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.

Detailed verse by verse explanation of Quran in Urdu by Late Dr. Israr Ahmad.

وَلُوطًا آتَيْنَاهُ حُكْمًا وَعِلْمًا وَنَجَّيْنَاهُ مِنَ الْقَرْيَةِ الَّتِي كَانَتْ تَعْمَلُ الْخَبَائِثَ ۗ إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا قَوْمَ سَوْءٍ فَاسِقِينَ ﴿٧٤﴾
٧٤ - اور لوط (کا قصہ یاد کرو) جب ان کو ہم نے حکم (یعنی حکمت ونبوت) اور علم بخشا اور اس بستی سے جہاں کے لوگ گندے کام کیا کرتے تھے۔ بچا نکالا۔ بےشک وہ برے اور بدکردار لوگ تھے .
[21:74] And to Lot We gave judgement and knowledge, and We saved him from the city that was committing wicked deeds. Indeed, they were a people of evil, defiantly disobedient.
[Transliteration] Wa Lootan aatainaahu hukmanw wa 'ilmanw wa najjainaahu minal qaryatil latee kaanat ta'malul khabaaa'is, innahum kaanoo qawma saw'in faasiqeen
