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

اتْلُ مَا أُوحِيَ إِلَيْكَ مِنَ الْكِتَابِ وَأَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ ۖ إِنَّ الصَّلَاةَ تَنْهَىٰ عَنِ الْفَحْشَاءِ وَالْمُنْكَرِ ۗ وَلَذِكْرُ اللَّهِ أَكْبَرُ ۗ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ مَا تَصْنَعُونَ ﴿٤٥﴾
٤٥ - (اے محمدﷺ! یہ) کتاب جو تمہاری طرف وحی کی گئی ہے اس کو پڑھا کرو اور نماز کے پابند رہو۔ کچھ شک نہیں کہ نماز بےحیائی اور بری باتوں سے روکتی ہے۔ اور خدا کا ذکر بڑا (اچھا کام) ہے۔ اور جو کچھ تم کرتے ہو خدا اُسے جانتا ہے .
[29:45] Recite, [O Muhammad], what has been revealed to you of the Book and establish prayer. Indeed, prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing, and the remembrance of Allah is greater. And Allah knows that which you do.
