وَلَقَدۡ ذَرَأۡنَا لِجَهَنَّمَ كَثِیرࣰا مِّنَ ٱلۡجِنِّ وَٱلۡإِنسِۖ

 لَهُمۡ قُلُوبࣱ لَّا یَفۡقَهُونَ بِهَا
 وَلَهُمۡ أَعۡیُنࣱ لَّا یُبۡصِرُونَ بِهَا 
وَلَهُمۡ ءَاذَانࣱ لَّا یَسۡمَعُونَ بِهَاۤۚ
أُو۟لَـٰۤىِٕكَ كَٱلۡأَنۡعَـٰمِ
 بَلۡ هُمۡ أَضَلُّۚ

 أُو۟لَـٰۤىِٕكَ هُمُ ٱلۡغَـٰفِلُونَ
Al-A’raf – The Elevations. Allah mentions Paradise and Hellfire and then speaks of the ‘elevations’ between them reserved for some amongst humanity. These people not knowing what will happen to them. The people of Hell-fire will be refused water as it will be prohibited for the disbelievers in the after-life.
اور یہ حقیقت ہے کہ بہت سے جن اور انسان ایسے ہیں 
جن کو ہم نے جہنم ہی کے لیے پیدا کیا ہے

ان کے پاس دل ہیں مگر وہ ان سے سوچتے نہیں 
ان کے پاس آنکھیں ہیں مگر وہ ان سے دیکھتے نہیں 
ان کے پاس کان ہیں مگر وہ ان سے سنتے نہیں 

وہ جانوروں کی طرح ہیں 
بلکہ ان سے بھی زیادہ گئے گزرے، 

یہی وہ ہیں جو 
غفلت میں کھو گئے ہیں
The basic theme of this Surah is Risalah, i.e. Allah’s message as it was sent through many messengers. Several Prophets and parts of their stories are mentioned to emphasize Prophets’ mission and their struggle with their people. The Surah tells us that Allah’s Prophets suffered for the cause of truth. Their enemies tried to harm them, but then Allah helped his prophets and defeated their enemies. The Surah emphasizes that the true message must be presented under all circumstances. After the Prophets it is the duty of the Believers to convey the message of Allah to all people.
