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.

وَهُوَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ بِالْحَقِّ ۖ وَيَوْمَ يَقُولُ كُنْ فَيَكُونُ ۚ قَوْلُهُ الْحَقُّ ۚ وَلَهُ الْمُلْكُ يَوْمَ يُنْفَخُ فِي الصُّورِ ۚ عَالِمُ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ ۚ وَهُوَ الْحَكِيمُ الْخَبِيرُ ﴿٧٣﴾
٧٣ - اور وہی تو ہے جس نے آسمانوں اور زمین کو تدبیر سے پیدا کیا ہے۔ اور جس دن وہ فرمائے گا کہ ہو جا تو (حشر برپا) ہوجائے گا ۔ اس کا ارشاد برحق ہے۔ اور جس دن صور پھونکا جائے گا (اس دن) اسی کی بادشاہت ہوگی۔ وہی پوشیدہ اور ظاہر (سب) کا جاننے والا ہے اور وہی دانا اور خبردار ہے .
[6:73] And it is He who created the heavens and earth in truth. And the day He says, "Be," and it is, His word is the truth. And His is the dominion [on] the Day the Horn is blown. [He is] Knower of the unseen and the witnessed; and He is the Wise, the Acquainted.
