    Period of revelation: This Surah is one of the early Surahs revealed at Makkah.Major issues, Divine Laws and Guidance:

    • A scene from the scenes of the Doomsday.
    • The Qur’an is conveyed to the Prophet through angel Gabriel.
    • This message of the Qur’an is for all the people of the world.
     This Surah has two themes:
    1. The Hereafter and
    2. The Institution of Risalat (Prophethood).
     The first six verses mention the first stage of the Doomsday, when the sun will lose its light, the stars will scatter, the mountains will be uprooted and dispersed, the people will become heedless of their dearest possessions, the beasts of the jungle will be stupefied and gather together, and the seas will boil up. The next seven verses mention the second stage when the souls will be reunited with their bodies, the records will be laid open, the people will be called to account for their deeds, the heavens will be unveiled, and the Hell and the Heaven will be brought into full view. After depicting the Hereafter this way, man has been left to ponder over his own deeds, saying: “Then each man shall himself know what he has brought with him.” The people of Makkah are addressed: “Whatever Muhammad (peace be upon him) is presenting before you, is not the bragging of a madman, nor an evil suggestion inspired by Satan, but the word of a noble exalted and trustworthy messenger (Gabriel) sent by Allah, whim Muhammad (peace be upon him) has seen with his own eyes in the bright horizon of the clear sky in broad day light.”
