About this Surah:
In this Surah, Allah is directly communicating with the Prophet (ﷺ). This was an early Meccan Surah so it was in the early stages of Prophethood where Muhammad (ﷺ) was under a lot of stress and anxiety. He experienced mockery and ridicule from his personal friends, clansmen, and neighbors because they were not receptive to his message. During this time he also felt that Allah had abandoned him. Allah knew better and was giving him a break since if he “had continuously been exposed to the intensely bright light of Revelation (Wahy) [his] nerves could not have endured it. Therefore, an interval was given in order to afford [him] peace and tranquility.” Allah sent down this Surah to comfort him and let him know he had not forgotten him.

Narrated Ibn Umar: Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "The example of the person who knows the Qur'an by heart is like the owner of tied camels. If he keeps them tied, he will control them, but if he releases them, they will run away."
