Surat-ul-Quraysh

In this Makkan surah, the Quraysh (people of Makkah) are ordered to worship Allah because of the favors he bestowed upon them. These favors are of two types: security from harm as mentioned in the previous surah, and an abundant provision of food despite the fact that they live in a barren land. The Quraysh get to enjoy many kinds of goods resulting from their safe business trips to Yemen and Syria. Furthermore, people from other areas looked to them with either love and admiration for being the custodians of Al Ka'bah or fear because of the incident mentioned in the previous surah. Thus they should worship Allah alone, the Lord of Al Ka'bah and the only source of these favors.
