The first part of this sūra describes the defiance of the Prophet’s contemporaries. Next come stories of David, Solomon, Job, and several others. It then describes the different fates awaiting believers and disbelievers, before concluding with the story of Iblīs. Q38 takes its title from the letter with which it begins.
