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


تَكَادُ السَّمَاوَاتُ يَتَفَطَّرْنَ مِنْ فَوْقِهِنَّ ۚ وَالْمَلَائِكَةُ يُسَبِّحُونَ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّهِمْ وَيَسْتَغْفِرُونَ لِمَنْ فِي الْأَرْضِ ۗ أَلَا إِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ ﴿٥﴾
٥ - قریب ہے کہ آسمان اوپر سے پھٹ پڑیں اور فرشتے اپنے پروردگار کی تعریف کے ساتھ اس کی تسبیج کرتے رہتے ہیں اور جو لوگ زمین میں ہیں ان کے لئے معافی مانگتے رہتے ہیں۔ سن رکھو کہ خدا بخشنے والا مہربان ہے .
[42:5] The heavens almost break from above them, and the angels exalt [Allah] with praise of their Lord and ask forgiveness for those on earth. Unquestionably, it is Allah who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.
[Transliteration] Takaadus samaawaatu yatafattarna min fawqihinn, walmalaaa'ikatu yusabbihoona bihamdi Rabbihim wa yastaghfiroona liman fil ard, alaaa innal laaha huwal Ghafoorur Raheem
