The heights

- 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

قَالَ ادْخُلُوا فِي أُمَمٍ قَدْ خَلَتْ مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ مِنَ الْجِنِّ وَالْإِنْسِ فِي النَّارِ ۖ كُلَّمَا دَخَلَتْ أُمَّةٌ لَعَنَتْ أُخْتَهَا ۖ حَتَّىٰ إِذَا ادَّارَكُوا فِيهَا جَمِيعًا قَالَتْ أُخْرَاهُمْ لِأُولَاهُمْ رَبَّنَا هَٰؤُلَاءِ أَضَلُّونَا فَآتِهِمْ عَذَابًا ضِعْفًا مِنَ النَّارِ ۖ قَالَ لِكُلٍّ ضِعْفٌ وَلَٰكِنْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ ﴿٣٨﴾
٣٨ - تو خدا فرمائے گا کہ جنّوں اور انسانوں کی جو جماعتیں تم سے پہلے ہو گزری ہیں ان کے ساتھ تم بھی داخل جہنم ہو جاؤ۔ جب ایک جماعت (وہاں) جا داخل ہو گئی تو اپنی (مذہبی) بہن (یعنی اپنے جیسی دوسری جماعت) پر لعنت کرے گی۔ یہاں تک کہ جب سب اس میں داخل ہو جائیں گے تو پچھلی جماعت پہلی کی نسبت کہے گی کہ اے پروردگار! ان ہی لوگوں نے ہم کو گمراہ کیا تھا تو ان کو آتش جہنم کا دگنا عذاب دے۔ خدا فرمائے گا کہ (تم) سب کو دگنا (عذاب دیا جائے گا) مگر تم نہیں جانتے .
[7:38] [Allah] will say, "Enter among nations which had passed on before you of jinn and mankind into the Fire." Every time a nation enters, it will curse its sister until, when they have all overtaken one another therein, the last of them will say about the first of them "Our Lord, these had misled us, so give them a double punishment of the Fire. He will say, "For each is double, but you do not know."
