سورة الحديد

57. Al-Hadid

The Iron


Total verses: 29
Revealed in: Medina

Translations:
- 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.

AL-HADEED


لِكَيْلَا تَأْسَوْا عَلَىٰ مَا فَاتَكُمْ وَلَا تَفْرَحُوا بِمَا آتَاكُمْ ۗ وَاللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ كُلَّ مُخْتَالٍ فَخُورٍ ﴿٢٣﴾
٢٣ - تاکہ جو (مطلب) تم سے فوت ہوگیا ہو اس کا غم نہ کھایا کرو اور جو تم کو اس نے دیا ہو اس پر اترایا نہ کرو۔ اور خدا کسی اترانے اور شیخی بگھارنے والے کو دوست نہیں رکھتا .
[57:23] In order that you not despair over what has eluded you and not exult [in pride] over what He has given you. And Allah does not like everyone self-deluded and boastful -
[Transliteration] Likailaa taasaw 'alaa maa faatakum wa laa tafrahoo bimaaa aataakum, wallaahu laa yuhibbu kulla mukhtaalin fakhoor
