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.

فَفَهَّمْنَاهَا سُلَيْمَانَ ۚ وَكُلًّا آتَيْنَا حُكْمًا وَعِلْمًا ۚ وَسَخَّرْنَا مَعَ دَاوُودَ الْجِبَالَ يُسَبِّحْنَ وَالطَّيْرَ ۚ وَكُنَّا فَاعِلِينَ ﴿٧٩﴾
٧٩ - تو ہم نے فیصلہ (کرنے کا طریق) سلیمان کو سمجھا دیا۔ اور ہم نے دونوں کو حکم (یعنی حکمت ونبوت) اور علم بخشا تھا۔ اور ہم نے پہاڑوں کو داؤد کا مسخر کردیا تھا کہ ان کے ساتھ تسبیح کرتے تھے اور جانوروں کو بھی (مسخر کردیا تھا اور ہم ہی ایسا) کرنے والے تھے .
[21:79] And We gave understanding of the case to Solomon, and to each [of them] We gave judgement and knowledge. And We subjected the mountains to exalt [Us], along with David and [also] the birds. And We were doing [that].
