سورة إبراهيم

14. Ibrahim


Total verses: 52
Revealed in: Mecca

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

The surah that records the prayer of Abraham for the security and perpetual godliness of the barren valley of Mecca, when, at God’s command, he settled his beloved wife Hagar and first son Ishmael there, in order to establish the perennial rites of the prayer, as well as other forms of worship, for all time on earth. It is named after Abraham, whose prayer appears in verse 35 ff. Throughout the surah the ungrateful are condemned, and the grateful commended. Abraham also asks that he and his descendants may be protected from idol-worship. This serves to remind the Meccans that they should shun the worship of idols.

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

وَلَا تَحْسَبَنَّ اللَّهَ غَافِلًا عَمَّا يَعْمَلُ الظَّالِمُونَ ۚ إِنَّمَا يُؤَخِّرُهُمْ لِيَوْمٍ تَشْخَصُ فِيهِ الْأَبْصَارُ ﴿٤٢﴾
٤٢ - اور (مومنو) مت خیال کرنا کہ یہ ظالم جو عمل کر رہے ہیں خدا ان سے بےخبر ہے۔ وہ ان کو اس دن تک مہلت دے رہا ہے جب کہ (دہشت کے سبب) آنکھیں کھلی کی کھلی رہ جائیں گی .
[14:42] And never think that Allah is unaware of what the wrongdoers do. He only delays them for a Day when eyes will stare [in horror].
[Transliteration] Wa laa tahsabannal laaha ghaafilan 'ammaa ya'maluz zaalimoon, innamaa yu'akh khiruhum li Yawmin tashkhasu feehil absaar
