DOI: 10.1558/equinox.43784


This sūra opens with a series of affirmations of the certainty and imminence of the Day of Judgment. This is followed by a description of the delights awaiting the righteous in Paradise. The latter half of the sūra is an unrelenting diatribe against the disbelievers. Q52 receives its title from the reference to Mount Sinai in the opening verse.
