A Meccan sura which addresses many of the arguments put to the Prophet by the disbelievers of Mecca (verses 2949). The bliss that will be enjoyed by the believers is contrasted to the torments of Hell, and the Prophet is urged to bide his time, to continue to deliver his message, and to wait with confidence for God's judgement. God swears by, among other things, Mount S inai, from which the sura takes its title, that the Day of Judgement is inevitable.
