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

هَلْ يَنْظُرُونَ إِلَّا تَأْوِيلَهُ ۚ يَوْمَ يَأْتِي تَأْوِيلُهُ يَقُولُ الَّذِينَ نَسُوهُ مِنْ قَبْلُ قَدْ جَاءَتْ رُسُلُ رَبِّنَا بِالْحَقِّ فَهَلْ لَنَا مِنْ شُفَعَاءَ فَيَشْفَعُوا لَنَا أَوْ نُرَدُّ فَنَعْمَلَ غَيْرَ الَّذِي كُنَّا نَعْمَلُ ۚ قَدْ خَسِرُوا أَنْفُسَهُمْ وَضَلَّ عَنْهُمْ مَا كَانُوا يَفْتَرُونَ ﴿٥٣﴾
٥٣ - کیا یہ لوگ اس کے وعدہٴ عذاب کے منتظر ہیں۔ جس دن وہ وعدہ آجائے گا تو جو لوگ اس کو پہلے سے بھولے ہوئے ہوں گے وہ بول اٹھیں گے کہ بےشک ہمارے پروردگار کے رسول حق لے کر آئے تھے۔ بھلا (آج) ہمارا کوئی سفارشی ہیں کہ ہماری سفارش کریں یا ہم (دنیا میں) پھر لوٹا دیئے جائیں کہ جو عمل (بد) ہم (پہلے) کرتے تھے (وہ نہ کریں بلکہ) ان کے سوا اور (نیک) عمل کریں۔ بےشک ان لوگوں نے اپنا نقصان کیا اور جو کچھ یہ افتراء کیا کرتے تھے ان سے سب جاتا رہا .
[7:53] Do they await except its result? The Day its result comes those who had ignored it before will say, "The messengers of our Lord had come with the truth, so are there [now] any intercessors to intercede for us or could we be sent back to do other than we used to do?" They will have lost themselves, and lost from them is what they used to invent.
