Surah yaseen is the 36th chapter of the Qur'an with 83 ayat, and is one of the Meccan surah, although some scholars maintain that verse 12 is from the Madinan period. The name of the chapter comes from the two letters of the first verse of the chapter, which has caused much scholarly debate, and which Tafsir al-Jalalayn, a Sunni Tafsir, interprets by saying "Allah knows best what He means by these." Yā Sīn is also one of the names of the Prophet Muhammad, as reported in a saying of ʿAlī ibn Abī Ṭālib: “I heard the Messenger of God say, ‘Verily God has named me by seven names in the Quran: Muhammad [3:144; 33:40; 47:2; 48:29], Ahmad [61:6], Tā Hā [20:1], Yā Sīn [36:1], thou enwrapped [al-Muzammil; 73:1], thou who art covered [al-Mudaththir; 74:1], and servant of God [ʿAbd Allāh; 72:19]’”
The sura focuses on establishing the Qur'an as a divine source, and it warns of the fate of those that mock Allah's revelations and are stubborn. The sura tells of the punishments that plagued past generations of nonbelievers as a warning to present and future generations. Additionally, the sura reiterates Allah's sovereignty as exemplified by His creations through signs from nature.
