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.

أَمَّنْ هُوَ قَانِتٌ آنَاءَ اللَّيْلِ سَاجِدًا وَقَائِمًا يَحْذَرُ الْآخِرَةَ وَيَرْجُو رَحْمَةَ رَبِّهِ ۗ قُلْ هَلْ يَسْتَوِي الَّذِينَ يَعْلَمُونَ وَالَّذِينَ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ ۗ إِنَّمَا يَتَذَكَّرُ أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ ﴿٩﴾
٩ - (بھلا مشرک اچھا ہے) یا وہ جو رات کے وقتوں میں زمین پر پیشانی رکھ کر اور کھڑے ہو کر عبادت کرتا اور آخرت سے ڈرتا اور اپنے پروردگار کی رحمت کی امید رکھتا ہے۔ کہو بھلا جو لوگ علم رکھتے ہیں اور جو نہیں رکھتے دونوں برابر ہوسکتے ہیں؟ (اور) نصیحت تو وہی پکڑتے ہیں جو عقلمند ہیں .
[39:9] Is one who is devoutly obedient during periods of the night, prostrating and standing [in prayer], fearing the Hereafter and hoping for the mercy of his Lord, [like one who does not]? Say, "Are those who know equal to those who do not know?" Only they will remember [who are] people of understanding.
[Transliteration] Amman huwa qaanitun aanaaa'al laili saajidanw wa qaaa'imai yahzarul Aakhirata wa yarjoo rahmata Rabbih, qul hal yastawil lazeena ya'lamoona wallazeena laa ya'lamoon, innamaa yatazakkaru ulul albaab
