Indeed, there was a group of My servants who used to pray, ‘Our Lord! We have believed, so forgive us and have mercy on us, for You are the best of those who show mercy,’but you were ˹so busy˺ making fun of them that It made you forget My remembrance. And you used to laugh at them.Today I have indeed rewarded them for their perseverance: they are certainly the triumphant.”Quran 23:109~111

إِنَّهُۥ كَانَ فَرِیقࣱ مِّنۡ عِبَادِی یَقُولُونَ 
رَبَّنَاۤ ءَامَنَّا فَٱغۡفِرۡ لَنَا وَٱرۡحَمۡنَا 
وَأَنتَ خَیۡرُ ٱلرَّ ٰحِمِینَ

فَٱتَّخَذۡتُمُوهُمۡ سِخۡرِیًّا 
حَتَّىٰۤ أَنسَوۡكُمۡ ذِكۡرِی 
وَكُنتُم مِّنۡهُمۡ تَضۡحَكُونَ

إِنِّی جَزَیۡتُهُمُ ٱلۡیَوۡمَ 
بِمَا صَبَرُوۤا۟ 
أَنَّهُمۡ هُمُ ٱلۡفَاۤىِٕزُونَ
In this Surah people are invited to accept and follow the Prophet. This is the central theme of the Surah. It speaks about the character of true believers and assures that they will be the real successful people. It draws attention to various stages of human creation, to many other universal signs. Then it takes some of the stories of other prophets and tells us that they also preached the same message.
میرے بندوں میں ایک گروہ تھا 
جو دعا کیا کرتا تھا کہ 
اے ہمارے پروردگار 
ہم ایمان لائے تو 
تُو ہم کو بخش دے 
اور ہم پر رحم کر 
اور تو سب سے بہتر 
رحم کرنے والا ہے 

تو تم ان سے تمسخر کرتے رہے 
یہاں تک کہ ان کے پیچھے 
میری یاد بھی بھول گئے 
اور تم (ہمیشہ) ان سے ہنسی 
کیا کرتے تھے 

آج میں نے اُن کو 
اُن کے صبر کا بدلہ دیا، 
کہ وہ کامیاب ہوگئے
The character of the Believers. Various stages of human creation and Allah’s signs in the universe.
The Message of Prophet Noah, his people’s response and then the flood.
Generations were raised after Prophet Noah. Many prophets were sent among them. Then came Prophet Moses and Aaron and then came Jesus – peace be upon them all.
All prophets are one Ummah and preached the same religion. Those who are affluent think that they are also the righteous people, but the righteous are only those who do the good deeds.
Everything in the heaven and earth belongs to Allah.
Prophet’s job is to continue presenting the message of Allah.
