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


ثُمَّ قَفَّيْنَا عَلَىٰ آثَارِهِمْ بِرُسُلِنَا وَقَفَّيْنَا بِعِيسَى ابْنِ مَرْيَمَ وَآتَيْنَاهُ الْإِنْجِيلَ وَجَعَلْنَا فِي قُلُوبِ الَّذِينَ اتَّبَعُوهُ رَأْفَةً وَرَحْمَةً وَرَهْبَانِيَّةً ابْتَدَعُوهَا مَا كَتَبْنَاهَا عَلَيْهِمْ إِلَّا ابْتِغَاءَ رِضْوَانِ اللَّهِ فَمَا رَعَوْهَا حَقَّ رِعَايَتِهَا ۖ فَآتَيْنَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنْهُمْ أَجْرَهُمْ ۖ وَكَثِيرٌ مِنْهُمْ فَاسِقُونَ ﴿٢٧﴾
٢٧ - پھر ان کے پیچھے انہی کے قدموں پر (اور) پیغمبر بھیجے اور ان کے پیچھے مریمؑ کے بیٹے عیسیٰ کو بھیجا اور ان کو انجیل عنایت کی۔ اور جن لوگوں نے ان کی پیروی کی ان کے دلوں میں شفقت اور مہربانی ڈال دی۔ اور لذات سے کنارہ کشی کی تو انہوں نے خود ایک نئی بات نکال لی ہم نے ان کو اس کا حکم نہیں دیا تھا مگر (انہوں نے اپنے خیال میں) خدا کی خوشنودی حاصل کرنے کے لئے (آپ ہی ایسا کرلیا تھا) پھر جیسا اس کو نباہنا چاہیئے تھا نباہ بھی نہ سکے۔ پس جو لوگ ان میں سے ایمان لائے ان کو ہم نے ان کا اجر دیا اور ان میں بہت سے نافرمان ہیں .
[57:27] Then We sent following their footsteps Our messengers and followed [them] with Jesus, the son of Mary, and gave him the Gospel. And We placed in the hearts of those who followed him compassion and mercy and monasticism, which they innovated; We did not prescribe it for them except [that they did so] seeking the approval of Allah. But they did not observe it with due observance. So We gave the ones who believed among them their reward, but many of them are defiantly disobedient.
