»The surah that admonishes the first recipients of the Quran, the Meccan tribe of QURAYSH, to give thanks to the One God alone who had long bequeathed to them, in their desert surroundings, abundant provision and security. It takes its name from verse 1, which mentions the Quraysh, the tribe to which the Prophet Muḥammad belonged.«
