سورة الزخرف

43. Az-Zukhruf

Ornaments of Gold

Total verses: 89
Revealed in: Mecca

- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)

The surah that mentions the Ornaments of solid gold, and other precious commodities and appointments, which God would have granted in this life to all the unbelievers—had it not been that this would have driven humankind to unite in godlessness—for the trinkets of life are the true hearts' desire of the ungodly. Yet fleeting are all the things of this world, and far finer and everlasting the joy of Paradise for the believers; and that is their true hearts' desire. It takes its name from the word "ornaments" (zukhruf) in verse 35, and verse 53 alluded to again in : in both instances God is refuting the claim of the disbelievers that a true prophet would be rich. The fact that the angels are not God’s daughters but His obedient servants is emphasized again and again (verse 15 ff. and verse 60). Similarly, the idea that Jesus could be the son of God is clearly denied ( verse 57ff.).
The surah is also known as: Golden Ornaments, Luxury, Ornaments of Gold, The Gold Adornments, The Gold Ornaments.

وَلَوْلَا أَنْ يَكُونَ النَّاسُ أُمَّةً وَاحِدَةً لَجَعَلْنَا لِمَنْ يَكْفُرُ بِالرَّحْمَٰنِ لِبُيُوتِهِمْ سُقُفًا مِنْ فِضَّةٍ وَمَعَارِجَ عَلَيْهَا يَظْهَرُونَ ﴿٣٣﴾
٣٣ - اور اگر یہ خیال نہ ہوتا کہ سب لوگ ایک ہی جماعت ہوجائیں گے تو جو لوگ خدا سے انکار کرتے ہیں ہم ان کے گھروں کی چھتیں چاندی کی بنا دیتے اور سیڑھیاں (بھی) جن پر وہ چڑھتے ہیں .
[43:33] And if it were not that the people would become one community [of disbelievers], We would have made for those who disbelieve in the Most Merciful - for their houses - ceilings and stairways of silver upon which to mount
[Transliteration] Wa law laaa any yakoonan naasu ummatanw waahidatal laja'alnaa limany yakfuru bir Rahmaani libu yootihim suqufam min fiddatinw wa ma'aarija 'alaihaa yazharoon
