A Meccan sura which deals predominantly with the Resurrection and the Day of Judgement. Reference is made to previous generations of disbelievers (verses 1214), both to warn the disbelievers in Mecca and to reassure the Prophet. Creation is cited as an indication of God's ability to bring the dead to life again (verses 311), and emphasis is placed on the powerlessness of man on the Day of Resurrection (verses 2030). The sura both opens and closes with mention of the Quran.
