This sura was sent to the prophet in Madina. It discusses Muslim life lessons 101. It talks about behavior, modesty , with family and community.

Ask God in your Duaa for everything you want, write it down , and...

Then the disbelievers and the 4 points they say agains the messenger the Quran , but God tells us in verse 11 that the truth is ; they do not want to believe in theDay of...
