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.

Tafsir (Bayanul Quran):
Detailed verse by verse explanation of Quran in Urdu by Late Dr. Israr Ahmad.

أَلَمْ يَأْنِ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَنْ تَخْشَعَ قُلُوبُهُمْ لِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ وَمَا نَزَلَ مِنَ الْحَقِّ وَلَا يَكُونُوا كَالَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ مِنْ قَبْلُ فَطَالَ عَلَيْهِمُ الْأَمَدُ فَقَسَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ ۖ وَكَثِيرٌ مِنْهُمْ فَاسِقُونَ ﴿١٦﴾
١٦ - کیا ابھی تک مومنوں کے لئے اس کا وقت نہیں آیا کہ خدا کی یاد کرنے کے وقت اور (قرآن) جو (خدائے) برحق (کی طرف) سے نازل ہوا ہے اس کے سننے کے وقت ان کے دل نرم ہوجائیں اور وہ ان لوگوں کی طرف نہ ہوجائیں جن کو (ان سے) پہلے کتابیں دی گئی تھیں۔ پھر ان پر زمان طویل گزر گیا تو ان کے دل سخت ہوگئے۔ اور ان میں سے اکثر نافرمان ہیں .
[57:16] Has the time not come for those who have believed that their hearts should become humbly submissive at the remembrance of Allah and what has come down of the truth? And let them not be like those who were given the Scripture before, and a long period passed over them, so their hearts hardened; and many of them are defiantly disobedient.
