Chapter: 74. The Cloaked One

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.43806


This sūra is a collection of diverse passages. It opens with a command to the Prophet to ‘arise and warn.’ This is followed by sections dealing with an opponent, the number of angels guarding Hell, and the fate of those who disregard the message. Q74 takes its title from the opening address to the Prophet as ‘the one wrapped up in his cloak.’
