Chapter: 61. The Lines

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.43793


This sūra consists of several short passages. Notable among them is a section on Israel’s opposition to Moses, Jesus, and finally the Prophet, whose coming (under the name of ‘Aḥmad’) Jesus is said to have predicted. Q61 takes its title from the reference to troops drawn up in battle ‘lines’ (Q61.4).
