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.

وَسِيقَ الَّذِينَ اتَّقَوْا رَبَّهُمْ إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ زُمَرًا ۖ حَتَّىٰ إِذَا جَاءُوهَا وَفُتِحَتْ أَبْوَابُهَا وَقَالَ لَهُمْ خَزَنَتُهَا سَلَامٌ عَلَيْكُمْ طِبْتُمْ فَادْخُلُوهَا خَالِدِينَ ﴿٧٣﴾
٧٣ - اور جو لوگ اپنے پروردگار سے ڈرتے ہیں ان کو گروہ گروہ بنا کر بہشت کی طرف لے جائیں گے یہاں تک کہ جب اس کے پاس پہنچ جائیں گے اور اس کے دروازے کھول دیئے جائیں گے تو اس کے داروغہ ان سے کہیں کہ تم پر سلام تم بہت اچھے رہے۔ اب اس میں ہمیشہ کے لئے داخل ہوجاؤ .
[39:73] But those who feared their Lord will be driven to Paradise in groups until, when they reach it while its gates have been opened and its keepers say, "Peace be upon you; you have become pure; so enter it to abide eternally therein," [they will enter].
