An early Meccan sura that deals with the accusation that Muhammad was not God's Messenger but merely mad (verses 26). The arrogance of those who assume that, because they have some of the good things in this life, they can reject the Revelation, is rebutted (verses 1016). Examples are given of those who came to regret their arrogance (verses 1733). The Prophet is urged to remain steadfast (verses 4852).
