 [Verses] Made Distinct

Preview

This Meccan sura deals with the obduracy of the disbelievers, the truthfulness of the Quran, the unity of God, and the inevitability of Resurrection. The title refers to a term used to describe the Quran in verse 3 and again in verse 44. The sura makes several references to the senses (verses 5, 202, 44) which the disbelievers shut off from perceiving the Truth in this world, and which will then testify against their owners on the Day of Resurrection, and it describes the arrogance displayed by people when all is well, contrasted with their humility and despair when difficulties strike (verses 4951).
