THIS CHAPTER of eight sections is made up of 135 Meccan verses although w. 130 and 131 (in VIII) are Madinese. It was revealed after the previous one on Mary 19 and before The Inevitable 56. The title comes from its opening letters, which are now used as a man's name, as in the case of the similar title Ya-Sin 36. It begins with the story of Moses (I-II), narrated in a conversational style, full of vivid word pictures. The initial rhyme and rhythm are very soothing. Then we are told how to read the Quran and about Adam's fall (VI); while the chapter ends with a section on prayer (VIII). Its sections are long and the message comes in a very narrative style, which provides relief for the Prophet's troubles in his native city. Some have called it the best of the Meccan chapters. In the name of God, the Mercy-giving, the Merciful! (I)
