040 – Al Ghaafir – The Forgiver

Other name: Al Mu’min – The Believer.
The sura begins with an introduction to He who revealed the Qurʼan…
“The Forgiver of sins, Accepter of repentance, Strict in punishment, Lord of bounty …” 
These all manifest His authority on the Day of Judgement. It takes its title from verse 28 (derived from the believing man in Pharaohʼs court) or alternatively, from Forgiving, the first word in verse 3. This is the first of the group of suwerknown as Hawameem (Suwer 40-46) which all start with ʻHaMeemʼ.
