DOI: 10.1558/equinox.43816


This sūra opens with a description of events of the Last Day that will culminate in the resurrection and judgment. It concludes with a warning to those who reject the Qur’ān. Its title comes from ‘the splitting’ of the sky, one of the cosmic signs that the Last Day is at hand.
