It deals predominantly with the Resurrection and the Day of Judgement. Reference is made to previous generations of disbelievers,[1] both to warn the disbelievers in Mecca and to reassure the Prophet. Creation is cited as an indication of God’s ability to bring the dead to life again,[2] and emphasis is placed on the powerlessness of man on the Day of Resurrection.[3] The surah both opens and closes with mention of the Quran.
