Show Summary Details

Preview

A Meccan sura that describes the Day of Judgement (verses 818). One of the opponents of the Prophet challenged him to hasten the punishment they had been threatened with (verse 1), so the foolishness of the disbelievers in denying the Resurrection (verse 6) is exposed (verses 3644). The people who will be granted the Garden are described (verses 2235). The title is a reference to the paths through which angels ascend to God, mentioned in verses 34.
