Central Theme [ edit ] Last edited: 04/03/2016

The main theme of the Surah is to remove the doubts of the people concerning Monotheism (Tawhid), the Hereafter, the Prophethood and to invite them to all these three realities. The disbelievers of Makkah when they talked of the Prophet in private would say to one another ‘This person is forging something very strange, sometimes he gives news of what will happen after death. He says: ‘When you have become dust you will be called to render your accounts and there will be Hell and Heaven.’ Sometimes he says: ‘These gods and goddesses and saints are nonentities: One God alone is the Deity.’ And sometimes he says: ‘The discourses which I recite are not my own but God’s Word. All these are strange things which he presents.’ The answer to these doubts and misgivings forms the theme and subject matter of this Surah.

Period of Revelation [ edit ] Last edited: 04/03/2016

From the style of the Surah it appears that it was sent down during the early-middle Makkah period. This is due to little reference of the severity of the persecution and tyranny which one finds in the Surahs sent down in the later stages.
