Verse 26 ff. of this surah relate the ḥajj pilgrimage, after which it is named. This theme is introduced by the condemnation of those who bar the believers from access to the Sacred Mosque and is followed by permission to fight when attacked. It begins with the Day of Judgement and castigates those who worship useless idols, describing them later as powerless to create even a fly. The surah ends by urging the Muslims to persevere in following the faith of Abraham.«
