This sūra begins with a series of stories about earlier prophets. The longest of these is the story of Mary and Jesus (Q19.16–36), from which Q19 receives its title. The remainder of the sūra explains the role of angels, responds to objections about the resurrection, and pronounces judgment on disbelievers.
