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

قُلْ لَا أَمْلِكُ لِنَفْسِي نَفْعًا وَلَا ضَرًّا إِلَّا مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ ۚ وَلَوْ كُنْتُ أَعْلَمُ الْغَيْبَ لَاسْتَكْثَرْتُ مِنَ الْخَيْرِ وَمَا مَسَّنِيَ السُّوءُ ۚ إِنْ أَنَا إِلَّا نَذِيرٌ وَبَشِيرٌ لِقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ ﴿١٨٨﴾
١٨٨ - کہہ دو کہ میں اپنے فائدے اور نقصان کا کچھ بھی اختیار نہیں رکھتا مگر جو اللہ چاہے اور اگر میں غیب کی باتیں جانتا ہوتا تو بہت سے فائدے جمع کرلیتا اور مجھ کو کوئی تکلیف نہ پہنچتی۔ میں تو مومنوں کو ڈر اور خوشخبری سنانے والا ہوں .
[7:188] Say, "I hold not for myself [the power of] benefit or harm, except what Allah has willed. And if I knew the unseen, I could have acquired much wealth, and no harm would have touched me. I am not except a warner and a bringer of good tidings to a people who believe."
[Transliteration] Qul laaa amliku linafsee naf'anw wa laa darran illaa maa shaaa'al laah, wa law kuntu a'alamul ghaiba lastaksartu minal khairi wa maa massaniyas soo', in ana illaa nazeerunw wa basheerul liqawminy yu'minoon
