- 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

وَقَطَّعْنَاهُمُ اثْنَتَيْ عَشْرَةَ أَسْبَاطًا أُمَمًا ۚ وَأَوْحَيْنَا إِلَىٰ مُوسَىٰ إِذِ اسْتَسْقَاهُ قَوْمُهُ أَنِ اضْرِبْ بِعَصَاكَ الْحَجَرَ ۖ فَانْبَجَسَتْ مِنْهُ اثْنَتَا عَشْرَةَ عَيْنًا ۖ قَدْ عَلِمَ كُلُّ أُنَاسٍ مَشْرَبَهُمْ ۚ وَظَلَّلْنَا عَلَيْهِمُ الْغَمَامَ وَأَنْزَلْنَا عَلَيْهِمُ الْمَنَّ وَالسَّلْوَىٰ ۖ كُلُوا مِنْ طَيِّبَاتِ مَا رَزَقْنَاكُمْ ۚ وَمَا ظَلَمُونَا وَلَٰكِنْ كَانُوا أَنْفُسَهُمْ يَظْلِمُونَ ﴿١٦٠﴾
١٦٠ - اور ہم نے ان کو (یعنی بنی اسرائیل کو) الگ الگ کرکے بارہ قبیلے (اور) بڑی بڑی جماعتیں بنا دیا۔ اور جب موسیٰ سے ان کی قوم نے پانی طلب کیا تو ہم نے ان کی طرف وحی بھیجی کہ اپنی لاٹھی پتھر پر مار دو۔ تو اس میں سے بارہ چشمے پھوٹ نکلے۔ اور سب لوگوں نے اپنا اپنا گھاٹ معلوم کرلیا۔ اور ہم نے ان (کے سروں) پر بادل کو سائبان بنائے رکھا اور ان پر من وسلویٰ اتارتے رہے۔ اور (ان سے کہا کہ) جو پاکیزہ چیزیں ہم تمہیں دیتے ہیں انہیں کھاؤ۔ اور ان لوگوں نے ہمارا کچھ نقصان نہیں کیا بلکہ (جو) نقصان کیا اپنا ہی کیا .
[7:160] And We divided them into twelve descendant tribes [as distinct] nations. And We inspired to Moses when his people implored him for water, "Strike with your staff the stone," and there gushed forth from it twelve springs. Every people knew its watering place. And We shaded them with clouds and sent down upon them manna and quails, [saying], "Eat from the good things with which We have provided you." And they wronged Us not, but they were [only] wronging themselves.
