Description

This sūra opens with a declaration of the ‘sending down’ of the Qur’ān, and then condemns the folly  of idolatry in the face of God’s power and providence. The Prophet is set forth as a typical messenger  whose ‘Book’ confirms the Torah of Moses. Next comes the story of the punishment of the people of ‘Ād,  followed by one about a band of jinn who came to believe after listening to the Qur’ān. A conclusion  stresses the certainty of resurrection and judgment.
