AN-NOOR


يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَتَّبِعُوا خُطُوَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ ۚ وَمَنْ يَتَّبِعْ خُطُوَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ فَإِنَّهُ يَأْمُرُ بِالْفَحْشَاءِ وَالْمُنْكَرِ ۚ وَلَوْلَا فَضْلُ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَتُهُ مَا زَكَىٰ مِنْكُمْ مِنْ أَحَدٍ أَبَدًا وَلَٰكِنَّ اللَّهَ يُزَكِّي مَنْ يَشَاءُ ۗ وَاللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ ﴿٢١﴾
٢١ - اے مومنو! شیطان کے قدموں پر نہ چلنا۔ اور جو شخص شیطان کے قدموں پر چلے گا تو شیطان تو بےحیائی (کی باتیں) اور برے کام ہی بتائے گا۔ اور اگر تم پر خدا کا فضل اور اس کی مہربانی نہ ہوتی تو ایک شخص بھی تم میں پاک نہ ہوسکتا۔ مگر خدا جس کو چاہتا ہے پاک کردیتا ہے۔ اور خدا سننے والا (اور) جاننے والا ہے .
[24:21] O you who have believed, do not follow the footsteps of Satan. And whoever follows the footsteps of Satan - indeed, he enjoins immorality and wrongdoing. And if not for the favor of Allah upon you and His mercy, not one of you would have been pure, ever, but Allah purifies whom He wills, and Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
[Transliteration] Yaaa aiyuhal lazeena aamanoo laa tattabi'oo khutuwaatish Shaitaan, wa many-yattabi' khutuwaatish Shaitaani fa innahoo yaamuru bilfahshaaa'i walmunkar, wa law laa fadlul laahi 'alaikum wa rahmatuhoo maa zakaa minkum min ahadin abadanw wa laakinnal laaha yuzakkee many-yashaaa', wallaahu Samee'un 'Aleem
