This sūra opens with a declaration of God’s creative power, followed by a condemnation of idolatry. The certainty of judgment and the authenticity of the Qur’ān are also stressed. A final section contains stories about Noah and Moses (Q10.71–103). It receives its title from the reference to ‘Jonah’s people’ at Q10.98.
