AL-HUJURAAT


يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَرْفَعُوا أَصْوَاتَكُمْ فَوْقَ صَوْتِ النَّبِيِّ وَلَا تَجْهَرُوا لَهُ بِالْقَوْلِ كَجَهْرِ بَعْضِكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ أَنْ تَحْبَطَ أَعْمَالُكُمْ وَأَنْتُمْ لَا تَشْعُرُونَ ﴿٢﴾
٢ - اے اہل ایمان! اپنی آوازیں پیغمبر کی آواز سے اونچی نہ کرو اور جس طرح آپس میں ایک دوسرے سے زور سے بولتے ہو (اس طرح) ان کے روبرو زور سے نہ بولا کرو (ایسا نہ ہو) کہ تمہارے اعمال ضائع ہوجائیں اور تم کو خبر بھی نہ ہو .
[49:2] O you who have believed, do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet or be loud to him in speech like the loudness of some of you to others, lest your deeds become worthless while you perceive not.
[Transliteration] Yaa ayyuhal lazeena aamanoo laa tarfa'ooo aswaatakum fawqa sawtin Nabiyi wa laa tajharoo lahoo bilqawli kajahri ba'dikum liba 'din an tahbata a 'maalukum wa antum laa tash'uroon
