DOI: 10.1558/equinox.43768


This sūra begins with an affirmation of the Prophet’s mission. It then relates a parable about a ‘disbelieving city,’ enumerates the signs of God’s power and providence, and describes the different fates awaiting believers and disbelievers. Q36 receives its title from the two letters with which it begins.
