AL-MUDDASSIR المدثر
Lit. “The Enwrapped.” The title of the LXXIVth Surah of the Qur’an, in the first verse of which the word occurs. “O Thou, enwrapped in thy mantle, arise and preach.” This is considered by some to be the earliest Surah in the Qur’an, but others think it was the xcvith. [MUHAMMAD.]
