سورة النمل

27. An-Naml

THE ANT


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

Translations:
- 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.

AN-NAML


أَمَّنْ جَعَلَ الْأَرْضَ قَرَارًا وَجَعَلَ خِلَالَهَا أَنْهَارًا وَجَعَلَ لَهَا رَوَاسِيَ وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَ الْبَحْرَيْنِ حَاجِزًا ۗ أَإِلَٰهٌ مَعَ اللَّهِ ۚ بَلْ أَكْثَرُهُمْ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ ﴿٦١﴾
٦١ - بھلا کس نے زمین کو قرار گاہ بنایا اور اس کے بیچ نہریں بنائیں اور اس کے لئے پہاڑ بنائے اور (کس نے) دو دریاؤں کے بیچ اوٹ بنائی (یہ سب کچھ خدا نے بنایا) تو کیا خدا کے ساتھ کوئی اور معبود بھی ہے؟ (ہرگز نہیں) بلکہ ان میں اکثر دانش نہیں رکھتے .
[27:61] Is He [not best] who made the earth a stable ground and placed within it rivers and made for it firmly set mountains and placed between the two seas a barrier? Is there a deity with Allah? [No], but most of them do not know.
[Transliteration] Ammann ja'alal arda qaraaranw wa ja'ala khilaalahaaa anhaaranw wa ja'ala lahaa rawaasiya wa ja'ala bainal bahraini haajizaa, 'a-ilaahumma'allah, bal aksaruhum la ya'lamoon
