Surah al-Mursalat (Those Sent Forth) 77 : 34
1. Lessons/Guidance/Reflections/Gems[ edit ]
They are told to go, and they know where they will have to go. Therefore, their destination is not mentioned by name: "It throws up sparks as huge as forts, as bright as yellow camels." (Verses 32-33) Sparks are thrown in quick succession, but they are as big as large stone buildings, looking like yellow camels grazing. Such are the sparks thrown up by this fire. What is that fire like? At the moment we are absorbed in thought about this, the stern warning is repeated: "Woe on that day betide those who deny the truth." (Verse 34)
The surah has described the physical horror, giving us an image of hell.

7. Period of Revelation[ edit ]
Its subject matter bears full evidence that it was revealed in the earliest period at Makkah. If this Surah is read together with the two Surahs preceding it, namely Surah 75: al-Qiyamah (The Resurrection) and Surah 76: al-Insan (Man) and the two Surahs following it, namely Surah 78: an-Naba’ (The News) and Surah 79: an-Nazi’at (The Extractors), it becomes obvious that all these Surahs are the Revelations of the same period and they deal with one and the same theme, which has been impressed on the people of Makkah in different ways.
