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.

وَذَرِ الَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا دِينَهُمْ لَعِبًا وَلَهْوًا وَغَرَّتْهُمُ الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا ۚ وَذَكِّرْ بِهِ أَنْ تُبْسَلَ نَفْسٌ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ لَيْسَ لَهَا مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ وَلِيٌّ وَلَا شَفِيعٌ وَإِنْ تَعْدِلْ كُلَّ عَدْلٍ لَا يُؤْخَذْ مِنْهَا ۗ أُولَٰئِكَ الَّذِينَ أُبْسِلُوا بِمَا كَسَبُوا ۖ لَهُمْ شَرَابٌ مِنْ حَمِيمٍ وَعَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ بِمَا كَانُوا يَكْفُرُونَ ﴿٧٠﴾
٧٠ - اور جن لوگوں نے اپنےدین کو کھیل اور تماشا بنا رکھا ہے اور دنیا کی زندگی نے ان کو دھوکے میں ڈال رکھا ہے ان سے کچھ کام نہ رکھو ہاں اس (قرآن) کے ذریعے سے نصیحت کرتے رہو تاکہ (قیامت کے دن) کوئی اپنے اعمال کی سزا میں ہلاکت میں نہ ڈالا جائے (اس روز) خدا کےسوا نہ تو کوئی اس کا دوست ہوگا اور نہ سفارش کرنے والا۔ اور اگر وہ ہر چیز (جو روئے زمین پر ہے بطور) معاوضہ دینا چاہے تو وہ اس سے قبول نہ ہو یہی لوگ ہیں کہ اپنے اعمال کے وبال میں ہلاکت میں ڈالے گئے ان کے لئے پینے کو کھولتا ہوا پانی اور دکھ دینے والا عذاب ہے اس لئے کہ کفر کرتے تھے .
[6:70] And leave those who take their religion as amusement and diversion and whom the worldly life has deluded. But remind with the Qur'an, lest a soul be given up to destruction for what it earned; it will have other than Allah no protector and no intercessor. And if it should offer every compensation, it would not be taken from it. Those are the ones who are given to destruction for what they have earned. For them will be a drink of scalding water and a painful punishment because they used to disbelieve.
