The surah that mentions the names of sixteen of The Prophets and Mary, illustrating the unity of the divine message. Accounts of several prophets (anbiyāʾ) appear in this surah from verse 48 ff., hence its name. The surah stresses that fact that Muḥammad is a man like earlier prophets, and has been given the same message to declare the unity of God. It warns the disbelievers of the approaching Judgement from which there is no escape.

وَدَاوُودَ وَسُلَيْمَانَ إِذْ يَحْكُمَانِ فِي الْحَرْثِ إِذْ نَفَشَتْ فِيهِ غَنَمُ الْقَوْمِ وَكُنَّا لِحُكْمِهِمْ شَاهِدِينَ ﴿٧٨﴾
٧٨ - اور داؤد اور سلیمان (کا حال بھی سن لو کہ) جب وہ ایک کھیتی کا مقدمہ فیصلہ کرنے لگے جس میں کچھ لوگوں کی بکریاں رات کو چر گئی (اور اسے روند گئی) تھیں اور ہم ان کے فیصلے کے وقت موجود تھے .
[21:78] And [mention] David and Solomon, when they judged concerning the field - when the sheep of a people overran it [at night], and We were witness to their judgement.
