سورة القصص

28. Al-Qasas

The Story

Total verses: 88
Revealed in: Mecca

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

The surah that mentions how Moses came to the wells of Midian and related to the aged believer, whose daughters he had helped, the series of events and The Story of his flight from Egypt; and that mentions, as well, the stories of Moses’ call to prophethood and confrontation with Pharaoh, his Exodus with the Children of Israel, and that of Korah of Israel, whom God destroyed. It takes its name from verse 25 wherein the word "story" (qaṣaṣ) occurs. Its main theme is the bad end that comes to those who are arrogant and spread corruption—polytheism is denounced at various points throughout the surah—and a link is made between these and the disbelievers of Mecca. The Prophet is reminded that he cannot make everyone believe (verse 56) and should remain steadfast (verse 87).
The surah is also known as: The History, The Narration, The Stories.

وَدَخَلَ الْمَدِينَةَ عَلَىٰ حِينِ غَفْلَةٍ مِنْ أَهْلِهَا فَوَجَدَ فِيهَا رَجُلَيْنِ يَقْتَتِلَانِ هَٰذَا مِنْ شِيعَتِهِ وَهَٰذَا مِنْ عَدُوِّهِ ۖ فَاسْتَغَاثَهُ الَّذِي مِنْ شِيعَتِهِ عَلَى الَّذِي مِنْ عَدُوِّهِ فَوَكَزَهُ مُوسَىٰ فَقَضَىٰ عَلَيْهِ ۖ قَالَ هَٰذَا مِنْ عَمَلِ الشَّيْطَانِ ۖ إِنَّهُ عَدُوٌّ مُضِلٌّ مُبِينٌ ﴿١٥﴾
١٥ - اور وہ ایسے وقت شہر میں داخل ہوئے کہ وہاں کے باشندے بےخبر ہو رہے تھے تو دیکھا کہ وہاں دو شخص لڑ رہے تھے ایک تو موسٰی کی قوم کا ہے اور دوسرا اُن کے دشمنوں میں سے تو جو شخص اُن کی قوم میں سے تھا اس نے دوسرے شخص کے مقابلے میں جو موسٰی کے دشمنوں میں سے تھا مدد طلب کی تو اُنہوں نے اس کو مکا مارا اور اس کا کام تمام کر دیا کہنے لگے کہ یہ کام تو (اغوائے) شیطان سے ہوا بیشک وہ (انسان کا) دشمن اور صریح بہکانے والا ہے .
[28:15] And he entered the city at a time of inattention by its people and found therein two men fighting: one from his faction and one from among his enemy. And the one from his faction called for help to him against the one from his enemy, so Moses struck him and [unintentionally] killed him. [Moses] said, "This is from the work of Satan. Indeed, he is a manifest, misleading enemy."
