Description

This sūra opens with a declaration of the ‘sending down’ of the Qur’ān and an enumeration of the signs  of God’s power and providence in nature. The Prophet is urged to follow God’s path independently of  the Sons of Israel. The sūra concludes with a judgment scene at which each community will be found  ‘kneeling.’
