The Qur’ān speaks with the perfect knowledge of the Creator about His creation. This surah’s distinguishing feature is its historic narratives, sent down by the Lord of mankind to establish truth and to correct erroneous beliefs. It teaches with wisdom and establishes the best system of life for humanity.
The Prophet’s ﷺ recommendation to recite this sūrah weekly is an indication of its importance. It contains reminders of the end of the world and has been described by scholars as a source of guiding principles, instructive ethics and a foundation for sound belief. It illustrates that truth and righteousness are not related to wealth, position or authority but only to what has been commanded by Allah.
