About This Surah
A Meccan sura that gives an account of what a group of jinn said when they overheard a recitation of the Qur’an and realized its truth (verses 1–15). This is a lesson to the Meccan Arabs, who are also told that the Prophet can help them only by delivering the Message–God is the All-Powerful One (verses 16—28). The disbelievers are threatened with what they will meet on the Day of Judgement (verses 23—7).
