Explanatory Note

Then follows a scene of misery, that is at once both violent and infinitely powerful. The surah takes another step, beyond resurrection, to describe the fate of the tyrant unbelievers and also that of the righteous. It begins with the former group who raise doubts about the fateful tiding.
