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.

إِنْ تَكْفُرُوا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ غَنِيٌّ عَنْكُمْ ۖ وَلَا يَرْضَىٰ لِعِبَادِهِ الْكُفْرَ ۖ وَإِنْ تَشْكُرُوا يَرْضَهُ لَكُمْ ۗ وَلَا تَزِرُ وَازِرَةٌ وِزْرَ أُخْرَىٰ ۗ ثُمَّ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكُمْ مَرْجِعُكُمْ فَيُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِمَا كُنْتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ ۚ إِنَّهُ عَلِيمٌ بِذَاتِ الصُّدُورِ ﴿٧﴾
٧ - اگر ناشکری کرو گے تو خدا تم سے بےپروا ہے۔ اور وہ اپنے بندوں کے لئے ناشکری پسند نہیں کرتا اور اگر شکر کرو گے تو وہ اس کو تمہارے لئے پسند کرے گا۔ اور کوئی اٹھانے والا دوسرے کا بوجھ نہیں اٹھائے گا۔ پھر تم اپنے پروردگار کی طرف لوٹنا ہے۔ پھر جو کچھ تم کرتے رہے وہ تم کو بتائے گا۔ وہ تو دلوں کی پوشیدہ باتوں تک سے آگاہ ہے .
[39:7] If you disbelieve - indeed, Allah is Free from need of you. And He does not approve for His servants disbelief. And if you are grateful, He approves it for you; and no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another. Then to your Lord is your return, and He will inform you about what you used to do. Indeed, He is Knowing of that within the breasts.
