The sura begins with three oaths; the night, the day and genders, each having its opposite qualities. It contrasts two types of people – the charitable and the miserly, and describes each of their characteristics and fate. The sura was revealed when there was one who refused to share even from his date palm branch which fell into his neighbours land.
