The chapter begins with the various accusations directed to the Prophet and Divinity’s response. A reminder that people before them had been destroyed for mocking Divine Guidance and could do nothing to ward of punishment. Human beings are reminded that all souls will taste death and will be accountable.
After a brief mention of Musa and Harun, there is a longer account of Ibraheem when he broke the idols and the attempt of his people to burn him alive in retaliation. After mentioning Lut and Nuh, the chapter talks about Dawud and Sulayman. This is followed by the dua of Yunus in the belly of the whale and mentions of Ismail, Idrees, Zhulkifl, Zakariyya, Yahya & Maryam.
The chapter continues with the signs of the end of the world and the coming of the Day of Judgement – the release of Yajuj and Majuj and the rolling of the skies.
It ends with a statement that the Prophet is a mercy to the worlds and he is a warner of the consequences of defiant disobedience to Divinity and does not know when finality will occur.
