Chapter: 32. The Prostration

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.43764


This sūra opens with a pronouncement about the truth of the Qur’ān. It then extols God’s power as creator and defends the resurrection against the objection of disbelievers, whose fate is contrasted with the ultimate vindication of believers. Q32 takes its title from the ‘prostration’ of believers in worship (Q32.15).
