The surah proclaiming the Quran that God bestowed upon Muhammad to be, in its finality and totality, The Criterion of everlasting salvation for all humankind until the end of time. It takes its name from verse 1, which refers to the Quran as "al-Furqān" (lit. "the Distinguisher", "the Separator" or "the Differentiator", i.e. a criterion for distinguishing between truth and falsehood). The surah starts with a denunciation of polytheism, then deals with the disbelievers' arguments against the Prophet, the Quran, and the Day of Judgement. It warns them of their fate, citing examples of earlier peoples. The surah describes the power and grace of God, and ends with the qualities of true believers in verse 63 ff.
The surah is also known as: Discrimination, Salvation, The Differentiator, The Standard.

AL-FURQAN


أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ كَيْفَ مَدَّ الظِّلَّ وَلَوْ شَاءَ لَجَعَلَهُ سَاكِنًا ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَا الشَّمْسَ عَلَيْهِ دَلِيلًا ﴿٤٥﴾
٤٥ - بلکہ تم نے اپنے پروردگار (کی قدرت) کو نہیں دیکھا کہ وہ سائے کو کس طرح دراز کر (کے پھیلا) دیتا ہے۔ اور اگر وہ چاہتا تو اس کو (بےحرکت) ٹھیرا رکھتا پھر سورج کو اس کا رہنما بنا دیتا ہے .
[25:45] Have you not considered your Lord - how He extends the shadow, and if He willed, He could have made it stationary? Then We made the sun for it an indication.
[Transliteration] Alam tara ilaa Rabbika kaifa maddaz zilla wa law shaaa'a laja'alahoo saakinan summa ja'alnash shamsa 'alaihe daleelaa
