THIS CHAPTER of six sections contains 118 late Meccan verses, all in fact except for the very last one. it was revealed after Prophets 21 and before Worship 32 and The Inevitable 56. It takes its name from the first sentence in the chapter (NOTE that Chapter 40 has an alternate title, The Believer, with the same noun used in the singular). The mood here is somewhat poetic with its initial vision of creation and man's reproduction; then it relates God's transcendent care in providing for mankind and the Universe. Noah's mission is mentioned next (II), followed by a description of the final reward in an inspiring scene (IV). Then one follows on God in all His Oneness (V), which continues to the end of the chapter. In the name of God, the Mercy-giving, the Merciful! PART THIRTEEN The True Believer (I)
