سورة الأحقاف

46. Al-Ahqaf

The wind-curved sandhills


Total verses: 35
Revealed in: Mecca

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


The surah that mentions the fatal lesion of the ancient people of ʿĀd who dwelled in the dune valley of Aḥqāf, whose prophet warned them to give up idolatry and worship only God, but to no avail. It takes its name from verse 21, where Aḥqāf is mentioned. It reflects one of the major themes of this surah: the inescapable punishment that awaits those who deny the truth and the Resurrection. Emphasis is placed on the fact that communities more established than the Meccans have been destroyed, and that even the jinn believe in the Quran before the disbelievers of Mecca do. Finally, the Prophet is encouraged to be steadfast and await God’s judgement on the disbelievers.
The surah is also known as The Dune Valleys of al-Ahqaf, The Dunes, The Sand Dunes, The Sandy Plains, Winding Sand-tracts

AL-AHQAAF


وَمِنْ قَبْلِهِ كِتَابُ مُوسَىٰ إِمَامًا وَرَحْمَةً ۚ وَهَٰذَا كِتَابٌ مُصَدِّقٌ لِسَانًا عَرَبِيًّا لِيُنْذِرَ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا وَبُشْرَىٰ لِلْمُحْسِنِينَ ﴿١٢﴾
١٢ - اور اس سے پہلے موسیٰ کی کتاب تھی (لوگوں کے لئے) رہنما اور رحمت۔ اور یہ کتاب عربی زبان میں ہے اسی کی تصدیق کرنے والی تاکہ ظالموں کو ڈرائے۔ اور نیکوکاروں کو خوشخبری سنائے .
[46:12] And before it was the scripture of Moses to lead and as a mercy. And this is a confirming Book in an Arabic tongue to warn those who have wronged and as good tidings to the doers of good.
