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

لَا تَجْعَلُوا دُعَاءَ الرَّسُولِ بَيْنَكُمْ كَدُعَاءِ بَعْضِكُمْ بَعْضًا ۚ قَدْ يَعْلَمُ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ يَتَسَلَّلُونَ مِنْكُمْ لِوَاذًا ۚ فَلْيَحْذَرِ الَّذِينَ يُخَالِفُونَ عَنْ أَمْرِهِ أَنْ تُصِيبَهُمْ فِتْنَةٌ أَوْ يُصِيبَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ ﴿٦٣﴾
٦٣ - مومنو پیغمبر کے بلانے کو ایسا خیال نہ کرنا جیسا تم آپس میں ایک دوسرے کو بلاتے ہو۔ بےشک خدا کو یہ لوگ معلوم ہیں جو تم میں سے آنکھ بچا کر چل دیتے ہیں تو جو لوگ ان کے حکم کی مخالفت کرتے ہیں ان کو ڈرنا چاہیئے کہ (ایسا نہ ہو کہ) ان پر کوئی آفت پڑ جائے یا تکلیف دینے والا عذاب نازل ہو .
[24:63] Do not make [your] calling of the Messenger among yourselves as the call of one of you to another. Already Allah knows those of you who slip away, concealed by others. So let those beware who dissent from the Prophet's order, lest fitnah strike them or a painful punishment.
