The surah ends with a promise from Allah that He will forgive those who repent and follow His guidance.
Ala is the 85th chapter of the Quran. It was revealed in Medina and it has 42 verses. The word “Ala” means “Most High”.
This chapter is a call to Allah to be grateful for His blessings and to live a life of obedience.
The Surah al-A`la (Arabic: سورة الأعلى, “The Most High”) is the 87th chapter (surah) of the Qur’an with 19 verses (ayat). It is a Meccan sura. The title, “The Most High”, refers to God.
This chapter was revealed in Mecca. This surah has been called the “heart” of the Qur’an. Ibn Abbas said that this surah was equal to one third of the Qur’an.
Abu Huraira reported that Muhammad said, “If someone recites Surat al-A`la in his prayers during nightfall or dawn, it will be sufficient for him.” In general, commentators agree that this surah deals with three main topics: tawhid (the Oneness of God), prophecy and eschatology (the Hereafter). However, there is some dispute over which verses belong to which topic.
For example, verses 1-5 are sometimes seen as dealing with tawhid while others see them as focusing on prophecy; and verses 15-19 are sometimes classified as eschatological while others believe they reaffirm tawhid. In addition, some commentators believe that all three topics are present in every verse while others argue that each verse focuses on only one topic.
