MECCA.--4 Verses

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful
For the union of the KOREISCH:--
Their union in equipping caravans winter and summer.
And let them worship the Lord of this house, who hath provided them with food against hunger,
And secured them against alarm. 1


1 In allusion to the ancient inviolability of the Haram, or precinct round Mecca. See Sura, xcv. n. p. 41. This Sura, therefore, like the preceding, is a brief appeal to the Meccans on the ground of their peculiar privileges.

Next: Sura XCVII.--Power [XXI.]
