077 – Al Mursalaat – Those which are sent (winds)

The chapter begins with oaths on the different aspects of winds – raging hurricanes to those which distribute provision and an oath on the angels who bring down revelation..
A reminder that Divinity controls life through the winds and enough of a sign to know that what has been promised will happen (the day of Judgement). 
A graphic description follows with the first appearance of the phrase “Woe (destruction)  to those who deny the truth” which is repeated ten times affirming that the unjust of all generations will meet the same end.
Reflection on creation as a sign of Allah’s power is followed by the contrast of the fate of those who reject the truth to the rewards of the God conscious. 
The chapter ends with a final warning to those who covered up the truth and refused to pray and believe.
