This sura was revealed specifically about the people who gossiped about and slandered the Prophet (pbuh). Most of them were those with wealth and power and they continuously boasted about their might and wealth continually counting it and thinking it would make them immortal, mocking the Muslims. The sura warns that one who takes refuge in health, wealth or anything that is destructible will lose it and find him/herself in a loss. The punishment predicted is dire yet natural and to be expected.
