Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “O Allah! Lord over all authorities! You give authority to whoever You please and remove it from who You please; You honour whoever You please and disgrace who You please—all good is in Your Hands. Surely You ˹alone˺ are Most Capable of everything.You cause the night to pass into the day and the day into the night. You bring forth the living from the dead and the dead from the living. And You provide for whoever You will without limit.” Quran 3:26~27

قُلِ ٱللَّهُمَّ مَلِكَ ٱلْمُلْكِ تُؤْتِى ٱلْمُلْكَ مَن تَشَآءُ وَتَنزِعُ ٱلْمُلْكَ مِمَّن تَشَآءُ وَتُعِزُّ مَن تَشَآءُ وَتُذِلُّ مَن تَشَآءُ ۖ بِيَدِكَ ٱلْخَيْرُ ۖ إِنَّكَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍۢ قَدِيرٌۭ ‎
‏تُولِجُ ٱلَّيْلَ فِى ٱلنَّهَارِ وَتُولِجُ ٱلنَّهَارَ فِى ٱلَّيْلِ ۖ وَتُخْرِجُ ٱلْحَىَّ مِنَ ٱلْمَيِّتِ وَتُخْرِجُ ٱلْمَيِّتَ مِنَ ٱلْحَىِّ ۖ وَتَرْزُقُ مَن تَشَآءُ بِغَيْرِ حِسَابٍۢ
It is named after Ale-Imran ‘the family of Imran’ – Imran being the grandfather of Jesus [Isa], and the father of Mary [Maryam]. Other than this Surah, Imran is not mentioned in the rest of the Qur’an with the exception of Surah 66: at-Tahreem – ‘Maryam daughter of Imran’ [66:12].
Zahra – The Prophet is reported to have called al-Baqarah and Ale-Imran as ‘Zahrawayn’ [Two Lights (of guidance)]
(اے حبيب! يوں) عرض کيجئے:
 اے الله!،
 سلطنت کے مالک!
 تُو جسے چاہے سلطنت عطا فرما دے
 اور جس سے چاہے سلطنت چھين لے
 اور تُو جسے چاہے عزت عطا فرما دے
 اور جسے چاہے ذلّت دے،
 ساري بھلائي تيرے ہي دستِ قدرت ميں ہے،
 بيشک تُو ہر چيز پر بڑي قدرت والا ہے، 
تو ہي رات کو دن ميں داخل کرتا ہے 
اور دن کو رات ميں داخل کرتا ہے 
اور تُو ہي زندہ کو مُردہ سے نکالتا ہے 
اورمُردہ کو زندہ سے نکالتا ہے 
اور جسے چاہتا ہے بغير حساب کے
 (اپني نوازشات سے) بہرہ اندوز کرتا ہے،
The main topics of this Surah are Tawhid, Prophethood and the truth of the Qur’ an. As Surah al-Baqarah discussed the issues related to Bani Israel, this Surah discusses some issues related to the Christian community and their religious positions. It also discusses the subjects of Hajj, Jihad, Zakat and Riba. It ends, like Surah al-Baqarah, with a profound dua.
