The chapter begins with an oath on the soothing morning light akin to revelation. The next oath is about the stillness of the night when it comes alluding to the period of time when there was a pause in revelation which saddened the Prophet. The wife of Abu Lahab – Umm Jameela taunted him telling him that his God had forsaken him.
The chapter continues with an assertion from Divinity that He has not abandoned him nor is He unhappy with him. It continues to remind the Prophet of Allah’s limitless grace and support for him. The main theme of the chapter is consolation to the Prophet ending with an exhortation to care for the orphans, never to rebuke the one who asks and to proclaim Divine blessings.
