General Tafseer

The first five aayah of this nineteen aayah makkan surah are the first of the revelation to come down to Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu aleihi wa The angel Jibreel aleyhi salam came to the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa when he was in the cave pressed him and demanded that the he Sallalahu aleihi wa read. After pressing him for the third time, upon releasing the Prophet, Jibreel recited the first five aayah of this sura.

The following aayah describes man as thinking he is self-sufficient, Allaah then reminds us that to Him is our return. Aayah nine until the end of the surah describe some of the behaviors and characteristics of Abu Jahl. Allaah threatened to seize him and punish him in Hell.

This is is the first surah that we have come across that has a prostration point, found in the last aayah.
Upon hearing this aayah, the reader and the listener, all, can make a sujud to Allaah.
