے والا .
[13:37] And thus We have revealed it as an Arabic legislation. And if you should follow their inclinations after what has come to you of knowledge, you would not have against Allah any ally or any protector.
