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.

أَلَمْ يَأْتِكُمْ نَبَأُ الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ قَوْمِ نُوحٍ وَعَادٍ وَثَمُودَ ۛ وَالَّذِينَ مِنْ بَعْدِهِمْ ۛ لَا يَعْلَمُهُمْ إِلَّا اللَّهُ ۚ جَاءَتْهُمْ رُسُلُهُمْ بِالْبَيِّنَاتِ فَرَدُّوا أَيْدِيَهُمْ فِي أَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَقَالُوا إِنَّا كَفَرْنَا بِمَا أُرْسِلْتُمْ بِهِ وَإِنَّا لَفِي شَكٍّ مِمَّا تَدْعُونَنَا إِلَيْهِ مُرِيبٍ ﴿٩﴾
٩ - بھلا تم کو ان لوگوں (کے حالات) کی خبر نہیں پہنچی جو تم سے پہلے تھے (یعنی) نوح اور عاد اور ثمود کی قوم۔ اور جو ان کے بعد تھے۔ جن کا علم خدا کے سوا کسی کو نہیں (جب) ان کے پاس پیغمبر نشانیاں لے کر آئے تو انہوں نے اپنے ہاتھ ان کے مونہوں پر رکھ دیئے (کہ خاموش رہو) اور کہنے لگے کہ ہم تو تمہاری رسالت کو تسلیم نہیں کرتے اور جس چیز کی طرف تم ہمیں بلاتے ہو ہم اس سے قوی شک میں ہیں .
[14:9] Has there not reached you the news of those before you - the people of Noah and 'Aad and Thamud and those after them? No one knows them but Allah. Their messengers brought them clear proofs, but they returned their hands to their mouths and said, "Indeed, we disbelieve in that with which you have been sent, and indeed we are, about that to which you invite us, in disquieting doubt."
