THIS CHAPTER containing 11 early Meccan verses was revealed after Eventide 103 and before Plenty 108. Its panting racehorses (which are mares) make a vivid picture, but they also give a keen sense of foreboding, somewhat as in Winnowing [Winds] 51 and [Winds] Sent Forth 77. The final syllables -a(n), -id, and ur carry the rhymes. In the name of God, the Mercy-giving, the Merciful!
