سورة الزمر

39. Az-Zumar

The Troops

Total verses: 75
Revealed in: Mecca

- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)

The surah that mentions The Throngs of the unbelievers who shall be driven to Hell in the Hereafter, and the companies of the God-fearing who shall be ushered to Paradise in honour. It takes its name from verse 75 and verse 73 in which the word "throngs" (zumar) occurs. The main focus of the surah is the contrast between those who follow the true faith, and those who ascribe partners to God. The surah emphasizes that people are free to choose whether to believe or disbelieve (verse 41), but urges them in the strongest possible terms to turn to the right path while there is still time to repent (verse 55 ff.).
The surah is also known as: The Companies, The Crowds, The Multitudes, The Small Groups.

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

أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ أَنْزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً فَسَلَكَهُ يَنَابِيعَ فِي الْأَرْضِ ثُمَّ يُخْرِجُ بِهِ زَرْعًا مُخْتَلِفًا أَلْوَانُهُ ثُمَّ يَهِيجُ فَتَرَاهُ مُصْفَرًّا ثُمَّ يَجْعَلُهُ حُطَامًا ۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَذِكْرَىٰ لِأُولِي الْأَلْبَابِ ﴿٢١﴾
٢١ - کیا تم نے نہیں دیکھا کہ خدا آسمان سے پانی نازل کرتا پھر اس کو زمین میں چشمے بنا کر جاری کرتا پھر اس سے کھیتی اُگاتا ہے جس کے طرح طرح کے رنگ ہوتے ہیں۔ پھر وہ خشک ہوجاتی ہے تو تم اس کو دیکھتے ہو (کہ) زرد (ہوگئی ہے) پھر اسے چورا چورا کر دیتا ہے۔ بےشک اس میں عقل والوں کے لئے نصیحت ہے .
[39:21] Do you not see that Allah sends down rain from the sky and makes it flow as springs [and rivers] in the earth; then He produces thereby crops of varying colors; then they dry and you see them turned yellow; then He makes them [scattered] debris. Indeed in that is a reminder for those of understanding.
