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.

Tafsir (Bayanul Quran):
Detailed verse by verse explanation of Quran in Urdu by Late Dr. Israr Ahmad.

وَلَوْ أَنَّ لِلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا مَا فِي الْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا وَمِثْلَهُ مَعَهُ لَافْتَدَوْا بِهِ مِنْ سُوءِ الْعَذَابِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ ۚ وَبَدَا لَهُمْ مِنَ اللَّهِ مَا لَمْ يَكُونُوا يَحْتَسِبُونَ ﴿٤٧﴾
٤٧ - اور اگر ظالموں کے پاس وہ سب (مال ومتاع) ہو جو زمین میں ہے اور اس کے ساتھ اسی قدر اور ہو تو قیامت کے روز برے عذاب (سے مخلصی پانے) کے بدلے میں دے دیں۔ اور ان پر خدا کی طرف سے وہ امر ظاہر ہوجائے گا جس کا ان کو خیال بھی نہ تھا .
[39:47] And if those who did wrong had all that is in the earth entirely and the like of it with it, they would [attempt to] ransom themselves thereby from the worst of the punishment on the Day of Resurrection. And there will appear to them from Allah that which they had not taken into account.
[Transliteration] Wa law anna lillazeena zalamoo maa fil ardi jamee'anw wa mislahoo ma'ahoo laftadaw bihee min sooo'il azaabi Yawmal Qiyaamah, wa badaa lahum minal laahi maa lam yakkoonoo yahtasiboon
