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 يَهْدِيكُمْ فِي ظُلُمَاتِ الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ وَمَنْ يُرْسِلُ الرِّيَاحَ بُشْرًا بَيْنَ يَدَيْ رَحْمَتِهِ ۗ أَإِلَٰهٌ مَعَ اللَّهِ ۚ تَعَالَى اللَّهُ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ ﴿٦٣﴾
٦٣ - بھلا کون تم کو جنگل اور دریا کے اندھیروں میں رستہ بناتا ہے اور (کون) ہواؤں کو اپنی رحمت کے آگے خوشخبری بناکر بھیجتا ہے (یہ سب کچھ خدا کرتا ہے) تو کیا خدا کے ساتھ کوئی اور معبود بھی ہے؟ (ہرگز نہیں)۔ یہ لوگ جو شرک کرتے ہیں خدا (کی شان) اس سے بلند ہے .
[27:63] Is He [not best] who guides you through the darknesses of the land and sea and who sends the winds as good tidings before His mercy? Is there a deity with Allah? High is Allah above whatever they associate with Him.
[Transliteration] Ammany-yahdeekum fee zulumaatil barri wal bahri wa many yursilu riyaaha bushram baina yadai rahmatih, 'a-ilaahum ma'al laah, Ta'aalal laahu 'ammaa yushrikoon
