هُوَ ٱلَّذِی یُرِیكُمُ ٱلۡبَرۡقَ خَوۡفࣰا وَطَمَعࣰا وَیُنشِئُ ٱلسَّحَابَ ٱلثِّقَالَ

وَیُسَبِّحُ ٱلرَّعۡدُ بِحَمۡدِهِۦ وَٱلۡمَلَـٰۤىِٕكَةُ مِنۡ خِیفَتِهِۦ وَیُرۡسِلُ ٱلصَّوَ ٰعِقَ فَیُصِیبُ بِهَا مَن یَشَاۤءُ وَهُمۡ یُجَـٰدِلُونَ فِی ٱللَّهِ وَهُوَ شَدِیدُ ٱلۡمِحَالِ
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 وہی تو ہے جو تم کو ڈرانے اور امید دلانے کے لیے بجلی دکھاتا اور بھاری بھاری بادل پیدا کرتا ہے 

اور رعد اور فرشتے سب اس کے خوف سے اس کی تسبیح و تحمید کرتے رہتے ہیں 
اور وہی بجلیاں بھیجتا ہے پھر جس پر چاہتا ہے گرا بھی دیتا ہے 
اور وہ خدا کے بارے میں جھگڑتے ہیں۔ 
اور وہ بڑی قوت والا ہے
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.
