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

٣٧ - (یعنی ایسے) لوگ جن کو خدا کے ذکر اور نماز پڑھنے اور زکوٰة دینے سے نہ سوداگری غافل کرتی ہے نہ خرید وفروخت۔ وہ اس دن سے جب دل (خوف اور گھبراہٹ کے سبب) الٹ جائیں گے اور آنکھیں (اوپر کو چڑھ جائیں گی) ڈرتے ہیں .
[24:37] [Are] men whom neither commerce nor sale distracts from the remembrance of Allah and performance of prayer and giving of zakah. They fear a Day in which the hearts and eyes will [fearfully] turn about -
