This sura begins by mentioning the earthquake announcing the Day of Judgment which will make the earth lay open her secrets. It pivots on three points: First, it speaks about the preliminary signs of the Hereafter, and then, it tells us about the earth as a witness to all of the human being’s deeds. In the third part, people are divided into two groups: good and evil, each of which will receive the fruit of their own actions.
