سورة النمل

27. An-Naml


Total verses: 93
Revealed in: Mecca
Sajdah on verse: 26

- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)

The surah that speaks of the Valley of The Ants, through which the hosts of the prophet Solomon were once marching, wherein God miraculously enabled Solomon to hear one of them as she warned the other to flee into their homes before being crushed—a miracle of audition and understanding for which Solomon thanked God profusely. It takes its name from the story of Solomon and the ant (naml), mentioned in verse 18 ff. The surah both opens and closes by describing the Quran as joyful news for the believers and a warning for others. It gives stories of past prophets and the destruction of the communities that disbelieved in them. Illustrations are given of the nature of God’s power, contrasted with the total lack of power of the "partners" they worship beside Him, and descriptions are given of the Day of Judgement for those who deny it.

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

أَمَّنْ خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ وَأَنْزَلَ لَكُمْ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً فَأَنْبَتْنَا بِهِ حَدَائِقَ ذَاتَ بَهْجَةٍ مَا كَانَ لَكُمْ أَنْ تُنْبِتُوا شَجَرَهَا ۗ أَإِلَٰهٌ مَعَ اللَّهِ ۚ بَلْ هُمْ قَوْمٌ يَعْدِلُونَ ﴿٦٠﴾
٦٠ - بھلا کس نے آسمانوں اور زمین کو پیدا کیا اور (کس نے) تمہارے لئے آسمان سے پانی برسایا۔ (ہم نے) پھر ہم ہی نے اس سے سرسبز باغ اُگائے۔ تمہارا کام تو نہ تھا کہ تم اُن کے درختوں کو اگاتے۔ تو کیا خدا کے ساتھ کوئی اور بھی معبود ہے؟ (ہرگز نہیں) بلکہ یہ لوگ رستے سے الگ ہو رہے ہیں .
[27:60] [More precisely], is He [not best] who created the heavens and the earth and sent down for you rain from the sky, causing to grow thereby gardens of joyful beauty which you could not [otherwise] have grown the trees thereof? Is there a deity with Allah? [No], but they are a people who ascribe equals [to Him].
[Transliteration] Amman khalaqas samaawaati wal arda wa anzala lakum minas samaaa'i maaa'an fa ambatnaa bihee hadaaa'iqa zaata bahjjah, maa kanna lakum an tumbitoo shajarahaa, 'a-ilaahum ma'al laah, bal hum qawmuny ya'diloon
