Sura 6
Aya 92
وَهٰذا كِتابٌ أَنزَلناهُ مُبارَكٌ مُصَدِّقُ الَّذي بَينَ يَدَيهِ وَلِتُنذِرَ أُمَّ القُرىٰ وَمَن حَولَها ۚ وَالَّذينَ يُؤمِنونَ بِالآخِرَةِ يُؤمِنونَ بِهِ ۖ وَهُم عَلىٰ صَلاتِهِم يُحافِظونَ

Muhammad Asad

And this, too, is a divine writ which We have bestowed from on high - blessed, confirming the truth of whatever there still remains [of earlier revelations]1 - and [this] in order that thou mayest warn the foremost of all cities and all who dwell around it.2 And those who believe in the life to come do believe in this [warning]; and it is they who are ever-mindful of their prayers.
  • See surah 3, note 3.
  • "The foremost of all cities" (lit., "the mother of all towns") is an epithet applied in the Qur'an to Mecca because it is the place where the first temple ever dedicated to the One God was built (cf. 3":96) and subsequently became the qiblah (direction of prayer) of all believers. The expression "all who dwell around it" denotes all mankind (Tabari, on the authority of Ibn 'Abbas; Razi).
