There has come the biography of some prophets in this Surah, such as Moses, Abraham, Noah, Lut, Salih, Hud, and Shu‘ayb (Jethro), as well as the pertinacious conflicts of people against them.
At the end of each biography of these prophets, the Qur’an says:
“Verily in that there is a sign, but most of them do not believe.”
“And verily, your Lord certainly is He, the Mighty, the Merciful.”
And, therefore, this verse has been repeated eight times in order to sooth the Prophet of Islam (S)and to tell him not to be afraid of the pertinacity of the people of Mecca since all prophets had encountered some people like them.
