»The surah that opens with the discrete Arabic letters Ṭā Hā. Like “Yā Sīn” (surah 36), “Ṭā Hā” is said to be one of the names of the Prophet Muḥammad. The surah both begins and ends with mention of the Quran: it was not sent to the Prophet to cause him grief but is a clear proof from his Lord. The example of Moses is given as a lengthy account in order to encourage the Prophet and show the end of the disbelievers. The destruction of earlier generations is cited as a lesson from which the disbelievers should learn. The Prophet is ordered to be patient and to persevere with his worship.«
