About This Surah
A Meccan sura that affirms God’s power and Creation and contrasts this with the powerlessness and uselessness of the ‘partners’ set up by the idolaters. The sura warns the idolaters of their punishment and comforts the Prophet through mention of previous messengers who were also rejected as liars. The great rewards that await believers are described.
