AL-AMBIA


وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا قَبْلَكَ إِلَّا رِجَالًا نُوحِي إِلَيْهِمْ ۖ فَاسْأَلُوا أَهْلَ الذِّكْرِ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ ﴿٧﴾
٧ - اور ہم نے تم سے پہلے مرد ہی (پیغمبر بنا کر) بھیجے جن کی طرف ہم وحی بھیجتے تھے۔ اگر تم نہیں جانتے تو جو یاد رکھتے ہیں ان سے پوچھ لو .
[21:7] And We sent not before you, [O Muhammad], except men to whom We revealed [the message], so ask the people of the message if you do not know.
[Transliteration] Wa maaa arsalnaa qablaka illaa rijaalan nooheee ilaihim fas'aloo ahlaz zikri in kuntum laa ta'lamoon

وَمَا جَعَلْنَاهُمْ جَسَدًا لَا يَأْكُلُونَ الطَّعَامَ وَمَا كَانُوا خَالِدِينَ ﴿٨﴾
٨ - اور ہم نے ان کے لئے ایسے جسم نہیں بنائے تھے کہ کھانا نہ کھائیں اور نہ وہ ہمیشہ رہنے والے تھے .
[21:8] And We did not make the prophets forms not eating food, nor were they immortal [on earth].
[Transliteration] Wa maa ja'alnaahum jasadal laa yaakuloonat ta'aama wa maa kaanoo khaalideen
