About This Surah
A Meccan sura, dealing with the Day of Resurrection and man’s denial of that Day. God’s power is convincingly described in several vignettes (verses 3–4, 26–30, 34–40). The third paragraph instructs the Prophet on appropriate reception of the revelation (verses 16–19), and thereby serves to emphasize that the Qur’an is indeed God’s word.
