If there were a recitation that could cause mountains to move, or the earth to split, or the dead to speak, ˹it would have been this Quran˺. But all matters are by Allah’s Will. Have the believers not yet realized that had Allah willed, He could have guided all of humanity? And disasters will continue to afflict the disbelievers or strike close to their homes for their misdeeds, until Allah’s promise comes to pass. Surely Allah never fails in His promise. Quran 13:31
The word ar-Ra’d (thunder), which this Surah is named after, is used in the 13th Surah of the Qur’an, in the 13th Juzz and is the 13th Ayat.
This Surah has 43 Ayaat.

وَلَوۡ اَنَّ قُرۡاٰنًا سُيِّرَتۡ بِهِ الۡجِبَالُ اَوۡ قُطِّعَتۡ بِهِ الۡاَرۡضُ اَوۡ كُلِّمَ بِهِ الۡمَوۡتٰى‌ ؕ بَلْ لِّلّٰهِ الۡاَمۡرُ جَمِيۡعًا ‌ؕ 
اَفَلَمۡ يَايۡــَٔسِ الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡۤا اَنۡ لَّوۡ يَشَآءُ اللّٰهُ لَهَدَى النَّاسَ جَمِيۡعًا ؕ 
وَلَا يَزَالُ الَّذِيۡنَ كَفَرُوۡا تُصِيۡبُهُمۡ بِمَا صَنَعُوۡا قَارِعَةٌ اَوۡ تَحُلُّ قَرِيۡبًا مِّنۡ دَارِهِمۡ حَتّٰى يَاۡتِىَ وَعۡدُ اللّٰهِ‌ ؕ 
اِنَّ اللّٰهَ لَا يُخۡلِفُ الۡمِيۡعَادَ‏
The basic theme of the Surah is divine guidance.
Allah has created this whole universe.
He knows what is in the wombs and every thing is under His knowledge.
He sent His prophets and guides to all people for their guidance
and now the Last Messenger has come.
اور اگر کوئی قرآن ایسا ہوتا کہ اس (کی تاثیر) سے 
پہاڑ چل پڑتے 
یا زمین پھٹ جاتی 
یا مردوں سے کلام کرسکتے۔ 
(تو یہی قرآن ان اوصاف سے متصف ہوتا مگر) بات یہ ہے کہ سب باتیں خدا کے اختیار میں ہیں 
تو کیا مومنوں کو اس سے اطمینان نہیں ہوا کہ 
اگر خدا چاہتا تو سب لوگوں کو ہدایت کے رستے پر چلا دیتا۔ 
اور کافروں پر ہمیشہ ان کے اعمال کے بدلے بلا آتی رہے گی 
یا ان کے مکانات کے قریب نازل ہوتی رہے گی 
یہاں تک کہ خدا کا وعدہ آپہنچے۔ 
بےشک خدا وعدہ خلاف نہیں کرتا
Allah’s signs in nature.
Allah knows everything; the whole universe praises Him. Those who have eyes can see the truth. The truth has an abiding power.
The faithful and unfaithful, their characters and their ends.
The comfort of the hearts is in the remembrance of Allah. Those who deny Allah, no signs or miracles can help them.
People in the past also denied Allah’s Prophets and laughed at them, but what were their ends.
Prophet Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. The witness is Allah and all those who have the knowledge of the Scriptures of Allah.
