A. J. Droge is the translator of The Qur’an: A New Annotated Translation (Equinox, 2013), and the author of Homer or Moses? Early Christian Interpretations of the History of Culture and A Noble Death: Suicide and Martyrdom among Christians and Jews in Antiquity (with J.D. Tabor).

Description

This sūra opens by extolling the power and majesty of God and stresses the purpose of the Qur’ān as a warning. Next comes a declaration of the unity of religion in the face of religious differences. The contrasting fates of believers and disbelievers occupy much of the remainder of the sūra. The conclusion is noteworthy for the light it sheds on different modes of revelation. Q42 receives its title from the reference to the believers’ ‘consultation’ among themselves at Q42.38.
