This Medinan sura takes its title from the reference to the Prophet's private rooms in verse 4. It guides the believers on how to behave with proper respect towards their leader (verses 15), and with mutual respect and trust towards each other (verses 912). The sura stresses the unity of mankind and God's intention that people should live together in harmony (verse 13). It criticizes the desert Arabs for their presumptuous attitude to their faith and to God (verses 1418).
