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


وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمُ اسْجُدُوا لِلرَّحْمَٰنِ قَالُوا وَمَا الرَّحْمَٰنُ أَنَسْجُدُ لِمَا تَأْمُرُنَا وَزَادَهُمْ نُفُورًا ۩ ﴿٦٠﴾
٦٠ - اور جب ان (کفار) سے کہا جاتا ہے کہ رحمٰن کو سجدہ کرو تو کہتے ہیں رحمٰن کیا؟ کیا جس کے لئے تم ہم سے کہتے ہو ہم اس کے آگے سجدہ کریں اور اس سے بدکتے ہیں .
[25:60] And when it is said to them, "Prostrate to the Most Merciful," they say, "And what is the Most Merciful? Should we prostrate to that which you order us?" And it increases them in aversion.
[Transliteration] Wa izaa qeela lahumus judoo lir Rahmaani qaaloo wa mar Rahmaanu anasjudu limaa taamurunaa wa zaadahum nufooraa
