لَا تُزِغۡ قُلُوبَنَا 
بَعۡدَ إِذۡ هَدَیۡتَنَا 
وَهَبۡ لَنَا 
مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحۡمَةًۚ 
إِنَّكَ أَنتَ ٱلۡوَهَّابُ‎
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 ہمارے رب
تو نے ہمیں ہدایت عطا فرمائی ہے،

اس کے بعد
 ہمارے دلوں کو ٹیڑھا نہ کر
اور ہمیں اپنے پاس سے
 رحمت عطا فرما، 

بیشک تو بڑاعطا فرمانے والاہے۔
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.
