Surah Yasin


بِسۡمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحۡمٰنِ الرَّحِیۡمِ یٰسٓ ۚ﴿۱﴾ وَ الۡقُرۡاٰنِ الۡحَکِیۡمِ ۙ﴿۲﴾ اِنَّکَ لَمِنَ الۡمُرۡسَلِیۡنَ ۙ﴿۳﴾ عَلٰی صِرَاطٍ مُّسۡتَقِیۡمٍ ؕ﴿۴﴾ تَنۡزِیۡلَ الۡعَزِیۡزِ الرَّحِیۡمِ ۙ﴿۵﴾ لِتُنۡذِرَ قَوۡمًا مَّاۤ اُنۡذِرَ اٰبَآؤُہُمۡ فَہُمۡ غٰفِلُوۡنَ ﴿۶﴾ لَقَدۡ حَقَّ الۡقَوۡلُ عَلٰۤی اَکۡثَرِہِمۡ فَہُمۡ لَا یُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ ﴿۷﴾ اِنَّا جَعَلۡنَا فِیۡۤ اَعۡنَاقِہِمۡ اَغۡلٰلًا فَہِیَ اِلَی الۡاَذۡقَانِ فَہُمۡ مُّقۡمَحُوۡنَ ﴿۸﴾ وَ جَعَلۡنَا مِنۡۢ بَیۡنِ اَیۡدِیۡہِمۡ سَدًّا وَّ مِنۡ خَلۡفِہِمۡ سَدًّا فَاَغۡشَیۡنٰہُمۡ فَہُمۡ لَا یُبۡصِرُوۡنَ ﴿۹﴾ وَ سَوَآءٌ عَلَیۡہِمۡ ءَاَنۡذَرۡتَہُمۡ اَمۡ لَمۡ تُنۡذِرۡہُمۡ لَا یُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ ﴿۱۰﴾ اِنَّمَا تُنۡذِرُ مَنِ اتَّبَعَ الذِّکۡرَ وَ خَشِیَ الرَّحۡمٰنَ بِالۡغَیۡبِ ۚ فَبَشِّرۡہُ بِمَغۡفِرَۃٍ وَّ اَجۡرٍ کَرِیۡمٍ ﴿۱۱﴾ اِنَّا نَحۡنُ نُحۡیِ الۡمَوۡتٰی وَ نَکۡتُبُ مَا قَدَّمُوۡا وَ اٰثَارَہُمۡ ؕؑ وَ کُلَّ شَیۡءٍ اَحۡصَیۡنٰہُ فِیۡۤ اِمَامٍ مُّبِیۡنٍ ﴿۱۲﴾ In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Ever Merciful. This is Surah Yasin.[1] This Qur'an replete with wisdom bears witness that you surely are among the messengers,[2] upon a very straight path.[3] It has been revealed with great diligence and planning from the Being Who is powerful, ever-merciful.[4] It is has been revealed so that you may warn those people whose predecessors had not been warned. Hence, they are inflicted with negligence.[5] For many of them, Our word has been fulfilled;[6] thus, they will not embrace faith. [So arrogant are they that] it is as if We have put yokes around their necks which have reached as far as their chins; so, their heads are forever in an elevated position.[7] We have raised a wall in front of them and another behind them as well. In this way, We have covered them; so, now they are not being able to see anything. It is equal for them whether you warn them or not; they will not believe. You can only warn those [O Prophet] who follow advice and fear the most merciful God even though they have not seen Him. So give glad tidings to such people of forgiveness and an honorable reward [from God]. Surely, [one day] it is We Who will raise the dead and [their accountability will not be of the slightest bother to Us because] whatever they have sent forward and whatever they have left behind We are writing down all of it and We have noted everything in a clear book.[8] (1-12) وَ اضۡرِبۡ لَہُمۡ مَّثَلًا اَصۡحٰبَ الۡقَرۡیَۃِ ۘ اِذۡ جَآءَہَا الۡمُرۡسَلُوۡنَ ﴿ۚ۱۳﴾ اِذۡ اَرۡسَلۡنَاۤ اِلَیۡہِمُ اثۡنَیۡنِ فَکَذَّبُوۡہُمَا فَعَزَّزۡنَا بِثَالِثٍ فَقَالُوۡۤا اِنَّاۤ اِلَیۡکُمۡ مُّرۡسَلُوۡنَ ﴿۱۴﴾ قَالُوۡا مَاۤ اَنۡتُمۡ اِلَّا بَشَرٌ مِّثۡلُنَا ۙ وَ مَاۤ اَنۡزَلَ الرَّحۡمٰنُ مِنۡ شَیۡءٍ ۙ اِنۡ اَنۡتُمۡ اِلَّا تَکۡذِبُوۡنَ ﴿۱۵﴾ Narrate to them the example of the city-dwellers[9] when messengers had come to them[10] [such that] when We sent two messengers to them,[11] they denied both. Then We helped them through a third individual;[12] so they said to the people: "Undoubtedly, We have been sent to you as messengers." [13] The people replied: "You are but a mortal like us and the merciful God has not revealed anything; you are merely lying." (13-15) قَالُوۡا رَبُّنَا یَعۡلَمُ اِنَّاۤ اِلَیۡکُمۡ لَمُرۡسَلُوۡنَ ﴿۱۶﴾ وَ مَا عَلَیۡنَاۤ اِلَّا الۡبَلٰغُ الۡمُبِیۡنُ ﴿۱۷﴾ قَالُوۡۤا اِنَّا تَطَیَّرۡنَا بِکُمۡ ۚ لَئِنۡ لَّمۡ تَنۡتَہُوۡا لَنَرۡجُمَنَّکُمۡ وَ لَیَمَسَّنَّکُمۡ مِّنَّا عَذَابٌ اَلِیۡمٌ ﴿۱۸﴾ قَالُوۡا طَآئِرُکُمۡ مَّعَکُمۡ ؕ اَئِنۡ ذُکِّرۡتُمۡ ؕ بَلۡ اَنۡتُمۡ قَوۡمٌ مُّسۡرِفُوۡنَ ﴿۱۹﴾ The messengers said: "Our Lord bears witness that We have surely been sent to you as messengers, and our only responsibility is to clearly communicate."[14] People said: "We regard you to bring bad luck.[15] If you people do not desist, We will stone you to death and you will definitely be painfully punished from us." The messengers replied: "Your bad luck is with you.[16] Is it merely because you have been sounded a reminder? No, in fact, you are people who exceed bounds." (16-19) وَ جَآءَ مِنۡ اَقۡصَا الۡمَدِیۡنَۃِ رَجُلٌ یَّسۡعٰی قَالَ یٰقَوۡمِ اتَّبِعُوا الۡمُرۡسَلِیۡنَ ﴿ۙ۲۰﴾ اتَّبِعُوۡا مَنۡ لَّا یَسۡـَٔلُکُمۡ اَجۡرًا وَّ ہُمۡ مُّہۡتَدُوۡنَ ﴿۲۱﴾ وَ مَا لِیَ لَاۤ اَعۡبُدُ الَّذِیۡ فَطَرَنِیۡ وَ اِلَیۡہِ تُرۡجَعُوۡنَ ﴿۲۲﴾ ءَاَتَّخِذُ مِنۡ دُوۡنِہٖۤ اٰلِہَۃً اِنۡ یُّرِدۡنِ الرَّحۡمٰنُ بِضُرٍّ لَّا تُغۡنِ عَنِّیۡ شَفَاعَتُہُمۡ شَیۡئًا وَّ لَا یُنۡقِذُوۡنِ ﴿ۚ۲۳﴾ اِنِّیۡۤ اِذًا لَّفِیۡ ضَلٰلٍ مُّبِیۡنٍ ﴿۲۴﴾ اِنِّیۡۤ اٰمَنۡتُ بِرَبِّکُمۡ فَاسۡمَعُوۡنِ ﴿ؕ۲۵﴾ قِیۡلَ ادۡخُلِ الۡجَنَّۃَ ؕ قَالَ یٰلَیۡتَ قَوۡمِیۡ یَعۡلَمُوۡنَ ﴿ۙ۲۶﴾ بِمَا غَفَرَ لِیۡ رَبِّیۡ وَ جَعَلَنِیۡ مِنَ الۡمُکۡرَمِیۡنَ ﴿۲۷﴾ [It was at this instance when God helped them through the third such that] a person came running from the far end of the city[17] [and after coming over] said: "People of my nation! Follow the messengers. Follow the people who do not demand any reward and are also rightly guided. [You want to turn me away also from guidance? But I ask you:] "Why should I not worship that Being Who has created me and all of you will be returned to Him? Should I set up other deities besides Him? If the merciful God wants to afflict some hardship on me, their intercession will be of no avail to me and neither will they be able to save me. If I do this, then undoubtedly I will fall into open error. I have professed faith in your Lord; so, you also listen to me." [18] – It was said: "Enter Paradise." [When he heard this glad tiding,] he said: "Would that my nation could have known my forgiveness from God and His including me among the honourable." [19] (20-27) وَ مَاۤ اَنۡزَلۡنَا عَلٰی قَوۡمِہٖ مِنۡۢ بَعۡدِہٖ مِنۡ جُنۡدٍ مِّنَ السَّمَآءِ وَ مَا کُنَّا مُنۡزِلِیۡنَ ﴿۲۸﴾ اِنۡ کَانَتۡ اِلَّا صَیۡحَۃً وَّاحِدَۃً فَاِذَا ہُمۡ خٰمِدُوۡنَ ﴿۲۹﴾ یٰحَسۡرَۃً عَلَی الۡعِبَادِ ۚؑ مَا یَاۡتِیۡہِمۡ مِّنۡ رَّسُوۡلٍ اِلَّا کَانُوۡا بِہٖ یَسۡتَہۡزِءُوۡنَ ﴿۳۰﴾ اَلَمۡ یَرَوۡا کَمۡ اَہۡلَکۡنَا قَبۡلَہُمۡ مِّنَ الۡقُرُوۡنِ اَنَّہُمۡ اِلَیۡہِمۡ لَا یَرۡجِعُوۡنَ ﴿ؕ۳۱﴾ وَ اِنۡ کُلٌّ لَّمَّا جَمِیۡعٌ لَّدَیۡنَا مُحۡضَرُوۡنَ ﴿۳۲﴾ After him,[20] We did not send down any army on his nation from the heavens and We are not One Who even send down [for such tasks]. It was only a shout and suddenly they were extinguished.[21] – What a pity on people. Whichever messenger came to them, they have only been making fun of him. [Your addressees too O Messenger are doing the same.] Have they not seen how many nations before them have We destroyed so that their people will now never return to them and there is no doubt that [one day] all of them will be gathered to Our presence.[22] (28-32) وَ اٰیَۃٌ لَّہُمُ الۡاَرۡضُ الۡمَیۡتَۃُ ۚۖ اَحۡیَیۡنٰہَا وَ اَخۡرَجۡنَا مِنۡہَا حَبًّا فَمِنۡہُ یَاۡکُلُوۡنَ ﴿۳۳﴾ وَ جَعَلۡنَا فِیۡہَا جَنّٰتٍ مِّنۡ نَّخِیۡلٍ وَّ اَعۡنَابٍ وَّ فَجَّرۡنَا فِیۡہَا مِنَ الۡعُیُوۡنِ ﴿ۙ۳۴﴾ لِیَاۡکُلُوۡا مِنۡ ثَمَرِہٖ ۙ وَ مَا عَمِلَتۡہُ اَیۡدِیۡہِمۡ ؕ اَفَلَا یَشۡکُرُوۡنَ﴿۳۵﴾ [They ask for signs.] In reality, the dead land is a very big sign for them. We enlivened it [by sending down water from the heavens] and from it produced grain so that they eat from it. And We planted orchards of dates and grapes in it and made fountains to flow in it so that they may eat its fruits[23] – These have not been made by their hands. Then do they not show gratitude? (33-35) سُبۡحٰنَ الَّذِیۡ خَلَقَ الۡاَزۡوَاجَ کُلَّہَا مِمَّا تُنۡۢبِتُ الۡاَرۡضُ وَ مِنۡ اَنۡفُسِہِمۡ وَ مِمَّا لَا یَعۡلَمُوۡنَ ﴿۳۶﴾ Glorious is the Being[24] Who made all the pairs, of things which the earth sprouts and from among these people themselves too and also of things which they do not know.[25] (36) وَ اٰیَۃٌ لَّہُمُ الَّیۡلُ ۚۖ نَسۡلَخُ مِنۡہُ النَّہَارَ فَاِذَا ہُمۡ مُّظۡلِمُوۡنَ ﴿ۙ۳۷﴾ وَ الشَّمۡسُ تَجۡرِیۡ لِمُسۡتَقَرٍّ لَّہَا ؕ ذٰلِکَ تَقۡدِیۡرُ الۡعَزِیۡزِ الۡعَلِیۡمِ ﴿ؕ۳۸﴾ وَ الۡقَمَرَ قَدَّرۡنٰہُ مَنَازِلَ حَتّٰی عَادَ کَالۡعُرۡجُوۡنِ الۡقَدِیۡمِ ﴿۳۹﴾ لَا الشَّمۡسُ یَنۡۢبَغِیۡ لَہَاۤ اَنۡ تُدۡرِکَ الۡقَمَرَ وَ لَا الَّیۡلُ سَابِقُ النَّہَارِ ؕ وَ کُلٌّ فِیۡ فَلَکٍ یَّسۡبَحُوۡنَ ﴿۴۰﴾ And for them, the night too is a great sign. We pull out the day from it; so all of a sudden they are plunged in darkness. [For precisely this purpose,] the sun moves on a prescribed path. This is a measure set by the powerful and all-knowing God. And We have appointed phases for the moon [for this purpose] until [after passing through them] it once again becomes a withered date-twig. Neither can the sun dare catch up with the moon nor can the night overtake the day. All of them are moving in their own path.[26] (37-40) وَ اٰیَۃٌ لَّہُمۡ اَنَّا حَمَلۡنَا ذُرِّیَّتَہُمۡ فِی الۡفُلۡکِ الۡمَشۡحُوۡنِ ﴿ۙ۴۱﴾ وَ خَلَقۡنَا لَہُمۡ مِّنۡ مِّثۡلِہٖ مَا یَرۡکَبُوۡنَ ﴿۴۲﴾ وَ اِنۡ نَّشَاۡ نُغۡرِقۡہُمۡ فَلَا صَرِیۡخَ لَہُمۡ وَ لَا ہُمۡ یُنۡقَذُوۡنَ ﴿ۙ۴۳﴾ اِلَّا رَحۡمَۃً مِّنَّا وَ مَتَاعًا اِلٰی حِیۡنٍ ﴿۴۴﴾ And a great sign for them is also that We have carried their progeny[27] in ships laden with them and like the ship We have made for them things[28] [for traveling by land] on which they embark. And if We want, We can drown them. Then there will neither be anyone who hears their pleadings nor can they be saved. Except that it is Our mercy and to let them benefit till an appointed time [is the scheme]. (41-44) وَ اِذَا قِیۡلَ لَہُمُ اتَّقُوۡا مَا بَیۡنَ اَیۡدِیۡکُمۡ وَ مَا خَلۡفَکُمۡ لَعَلَّکُمۡ تُرۡحَمُوۡنَ ﴿۴۵﴾ وَ مَا تَاۡتِیۡہِمۡ مِّنۡ اٰیَۃٍ مِّنۡ اٰیٰتِ رَبِّہِمۡ اِلَّا کَانُوۡا عَنۡہَا مُعۡرِضِیۡنَ ﴿۴۶﴾ وَ اِذَا قِیۡلَ لَہُمۡ اَنۡفِقُوۡا مِمَّا رَزَقَکُمُ اللّٰہُ ۙ قَالَ الَّذِیۡنَ کَفَرُوۡا لِلَّذِیۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡۤا اَنُطۡعِمُ مَنۡ لَّوۡ یَشَآءُ اللّٰہُ اَطۡعَمَہٗۤ ٭ۖ اِنۡ اَنۡتُمۡ اِلَّا فِیۡ ضَلٰلٍ مُّبِیۡنٍ ﴿۴۷﴾ When they are warned: "[The heavens and the earth that surround you] from your front and back,[29] fear them[30] so that mercy be shown to you," they pay no heed.[31] And whichever sign among the signs of their Lord comes to them, they only ignore it. And when they are told: "Spend [for His cause] from the sustenance God has blessed you with," these people who have rejected [the messenger] say to the believers: "Should we feed those whom God can feed Himself if He chose? You people are in glaring error."[32] (45-47) وَ یَقُوۡلُوۡنَ مَتٰی ہٰذَا الۡوَعۡدُ اِنۡ کُنۡتُمۡ صٰدِقِیۡنَ ﴿۴۸﴾ مَا یَنۡظُرُوۡنَ اِلَّا صَیۡحَۃً وَّاحِدَۃً تَاۡخُذُہُمۡ وَ ہُمۡ یَخِصِّمُوۡنَ ﴿۴۹﴾ فَلَا یَسۡتَطِیۡعُوۡنَ تَوۡصِیَۃً وَّ لَاۤ اِلٰۤی اَہۡلِہِمۡ یَرۡجِعُوۡنَ ﴿۵۰﴾ They ask: "So when will this threat [of punishment] materialize [for us] if you people are truthful?" These people only await a shout which will seize them[33] while they will be arguing. Then they will neither be able to make a will nor will they be able to return to their people. (48-50) وَ نُفِخَ فِی الصُّوۡرِ فَاِذَا ہُمۡ مِّنَ الۡاَجۡدَاثِ اِلٰی رَبِّہِمۡ یَنۡسِلُوۡنَ ﴿۵۱﴾ قَالُوۡا یٰوَیۡلَنَا مَنۡۢ بَعَثَنَا مِنۡ مَّرۡقَدِنَا ٜۘؐ ہٰذَا مَا وَعَدَ الرَّحۡمٰنُ وَ صَدَقَ الۡمُرۡسَلُوۡنَ ﴿۵۲﴾ اِنۡ کَانَتۡ اِلَّا صَیۡحَۃً وَّاحِدَۃً فَاِذَا ہُمۡ جَمِیۡعٌ لَّدَیۡنَا مُحۡضَرُوۡنَ ﴿۵۳﴾ And [similarly, one day] the trumpet shall be sounded;[34] then suddenly they will come out of the graves one after the other and walk towards their Lord! [At that time,] they will say: "Our wretchedness! Who raised us from our grave?" This is the same thing which your Lord had promised you and [see that] the messengers had stated the absolute truth.[35] That too will only be a shout and suddenly all of them will be made to come to Our presence.[36] (51-53) فَالۡیَوۡمَ لَا تُظۡلَمُ نَفۡسٌ شَیۡئًا وَّ لَا تُجۡزَوۡنَ اِلَّا مَا کُنۡتُمۡ تَعۡمَلُوۡنَ ﴿۵۴﴾ اِنَّ اَصۡحٰبَ الۡجَنَّۃِ الۡیَوۡمَ فِیۡ شُغُلٍ فٰکِہُوۡنَ ﴿ۚ۵۵﴾ ہُمۡ وَ اَزۡوَاجُہُمۡ فِیۡ ظِلٰلٍ عَلَی الۡاَرَآئِکِ مُتَّکِـُٔوۡنَ ﴿۵۶﴾ لَہُمۡ فِیۡہَا فَاکِہَۃٌ وَّ لَہُمۡ مَّا یَدَّعُوۡنَ ﴿ۚۖ۵۷﴾ سَلٰمٌ ۟ قَوۡلًا مِّنۡ رَّبٍّ رَّحِیۡمٍ ﴿۵۸﴾ So, today[37] no person will suffer any injustice and you will get the return what you have been doing. Indeed, the dwellers of Paradise will today be engrossed in their interests.[38] They and their wives will be sitting leaning on thrones in shades.[39] For them, there will be fruits there and whatever they demand, will be available to them. They will be conveyed salam from the Lord who is ever-merciful. [40] (54-58) وَ امۡتَازُوا الۡیَوۡمَ اَیُّہَا الۡمُجۡرِمُوۡنَ ﴿۵۹﴾ اَلَمۡ اَعۡہَدۡ اِلَیۡکُمۡ یٰبَنِیۡۤ اٰدَمَ اَنۡ لَّا تَعۡبُدُوا الشَّیۡطٰنَ ۚ اِنَّہٗ لَکُمۡ عَدُوٌّ مُّبِیۡنٌ ﴿ۙ۶۰﴾ وَّ اَنِ اعۡبُدُوۡنِیۡ ؕؔ ہٰذَا صِرَاطٌ مُّسۡتَقِیۡمٌ ﴿۶۱﴾ وَ لَقَدۡ اَضَلَّ مِنۡکُمۡ جِبِلًّا کَثِیۡرًا ؕ اَفَلَمۡ تَکُوۡنُوۡا تَعۡقِلُوۡنَ ﴿۶۲﴾ ہٰذِہٖ جَہَنَّمُ الَّتِیۡ کُنۡتُمۡ تُوۡعَدُوۡنَ ﴿۶۳﴾ اِصۡلَوۡہَا الۡیَوۡمَ بِمَا کُنۡتُمۡ تَکۡفُرُوۡنَ ﴿۶۴﴾ And you wrongdoers! Detach today [from My servants. Now your world is separate and their world is separate]. Children of Adam! Had I not made it mandatory upon you to not worship Satan[41] because he is your open enemy and that worship Me alone? This only is the straight path. In spite of this, he has led astray a large group among you. Then did you not understand? This is the same Hell from which you would be warned. Now enter it because of your disbelief. (59-64) اَلۡیَوۡمَ نَخۡتِمُ عَلٰۤی اَفۡوَاہِہِمۡ وَ تُکَلِّمُنَاۤ اَیۡدِیۡہِمۡ وَ تَشۡہَدُ اَرۡجُلُہُمۡ بِمَا کَانُوۡا یَکۡسِبُوۡنَ ﴿۶۵﴾ Today We will seal their mouths[42] and their hands will inform us and their feet will bear witness to what they have been doing. (65) وَ لَوۡ نَشَآءُ لَطَمَسۡنَا عَلٰۤی اَعۡیُنِہِمۡ فَاسۡتَبَقُوا الصِّرَاطَ فَاَنّٰی یُبۡصِرُوۡنَ ﴿۶۶﴾ وَ لَوۡ نَشَآءُ لَمَسَخۡنٰہُمۡ عَلٰی مَکَانَتِہِمۡ فَمَا اسۡتَطَاعُوۡا مُضِیًّا وَّ لَا یَرۡجِعُوۡنَ ﴿۶۷﴾ وَ مَنۡ نُّعَمِّرۡہُ نُنَکِّسۡہُ فِی الۡخَلۡقِ ؕ اَفَلَا یَعۡقِلُوۡنَ ﴿۶۸﴾ If We wanted,[43] We would have effaced their eyes; then if they moved to the path, from where would they have seen? And if We intended, We would have deformed them at their very place; then they would neither have been able to move forward nor move backward.[44] [Do they not see that] he who is given a long life, We gradually reverse him in his creation.[45] Then do they not understand? (66-68) وَ مَا عَلَّمۡنٰہُ الشِّعۡرَ وَ مَا یَنۡۢبَغِیۡ لَہٗ ؕ اِنۡ ہُوَ اِلَّا ذِکۡرٌ وَّ قُرۡاٰنٌ مُّبِیۡنٌ ﴿ۙ۶۹﴾ لِّیُنۡذِرَ مَنۡ کَانَ حَیًّا وَّ یَحِقَّ الۡقَوۡلُ عَلَی الۡکٰفِرِیۡنَ ﴿۷۰﴾ [You call it poetry?[46]] We have not taught poetry to Our messenger and this is also not appropriate for him.[47] This is only a reminder[48] and a clear Qur'an[49] so that he can warn [through it] those who are alive[50] and God's argument is conclusively conveyed to the disbelievers. (69-70) اَوَ لَمۡ یَرَوۡا اَنَّا خَلَقۡنَا لَہُمۡ مِّمَّا عَمِلَتۡ اَیۡدِیۡنَاۤ اَنۡعَامًا فَہُمۡ لَہَا مٰلِکُوۡنَ ﴿۷۱﴾ وَ ذَلَّلۡنٰہَا لَہُمۡ فَمِنۡہَا رَکُوۡبُہُمۡ وَ مِنۡہَا یَاۡکُلُوۡنَ ﴿۷۲﴾ وَ لَہُمۡ فِیۡہَا مَنَافِعُ وَ مَشَارِبُ ؕ اَفَلَا یَشۡکُرُوۡنَ ﴿۷۳﴾ Have they not pondered that among that We have made beasts for them from among things which created from Our hands[51] and they are now their masters?[52] And We put them into their service such that they ride some among them and eat the meat of some, and there are other benefits in them for them as well and [specially] things to drink.[53] Then do they not show gratitude? [54] (71-73) وَ اتَّخَذُوۡا مِنۡ دُوۡنِ اللّٰہِ اٰلِہَۃً لَّعَلَّہُمۡ یُنۡصَرُوۡنَ ﴿ؕ۷۴﴾ لَا یَسۡتَطِیۡعُوۡنَ نَصۡرَہُمۡ ۙ وَ ہُمۡ لَہُمۡ جُنۡدٌ مُّحۡضَرُوۡنَ ﴿۷۵﴾ فَلَا یَحۡزُنۡکَ قَوۡلُہُمۡ ۘ اِنَّا نَعۡلَمُ مَا یُسِرُّوۡنَ وَ مَا یُعۡلِنُوۡنَ ﴿۷۶﴾ They have made other deities besides God hoping that they will be helped. They will not be able to help them; in fact, they will be called to presence as their army.[55] So, let not what they say grieve you [O Prophet!] We know whatever they conceal and whatever they reveal.[56] (74-76) اَوَ لَمۡ یَرَ الۡاِنۡسَانُ اَنَّا خَلَقۡنٰہُ مِنۡ نُّطۡفَۃٍ فَاِذَا ہُوَ خَصِیۡمٌ مُّبِیۡنٌ ﴿۷۷﴾ وَ ضَرَبَ لَنَا مَثَلًا وَّ نَسِیَ خَلۡقَہٗ ؕ قَالَ مَنۡ یُّحۡیِ الۡعِظَامَ وَ ہِیَ رَمِیۡمٌ ﴿۷۸﴾ قُلۡ یُحۡیِیۡہَا الَّذِیۡۤ اَنۡشَاَہَاۤ اَوَّلَ مَرَّۃٍ ؕ وَ ہُوَ بِکُلِّ خَلۡقٍ عَلِیۡمُۨ ﴿ۙ۷۹﴾ الَّذِیۡ جَعَلَ لَکُمۡ مِّنَ الشَّجَرِ الۡاَخۡضَرِ نَارًا فَاِذَاۤ اَنۡتُمۡ مِّنۡہُ تُوۡقِدُوۡنَ ﴿۸۰﴾ اَوَ لَیۡسَ الَّذِیۡ خَلَقَ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَ الۡاَرۡضَ بِقٰدِرٍ عَلٰۤی اَنۡ یَّخۡلُقَ مِثۡلَہُمۡ ؕ؃ بَلٰی ٭ وَ ہُوَ الۡخَلّٰقُ الۡعَلِیۡمُ ﴿۸۱﴾ اِنَّمَاۤ اَمۡرُہٗۤ اِذَاۤ اَرَادَ شَیۡئًا اَنۡ یَّقُوۡلَ لَہٗ کُنۡ فَیَکُوۡنُ ﴿۸۲﴾ فَسُبۡحٰنَ الَّذِیۡ بِیَدِہٖ مَلَکُوۡتُ کُلِّ شَیۡءٍ وَّ اِلَیۡہِ تُرۡجَعُوۡنَ ﴿۸۳﴾ [They express wonder on how they can be raised to life after they die.] Does not a human being[57] know that We created him from a drop of fluid; then he became an open adversary? He made fun of Us[58] and forgot His creation. He says: "Who can give life to bones when they will decay?" Say: It is He Who will bring them back to life Who had given them life in the first time and He knows all His creatures full well.[59] He Who made fire for you from a lush green tree;[60] then now you make fire from it. Does He Who created the heavens and the earth not have the power to create people like them? Why not! He is the grand creator, all-knowing. Such is His matter that when He decides to accomplish something, He need only say: "Be." And it is done.[61] So, glorious is He in Whose hands is the control of everything.[62] And you will be returned to Him alone.
