سورة الحديد

57. Al-Hadid

The Iron

Total verses: 29
Revealed in: Medina

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

The surah that mentions the heavy metallic element Iron as being sent down by God form the heavens to endow the earth itself with mighty force, and humanity with the many benefits of its malleable and structural strength, and all the great tests of faith that arise from this. It takes its name from verse 25, which mentions iron (ḥadīd). The surah urges the believers to spend in God’s cause and uphold justice. The all pervasiveness of God’s power, knowledge, control, and glory is affirmed to encourage the believers to right action, and the fate of the hypocrites is described. Previous prophets are mentioned (verse 26 ff.), especially Noah, Abraham, and Jesus, showing the response they received. The surah closes with a reference to the People of the Book.

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

يَوْمَ يَقُولُ الْمُنَافِقُونَ وَالْمُنَافِقَاتُ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا انْظُرُونَا نَقْتَبِسْ مِنْ نُورِكُمْ قِيلَ ارْجِعُوا وَرَاءَكُمْ فَالْتَمِسُوا نُورًا فَضُرِبَ بَيْنَهُمْ بِسُورٍ لَهُ بَابٌ بَاطِنُهُ فِيهِ الرَّحْمَةُ وَظَاهِرُهُ مِنْ قِبَلِهِ الْعَذَابُ ﴿١٣﴾
١٣ - اُس دن منافق مرد اور منافق عورتیں مومنوں سے کہیں گے کہ ہماری طرف سے (شفقت) کیجیئے کہ ہم بھی تمہارے نور سے روشنی حاصل کریں۔ تو ان سے کہا جائے گا کہ پیچھے کو لوٹ جاؤ اور (وہاں) نور تلاش کرو۔ پھر ان کے بیچ میں ایک دیوار کھڑی کر دی جائے گی۔ جس میں ایک دروازہ ہوگا جو اس کی جانب اندرونی ہے اس میں تو رحمت ہے اور جو جانب بیرونی ہے اس طرف عذاب (واذیت) .
[57:13] On the [same] Day the hypocrite men and hypocrite women will say to those who believed, "Wait for us that we may acquire some of your light." It will be said, "Go back behind you and seek light." And a wall will be placed between them with a door, its interior containing mercy, but on the outside of it is torment.
