Sūrat al-Mursalāt (Arabic: سورة المرسلات‎) (The Emissaries, Winds Sent Forth) is the 77th chapter (sura) of the Quran with 50 verses.[1]


Ḥadīth (حديث) is literally "speech"; recorded saying or tradition of the Prophet Muhammad validated by isnad; with sira these comprise the sunnah and reveal shariah and tafsir is the Arabic word for exegesis of the Qur'an. The first and foremost exegesis of Quran is found in hadith of Muhammad[2] thus making it important to consider the hadith related to a particular surah when studying it.

1- Abdullah ibn Masud was a ṣaḥābī or companion of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, and an early convert to Islam, narrates that this surah was revealed while he as in a cave at Mina, Saudi Arabia with Messenger of Allah and records and incident of a snaking leaping on them while both remained safe.[3][4][5]

2- Ibn ‘Abbas narrated this Surat was the last thing that Umm Al-Fadl (his mother) she heard from the Messenger of Allah . He recited it in the Maghrib prayer.[6][7][8][9] (i.e., before he died).” Both Al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim recorded this report in the Two Sahihs by way of Malik.

3- Sahabah report[10] that Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) used to recite surahs An-Naba (78) and al-Mursalat (77) in one rak'ah, and surahs Ad-Dukhan (44) and At-Takwir (81) in one rak'ah.[11][12]
