سورة الأنعام

6. Al-Anaam

The cattle


Total verses: 165
Revealed in: Mecca

Translations:
- 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.

وَإِذْ قَالَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ لِأَبِيهِ آزَرَ أَتَتَّخِذُ أَصْنَامًا آلِهَةً ۖ إِنِّي أَرَاكَ وَقَوْمَكَ فِي ضَلَالٍ مُبِينٍ ﴿٧٤﴾
٧٤ - اور (وہ وقت بھی یاد کرنے کے لائق ہے) جب ابراہیم نے اپنے باپ آزر سے کہا کہ تم بتوں کو کیا معبود بناتے ہو۔ میں دیکھتا ہوں کہ تم اور تمہاری قوم صریح گمراہی میں ہو .
[6:74] And [mention, O Muhammad], when Abraham said to his father Azar, "Do you take idols as deities? Indeed, I see you and your people to be in manifest error."
