Chapter 52 – at-Tur – “The Mountain”

Summary: A Meccan Surah addressing many of the arguments put to the Prophet by the disbelievers of Mecca. After a series of oaths, the Last Day is described and the bliss of Paradise is contrasted to the torment of Hell. The Prophet is urged to continue his call and to await Allah’s judgment. Allah swears by numerous objects of creation that the Last Day is inevitable, the first of which is the Mountain from which the chapter takes its name.

Chapter 53 – an-Najm – “The Star”

Summary: A Meccan Surah confirming the divine source of the Prophet’s message. Reference is made to the Nights Journey and Ascension, and the Prophets vision of Gabriel. Superstitious beliefs concerning Angels and goddesses is refuted, true belief is outlined, and the Surah closes by warning about the imminent Day of Judgment.
