The Surah tells us that Allah’s Prophets suffered for the cause of truth. Their enemies tried to harm them, but then Allah helped his prophets and defeated their enemies. The Surah emphasizes that the true message must be presented under all circumstances. After the Prophets it is the duty of the Believers to convey the message of Allah to all people.
اور جنہوں نے برے کام کیے
 پھر اس کے بعد توبہ کرلی
 اور ایمان لے آئے
 تو کچھ شک نہیں کہ تمہارا پروردگار
 اس کے بعد (بخش دے گا کہ وہ)
 بخشنے والا مہربان ہے
