A Meccan sura, dealing with the Day of Resurrection and man's denial of that Day. God's power is convincingly described in several vignettes (verses 34, 2630, 3440). The third paragraph instructs the Prophet on appropriate reception of the revelation (verses 1619), and thereby serves to emphasize that the Quran is indeed God's word.
