Detailed verse by verse explanation of Quran in Urdu by Late Dr. Israr Ahmad.

وَإِنْ طَائِفَتَانِ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ اقْتَتَلُوا فَأَصْلِحُوا بَيْنَهُمَا ۖ فَإِنْ بَغَتْ إِحْدَاهُمَا عَلَى الْأُخْرَىٰ فَقَاتِلُوا الَّتِي تَبْغِي حَتَّىٰ تَفِيءَ إِلَىٰ أَمْرِ اللَّهِ ۚ فَإِنْ فَاءَتْ فَأَصْلِحُوا بَيْنَهُمَا بِالْعَدْلِ وَأَقْسِطُوا ۖ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُقْسِطِينَ ﴿٩﴾
٩ - اور اگر مومنوں میں سے کوئی دو فریق آپس میں لڑ پڑیں تو ان میں صلح کرا دو۔ اور اگر ایک فریق دوسرے پر زیادتی کرے تو زیادتی کرنے والے سے لڑو یہاں تک کہ وہ خدا کے حکم کی طرف رجوع لائے۔ پس جب وہ رجوع لائے تو وہ دونوں فریق میں مساوات کے ساتھ صلح کرا دو اور انصاف سے کام لو۔ کہ خدا انصاف کرنے والوں کو پسند کرتا ہے .
[49:9] And if two factions among the believers should fight, then make settlement between the two. But if one of them oppresses the other, then fight against the one that oppresses until it returns to the ordinance of Allah. And if it returns, then make settlement between them in justice and act justly. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly.
