Description

This sūra opens with the famous report of a ‘night journey.’ A variety of topics follow, including a series of commandments resembling the decalogue, as well as passages dealing with the nature and purpose of the Qur’ān. The Prophet’s role as the ‘messenger’ is emphasized, and disbelievers are chastised for their objection that he is merely a human being who performs no miracles.
