THIS TWO-SECTION chapter is arranged in 14 verses which date from Madina. It was revealed after Haggling 64 and before the next one on Friday (OR Congregation) 62. The chapter begins with the refrain: "Whatever is in Heaven/and whatever is on Earth/celebrates God...", the same refrain as with Iron 57 and Banishment 59, four and two chapters preceding, and in the one immediately following, Friday (OR Congregation) 62. It also contains the famous prediction by Jesus that another messenger would follow him. The shorter chapters in the Quran begin here. In the name of God, the Mercy-giving, the Merciful! (1)
