DOI: 10.1558/equinox.43791


Most of this sūra concerns the expulsion of the disbelievers among the ‘People of the Book’ from their homes and the division of spoils. It concludes with an exhortation to fear God, whose surpassing glory is revealed in his many different epithets. Q59 receives its title from ‘the gathering’ of the disbelievers for exile (Q59.2).
