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

The surah that mentions the ancient and might people of Thamūd that lived in a place or region named Ḥijr, and whom God destroyed because they belied with extreme prejudice His miraculous signs and messengers. It takes its name from Ḥijr (mentioned in verse 80 ). The people of Thamūd are an example of the many who disbelieved and rejected their prophets. Each has its own time for punishment so the Prophet should bear patiently, not grieve over what the disbelievers say, and continue with his worship.
The surah is also known as: Stoneland, The Rocky Tract, The Stone Valley.

لَا تَمُدَّنَّ عَيْنَيْكَ إِلَىٰ مَا مَتَّعْنَا بِهِ أَزْوَاجًا مِنْهُمْ وَلَا تَحْزَنْ عَلَيْهِمْ وَاخْفِضْ جَنَاحَكَ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿٨٨﴾
٨٨ - اور ہم نے کفار کی کئی جماعتوں کو جو (فوائد دنیاوی سے) متمتع کیا ہے تم ان کی طرف (رغبت سے) آنکھ اٹھا کر نہ دیکھنا اور نہ ان کے حال پر تاسف کرنا اور مومنوں سے خاطر اور تواضع سے پیش آنا .
[15:88] Do not extend your eyes toward that by which We have given enjoyment to [certain] categories of the disbelievers, and do not grieve over them. And lower your wing to the believers
