سورة الجاثية

45. Al-Jathiya

Crouching


Total verses: 37
Revealed in: Mecca

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


The surah that mentions The Kneeling of every community around the brink of Hellfire on the Day of Doom in wait of its divine judgment. It takes its name from the word "kneeling" (jāthiyah) in verse 28. The surah addresses some of the arguments put forward by those sceptical of the truthfulness of the Quran. Emphasis is placed on the signs of God’s existence discernible in nature, and on the painful punishment that awaits the doubters on the Day of Judgement. The misguided arrogance of the disbelievers (verse 8 and verse 31) is contrasted with God’s true greatness (verse 37); references to God’s wisdom and majesty open and close the surah.
The surah is also known as: Bowing the Knee, Crouching, Hobbling, The Kneeling, The Kneeling Down.

AL-JATHIA


قُلِ اللَّهُ يُحْيِيكُمْ ثُمَّ يُمِيتُكُمْ ثُمَّ يَجْمَعُكُمْ إِلَىٰ يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ لَا رَيْبَ فِيهِ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ ﴿٢٦﴾
٢٦ - کہہ دو کہ خدا ہی تم کو جان بخشتا ہے پھر (وہی) تم کو موت دیتا ہے پھر تم کو قیامت کے روز جس (کے آنے) میں کچھ شک نہیں تم کو جمع کرے گا لیکن بہت سے لوگ نہیں جانتے .
[45:26] Say, "Allah causes you to live, then causes you to die; then He will assemble you for the Day of Resurrection, about which there is no doubt, but most of the people do not know."
[Transliteration] Qulil laahu yuhyeekum summa yumeetukum summa yajma'ukum ilaa Yawmil Qiyaamati laa raiba feehi wa laakinna aksaran naasi laa ya'lamoon
