- 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

هُوَ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُمْ مِنْ نَفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ وَجَعَلَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا لِيَسْكُنَ إِلَيْهَا ۖ فَلَمَّا تَغَشَّاهَا حَمَلَتْ حَمْلًا خَفِيفًا فَمَرَّتْ بِهِ ۖ فَلَمَّا أَثْقَلَتْ دَعَوَا اللَّهَ رَبَّهُمَا لَئِنْ آتَيْتَنَا صَالِحًا لَنَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الشَّاكِرِينَ ﴿١٨٩﴾
١٨٩ - وہ خدا ہی تو ہے جس نے تم کو ایک شخص سے پیدا کیا اور اس سے اس کا جوڑا بنایا تاکہ اس سے راحت حاصل کرے۔ سو جب وہ اس کے پاس جاتا ہے تو اسے ہلکا سا حمل رہ جاتا ہے اور وہ اس کے ساتھ چلتی پھرتی ہے۔ پھر جب کچھ بوجھ معلوم کرتی یعنی بچہ پیٹ میں بڑا ہوتا ہے تو دونوں میاں بیوی اپنے پروردگار خدائے عزوجل سے التجا کرتے ہیں کہ اگر تو ہمیں صحیح وسالم (بچہ) دے گا تو ہم تیرے شکر گذار ہوں گے .
[7:189] It is He who created you from one soul and created from it its mate that he might dwell in security with her. And when he covers her, she carries a light burden and continues therein. And when it becomes heavy, they both invoke Allah, their Lord, "If You should give us a good [child], we will surely be among the grateful."
