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


يَسْمَعُ آيَاتِ اللَّهِ تُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْهِ ثُمَّ يُصِرُّ مُسْتَكْبِرًا كَأَنْ لَمْ يَسْمَعْهَا ۖ فَبَشِّرْهُ بِعَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ ﴿٨﴾
٨ - (کہ) خدا کی آیتیں اس کو پڑھ کر سنائی جاتی ہیں تو ان کو سن تو لیتا ہے (مگر) پھر غرور سے ضد کرتا ہے کہ گویا ان کو سنا ہی نہیں۔ سو ایسے شخص کو دکھ دینے والے عذاب کی خوشخبری سنا دو .
[45:8] Who hears the verses of Allah recited to him, then persists arrogantly as if he had not heard them. So give him tidings of a painful punishment.
