وَبَیۡنَهُمَا حِجَابࣱۚ 
وَعَلَى ٱلۡأَعۡرَافِ رِجَالࣱ یَعۡرِفُونَ كُلَّۢا بِسِیمَىٰهُمۡۚ وَنَادَوۡا۟ أَصۡحَـٰبَ ٱلۡجَنَّةِ 
أَن سَلَـٰمٌ عَلَیۡكُمۡۚ
لَمۡ یَدۡخُلُوهَا وَهُمۡ یَطۡمَعُونَ
وَإِذَا صُرِفَتۡ أَبۡصَـٰرُهُمۡ تِلۡقَاۤءَ أَصۡحَـٰبِ ٱلنَّارِ قَالُوا۟ رَبَّنَا لَا تَجۡعَلۡنَا 
مَعَ ٱلۡقَوۡمِ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِینَ
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.
ان دونوں (یعنی بہشت اور دوزخ) کے درمیان (اعراف نام کی) 
ایک دیوار ہو گی 
اور اعراف پر کچھ آدمی ہوں گے 
جو سب کو ان کی صورتوں سے پہچان لیں گے۔ 

تو وہ اہل بہشت کو پکار کر کہیں گے کہ تم پر سلامتی ہو۔ 

یہ لوگ بھی بہشت میں داخل تو نہیں ہوں گے مگر امید رکھتے ہوں گے 

اور جب ان کی نگاہیں پلٹ کر 
اہل دوزخ کی طرف جائیں گی 
تو عرض کریں گے کہ
اے ہمارے پروردگار 
ہم کو ظالم لوگوں کے ساتھ 
شامل نہ کیجیو
