The surah that mentions mutual Consultation among the believers as the godly means by which to conduct their affairs and as a virtuous sign that they will gain the reward of God in the Hereafter. It takes its name from verse 38 concerning "counsel" (shūrā). The surah discusses man’s habit of creating division and disharmony in matters of religion, and God’s all-prevailing power, wisdom, and final decision. The unity of religion is stressed (verse 13) as is the continuity of the prophets (verse 3). The Prophet is reminded that he cannot compel people to believe, that they will be judged according to their deeds, and that he is only there to deliver the message. The nature of revelation is described in verse 51 ff.
The surah is also known as The Counsel

AS-SHURA


لِلَّهِ مُلْكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۚ يَخْلُقُ مَا يَشَاءُ ۚ يَهَبُ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ إِنَاثًا وَيَهَبُ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ الذُّكُورَ ﴿٤٩﴾
٤٩ - (تمام) بادشاہت خدا ہی کی ہے آسمانوں کی بھی اور زمین کی بھی۔ وہ جو چاہتا ہے پیدا کرتا ہے۔ جسے چاہتا ہے بیٹیاں عطا کرتا ہے اور جسے چاہتا ہے بیٹے بخشتا ہے .
[42:49] To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth; He creates what he wills. He gives to whom He wills female [children], and He gives to whom He wills males.
[Transliteration] Lillaahi mulkus samaawaati wal ard, yakhluqu maa yashaaa', yahabu limai yashaaa'u inaasanw wa yahabu limai yashaaa'uz zukoor
