    The sura opens with seven oaths sworn on various phenomena, the first of which is by the sun which is the primal source of energy, then on the human soul itself. It then describes the fate of the people of Thamud to whom Prophet Salih (pbuh) was sent. He urged them to worship Allah, and commanded them to preserve a certain she-camel; they disobeyed and continued to reject his message, and thus were all destroyed except for those who had followed Prophet Salih (pbuh). It brings out the fact that human beings must strive hard in order to remain pure.
