A Medinan sura that urges the believers to spend in God's cause and uphold justice the sura takes its title from the iron mentioned in verse 25. The allpervasiveness of God's power, knowledge, control, and glory is affirmed to encourage the believers to right action, and the fate of the hypocrites is described. Previous prophets are mentioned (verses 267), especially Noah, Abraham, and Jesus, showing the response they received. The sura closes with a reference to the People of the Book.
