This sura was revealed after a brief pause in the revelations of the Qur’an and the people of Makka were mocking the Prophet (pbuh) saying that his Lord had forsaken him. When sura Al Dhuhaa was revealed, it gave him a new strength and silenced the enemies. It begins with two oaths and then informs the Prophet (pbuh) of the good news that Allah has never forsaken him nor left him alone and will provide for him. It shows the intimate manner in which Allah comforted him during his anxiety. In the last verses He reminds the Prophet (pbuh) of his past life to illustrate how Allah has always bestowed His loving care on him and in the most difficult moments has supported him. This sura is coupled with Suratul Inshirah (94).
