THESE 22 MECCAN verses were revealed after The Sun 91 and before The Figtree 95. The chapter is named from the starry 'mansions9 in the sky called the signs of the zodiac. It is rhymed, generally in -d. The chapter concerns the Christians who lived in the Najran highlands to the south of the Hijaz, north of Yaman and east of the Red Sea before Islam; they were massacred by Dhu-Nuwas, a Jewish king of Yaman, by being burned alive in the year 570 A.D., when the Prophet had just been bom. In the name of God, the Mercy-giving, the Merciful !
