About This Surah
A Meccan sura that confirms the divine source of the Prophet’s message and refers to his ascension to heaven during the Night Journey (verses 1–18). The sura refutes the claims of the disbelievers about the goddesses and the angels (verses 19–28), and the third paragraph lists several truths about God’s power. The sura closes with a warning of the imminent Day of Judgement.
