سورة الأعراف

7. Al-Araf

The heights

Total verses: 206
Revealed in: Mecca
Sajdah on verse: 206

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

The surah that depicts the final separation of the believers and unbelievers on the Day of Judgment by an unscalable edifice called The Elevations that veils them from one another; but upon it stand men and women who can see both the people destined for Paradise and those fated for Hell, while their own harrowing verdict remains as yet undeclared by God. It is named after "the Elevations" (al-Aʿrāf) mentioned in verse 46 ff. The surah begins by addressing the Prophet Muḥammad, reassuring him about his revelations, and closes emphasizing the fact that he merely repeats what is revealed to him. It warns the disbelievers of their fate via numerous stories of disobedient communities of the past, in the hope that they may take heed and repent before it is too late. Both subjects also serve to give encouragement to the Prophet and the believers.
The surah is also known as The Battlements, The Faculty of Discernment, The Heights, The Ramparts, Wall Between Heaven and Hell

فَأَرْسَلْنَا عَلَيْهِمُ الطُّوفَانَ وَالْجَرَادَ وَالْقُمَّلَ وَالضَّفَادِعَ وَالدَّمَ آيَاتٍ مُفَصَّلَاتٍ فَاسْتَكْبَرُوا وَكَانُوا قَوْمًا مُجْرِمِينَ ﴿١٣٣﴾
١٣٣ - تو ہم نے ان پر طوفان اور ٹڈیاں اور جوئیں اور مینڈک اور خون کتنی کھلی ہوئی نشانیاں بھیجیں۔ مگر وہ تکبر ہی کرتے رہے اور وہ لوگ تھے ہی گنہگار .
[7:133] So We sent upon them the flood and locusts and lice and frogs and blood as distinct signs, but they were arrogant and were a criminal people.

وَلَمَّا وَقَعَ عَلَيْهِمُ الرِّجْزُ قَالُوا يَا مُوسَى ادْعُ لَنَا رَبَّكَ بِمَا عَهِدَ عِنْدَكَ ۖ لَئِنْ كَشَفْتَ عَنَّا الرِّجْزَ لَنُؤْمِنَنَّ لَكَ وَلَنُرْسِلَنَّ مَعَكَ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ ﴿١٣٤﴾
١٣٤ - اور جب ان پر عذاب واقع ہوتا تو کہتے کہ موسیٰ ہمارے لیے اپنے پروردگار سے دعا کرو۔ جیسا اس نے تم سے عہد کر رکھا ہے۔ اگر تم ہم سے عذاب کو ٹال دو گے تو ہم تم پر ایمان بھی لے آئیں گے اور بنی اسرائیل کو بھی تمہارے ساتھ جانے (کی اجازت) دیں گے .
[7:134] And when the punishment descended upon them, they said, "O Moses, invoke for us your Lord by what He has promised you. If you [can] remove the punishment from us, we will surely believe you, and we will send with you the Children of Israel."

فَلَمَّا كَشَفْنَا عَنْهُمُ الرِّجْزَ إِلَىٰ أَجَلٍ هُمْ بَالِغُوهُ إِذَا هُمْ يَنْكُثُونَ ﴿١٣٥﴾
١٣٥ - پھر جب ہم ایک مدت کے لیے جس تک ان کو پہنچنا تھا ان سے عذاب دور کردیتے تو وہ عہد کو توڑ ڈالتے .
[7:135] But when We removed the punishment from them until a term which they were to reach, then at once they broke their word.

فَانْتَقَمْنَا مِنْهُمْ فَأَغْرَقْنَاهُمْ فِي الْيَمِّ بِأَنَّهُمْ كَذَّبُوا بِآيَاتِنَا وَكَانُوا عَنْهَا غَافِلِينَ ﴿١٣٦﴾
١٣٦ - تو ہم نے ان سے بدلہ لے کر ہی چھوڑا کہ ان کو دریا میں ڈبو دیا اس لیے کہ وہ ہماری آیتوں کو جھٹلاتے اور ان سے بےپروائی کرتے تھے .
[7:136] So We took retribution from them, and We drowned them in the sea because they denied Our signs and were heedless of them.
