 Ranged in Rowsa

Show Summary Details


The central point of this Meccan sura is the unity of God (verses 4 and 1802) and the refutation of the pagan belief that the angels were daughters of God and worthy of worship. The angels themselves are quoted to refute this (verses 1646). The prophethood of Muhammad, is affirmed, as is the Hereafter. There are two supporting sections: the scenes in the Hereafter (verses 1968) and the stories of earlier prophets (verses 75148).
