AL-ʿĀDIYĀT

The Chargers

العاديات

Meccan (surah 100 • 11 ayahs)

»The surah that opens with the mention of galloping war steeds that it calls THE CHARGERS, whose very hoofs strike sparks upon the rocky earth as they carry their riders furiously into the midst of the fray life. It takes its name from “the chargers” (al-ʿadiyāt) mentioned in verse 1. The surah touch upon Gods swearing by the warhorses He has subjected to man’s use that man is ungrateful and misguided.«

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH,

THE ALL-BENEFICENT, THE ALL-MERCIFUL.
