The name of the sura (takweer) is derived from the word ‘kuwwirat’ from the first verse.

The first six verses of the sura talk about incidents that occur before the Last Day. Among those it is mentioned that human beings would ignore all those things that they hold dear.

Prophet Muhammad (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) said ‘one who wants to know about the Day of Judgement as if he/she has seen it with his/her own eyes should read these 3 surahs; at-Takweer, al-Infitar, and Inshiqaq
