Sura CVI — The Koreisch

by Rev. G. Margoliouth, M.A.

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.[62]



[62] 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.
