سورة الأنعام

6. Al-Anaam

The cattle

Total verses: 165
Revealed in: Mecca

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

The surah that debunks as a mere forgery against the Law of God the forbidden practices of Pre-Islamic Arabia with regard to the sacrifice, distribution, and consumption of Cattle—and all such systems that arbitrarily impose upon people meaningless sacrifices, offerings, and prohibitions in the name of ungodly ideas and lifeless idols, which lead invariably to the impoverishment of women and the poor, and the institutionalization, thereby, of infanticide. It takes its name from "the cattle" (al-anʿām) mentioned in verse 136 ff. which deal with pagan superstitions and certain regulations related to cattle. The surah in its entirety makes plain that it is God who creates, controls, and sees everything, and that it is to Him that we turn in times of need. Thus it gives a lengthy refutation of the idolaters' claims.
The surah is also known as: The Livestock.

قُلْ إِنِّي عَلَىٰ بَيِّنَةٍ مِنْ رَبِّي وَكَذَّبْتُمْ بِهِ ۚ مَا عِنْدِي مَا تَسْتَعْجِلُونَ بِهِ ۚ إِنِ الْحُكْمُ إِلَّا لِلَّهِ ۖ يَقُصُّ الْحَقَّ ۖ وَهُوَ خَيْرُ الْفَاصِلِينَ ﴿٥٧﴾
٥٧ - کہہ دو کہ میں تو اپنے پروردگار کی دلیل روشن پر ہوں اور تم اس کی تکذیب کرتے ہو۔ جس چیز (یعنی عذاب) کے لئے تم جلدی کر رہے ہو وہ میرے پاس نہیں ہے (ایسا) حکم اللہ ہی کے اختیار میں ہے وہ سچی بات بیان فرماتا ہے اور وہ سب سے بہتر فیصلہ کرنے والا ہے .
[6:57] Say, "Indeed, I am on clear evidence from my Lord, and you have denied it. I do not have that for which you are impatient. The decision is only for Allah. He relates the truth, and He is the best of deciders."
[Transliteration] Qul innee 'alaa baiyinatim mir Rabbee wa kazzabtum bih, maa 'indee maa tasta'jiloona bih, inil hukmu illaa lillaahi yaqussul haqqa wa Huwa khairul faasileen

قُلْ لَوْ أَنَّ عِنْدِي مَا تَسْتَعْجِلُونَ بِهِ لَقُضِيَ الْأَمْرُ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَكُمْ ۗ وَاللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِالظَّالِمِينَ ﴿٥٨﴾
٥٨ - کہہ دو کہ جس چیز کے لئے تم جلدی کر رہے ہو اگر وہ میرے اختیار میں ہوتی تو مجھ میں اور تم میں فیصلہ ہوچکا ہوتا۔ اور خدا ظالموں سے خوب واقف ہے .
[6:58] Say, "If I had that for which you are impatient, the matter would have been decided between me and you, but Allah is most knowing of the wrongdoers."
[Transliteration] Qul law anna 'indee maa tasta'jiloona bihee laqudiyal amru bainee wa bainakum, wallaahu a'lamu bizzaalimeen
