- 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

وَلَمَّا رَجَعَ مُوسَىٰ إِلَىٰ قَوْمِهِ غَضْبَانَ أَسِفًا قَالَ بِئْسَمَا خَلَفْتُمُونِي مِنْ بَعْدِي ۖ أَعَجِلْتُمْ أَمْرَ رَبِّكُمْ ۖ وَأَلْقَى الْأَلْوَاحَ وَأَخَذَ بِرَأْسِ أَخِيهِ يَجُرُّهُ إِلَيْهِ ۚ قَالَ ابْنَ أُمَّ إِنَّ الْقَوْمَ اسْتَضْعَفُونِي وَكَادُوا يَقْتُلُونَنِي فَلَا تُشْمِتْ بِيَ الْأَعْدَاءَ وَلَا تَجْعَلْنِي مَعَ الْقَوْمِ الظَّالِمِينَ ﴿١٥٠﴾
١٥٠ - اور جب موسیٰ اپنی قوم میں نہایت غصے اور افسوس کی حالت میں واپس آئے۔ تو کہنے لگے کہ تم نے میرے بعد بہت ہی بداطواری کی۔ کیا تم نے اپنے پروردگار کا حکم (یعنی میرا اپنے پاس آنا) جلد چاہا (یہ کہا) اور (شدت غضب سے تورات کی) تختیاں ڈال دیں اور اپنے بھائی کے سر (کے بالوں) کو پکڑ کر اپنی طرف کھینچنے لگے۔ انہوں نے کہا کہ بھائی جان لوگ تو مجھے کمزور سمجھتے تھے اور قریب تھا کہ قتل کردیں۔ تو ایسا کام نہ کیجیے کہ دشمن مجھ پر ہنسیں اور مجھے ظالم لوگوں میں مت ملایئے .
[7:150] And when Moses returned to his people, angry and grieved, he said, "How wretched is that by which you have replaced me after [my departure]. Were you impatient over the matter of your Lord?" And he threw down the tablets and seized his brother by [the hair of] his head, pulling him toward him. [Aaron] said, "O son of my mother, indeed the people oppressed me and were about to kill me, so let not the enemies rejoice over me and do not place me among the wrongdoing people."
