أَوَ لَمۡ یَنظُرُوا۟ فِی مَلَكُوتِ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَ ٰتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ 
وَمَا خَلَقَ ٱللَّهُ مِن شَیۡءࣲ وَأَنۡ عَسَىٰۤ أَن یَكُونَ 
قَدِ ٱقۡتَرَبَ أَجَلُهُمۡۖ 
فَبِأَیِّ حَدِیثِۭ 
بَعۡدَهُۥ یُؤۡمِنُونَ
مَن یُضۡلِلِ ٱللَّهُ 
فَلَا هَادِیَ لَهُۥۚ 
وَیَذَرُهُمۡ فِی طُغۡیَـٰنِهِمۡ یَعۡمَهُونَ
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.
کیا ان لوگوں نے آسمان و زمین 
کے انتظام پر کبھی غور نہیں کیا 
اور کسی چیز کو بھی جو خدا نے پیدا کی ہے آنکھیں کھول کر نہیں دیکھا؟ 
اور کیا یہ بھی انہوں نے نہیں سوچا کہ شاید اِن کی مہلت زندگی پوری ہونے کا وقت قریب آ لگا ہو؟ 
پھر آخر پیغمبرؐ کی اِس تنبیہ کے بعد اور کونسی بات ایسی ہو سکتی ہے جس پر یہ ایمان لائیں؟ 
جس کو اللہ رہنمائی سے محروم کر دے اُس کے لیے پھر کوئی رہنما نہیں ہے، 
اور اللہ اِنہیں اِن کی سرکشی ہی 
میں بھٹکتا ہوا چھوڑے دیتا ہے
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.
