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

وَلَيَحْمِلُنَّ أَثْقَالَهُمْ وَأَثْقَالًا مَعَ أَثْقَالِهِمْ ۖ وَلَيُسْأَلُنَّ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ عَمَّا كَانُوا يَفْتَرُونَ ﴿١٣﴾
١٣ - اور یہ اپنے بوجھ بھی اُٹھائیں گے اور اپنے بوجھوں کے ساتھ اور (لوگوں کے) بوجھ بھی۔ اور جو بہتان یہ باندھتے رہے قیامت کے دن اُن کی اُن سے ضرور پرسش ہوگی .
[29:13] But they will surely carry their [own] burdens and [other] burdens along with their burdens, and they will surely be questioned on the Day of Resurrection about what they used to invent.
[Transliteration] Wa la yahmilunna asqaa lahum wa asqaalam ma'a asqaalihim wa la yus'alunna Yawmal Qiyaamati 'ammaa kaanoo yaftaroon
