Description

This sūra opens with a vivid description of the Last Day, when people will be divided into three classes – ‘the foremost’ and ‘the companions on the right and left’ – whose rewards and punishments are then described. The second half of the sūra extols God’s power and providence, and praises the Qur’ān.
