سورة القصص

28. Al-Qasas

The Story


Total verses: 88
Revealed in: Mecca

Translations:
- 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.

AL-QASES


وَلَٰكِنَّا أَنْشَأْنَا قُرُونًا فَتَطَاوَلَ عَلَيْهِمُ الْعُمُرُ ۚ وَمَا كُنْتَ ثَاوِيًا فِي أَهْلِ مَدْيَنَ تَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِنَا وَلَٰكِنَّا كُنَّا مُرْسِلِينَ ﴿٤٥﴾
٤٥ - لیکن ہم نے (موسٰی کے بعد) کئی اُمتوں کو پیدا کیا پھر ان پر مدت طویل گذر گئی اور نہ تم مدین والوں میں رہنے والے تھے کہ ان کو ہماری آیتیں پڑھ پڑھ کر سناتے تھے۔ ہاں ہم ہی تو پیغمبر بھیجنے والے تھے .
[28:45] But We produced [many] generations [after Moses], and prolonged was their duration. And you were not a resident among the people of Madyan, reciting to them Our verses, but We were senders [of this message].
[Transliteration] Wa laakinnaa anshaanaa quroonan fatataawala 'alaihimul 'umur, wa maa kunta saawiyan feee ahli Madyana tatloo 'alaihim Aayaatinaa wa laakinnaa kunnaa mursileen
