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.

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

إِنَّ قَارُونَ كَانَ مِنْ قَوْمِ مُوسَىٰ فَبَغَىٰ عَلَيْهِمْ ۖ وَآتَيْنَاهُ مِنَ الْكُنُوزِ مَا إِنَّ مَفَاتِحَهُ لَتَنُوءُ بِالْعُصْبَةِ أُولِي الْقُوَّةِ إِذْ قَالَ لَهُ قَوْمُهُ لَا تَفْرَحْ ۖ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْفَرِحِينَ ﴿٧٦﴾
٧٦ - قارون موسٰی کی قوم میں سے تھا اور ان پر تعدّی کرتا تھا۔ اور ہم نے اس کو اتنے خزانے دیئے تھے کہ اُن کی کنجیاں ایک طاقتور جماعت کو اُٹھانی مشکل ہوتیں جب اس سے اس کی قوم نے کہا کہ اترائیے مت۔ کہ خدا اترانے والوں کو پسند نہیں کرتا .
[28:76] Indeed, Qarun was from the people of Moses, but he tyrannized them. And We gave him of treasures whose keys would burden a band of strong men; thereupon his people said to him, "Do not exult. Indeed, Allah does not like the exultant.
