THIS EARLY chapter was revealed after The Gossipmonger 104 and (The Letter) Qaf 50 (compare it also with Chapter 51 called Winnowing [Winds] and The Chargers 100). It consists of 50 Meccan verses, although v. 48 dates from Madina. This chapter has another refrain running through it: "[It will be] too bad for rejectors on that day!" and begins with a series of oaths. The whole expresses a poetic mood which is extremely difficult to capture in translation. Compare this manner with the one in The Chargers 100. In the name of God, the Mercy-giving, the Merciful! (i)
