Sorry. But I've been looking at this sura for days, and it's a yawner. Yeah, probably not fair, but this sura's fifty lines basically combines the message in four or five of the suras that I've already covered into one package.

It includes a description of the Day of Judgment, hints at 'Ad and Thamud and Pharoah, covered the creation (gushing fluid put in a secure place and carried to term), the gnashing of unbeliever teeth, the special hell for the rich, yada yada yada.

The full text is here, since I'm skipping this one.
