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

وَوَصَّيْنَا الْإِنْسَانَ بِوَالِدَيْهِ حُسْنًا ۖ وَإِنْ جَاهَدَاكَ لِتُشْرِكَ بِي مَا لَيْسَ لَكَ بِهِ عِلْمٌ فَلَا تُطِعْهُمَا ۚ إِلَيَّ مَرْجِعُكُمْ فَأُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِمَا كُنْتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ ﴿٨﴾
٨ - اور ہم نے انسان کو اپنے ماں باپ کے ساتھ نیک سلوک کرنے کا حکم دیا ہے۔ ( اے مخاطب) اگر تیرے ماں باپ تیرے درپے ہوں کہ تو میرے ساتھ کسی کو شریک بنائے جس کی حقیقت کی تجھے واقفیت نہیں۔ تو ان کا کہنا نہ مانیو۔ تم( سب) کو میری طرف لوٹ کر آنا ہے۔ پھر جو کچھ تم کرتے تھے میں تم کو جتا دوں گا .
[29:8] And We have enjoined upon man goodness to parents. But if they endeavor to make you associate with Me that of which you have no knowledge, do not obey them. To Me is your return, and I will inform you about what you used to do.
