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

The surah that mentions the names of sixteen of The Prophets and Mary, illustrating the unity of the divine message. Accounts of several prophets (anbiyāʾ) appear in this surah from verse 48 ff., hence its name. The surah stresses that fact that Muḥammad is a man like earlier prophets, and has been given the same message to declare the unity of God. It warns the disbelievers of the approaching Judgement from which there is no escape.

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

يَوْمَ نَطْوِي السَّمَاءَ كَطَيِّ السِّجِلِّ لِلْكُتُبِ ۚ كَمَا بَدَأْنَا أَوَّلَ خَلْقٍ نُعِيدُهُ ۚ وَعْدًا عَلَيْنَا ۚ إِنَّا كُنَّا فَاعِلِينَ ﴿١٠٤﴾
١٠٤ - جس دن ہم آسمان کو اس طرح لپیٹ لیں گے جیسے خطوں کا طومار لپیٹ لیتے ہیں۔ جس طرح ہم نے (کائنات کو) پہلے پیدا کیا اسی طرح دوبارہ پیدا کردیں گے۔ (یہ) وعدہ (جس کا پورا کرنا لازم) ہے۔ ہم (ایسا) ضرور کرنے والے ہیں .
[21:104] The Day when We will fold the heaven like the folding of a [written] sheet for the records. As We began the first creation, We will repeat it. [That is] a promise binding upon Us. Indeed, We will do it.
[Transliteration] Yawma natwis samaaa'a kataiyis sijilli lilkutub, kamaa badaanaa awwala khalqin nu'eeduh, wa'dan 'alainaa, innaa kunna faa'ileen
