The sura opens with an oath upon the Qur’an and its revelation on a blessed night in which there are benefits beyond expectation and the awakening of the good dormant in every human being.
A warning to those who deny Divinity and mock the Prophet is followed by a historical example of the account of Firawn who rejected Prophet Musa. The subsequent deliverance of the Bani Israil and drowning of Firawn leaving behind all his extravagance. The inevitability of the Day of Judgement and a graphic description of both Jahannam and Janna follow.
It ends with a reminder that the Qur’an is easy on the tongue for remembrance and an order to wait for the victory of the mission of the Prophet.
