Shu'ara is the 26th surah in the Qur'an. The name shuara means "poets". It talks about various prophets and their tribes. Also how the disbelievers were destroyed after threatening prophets with death. It also talks about the mercy of Allah (God). This surah starts with the story of Moses, followed by that of Abraham.
Regarding the timing and contextual background of the supposed revelation (asbāb al-nuzūl), it is an earlier "Meccan surah", which means it is believed to have been revealed in Mecca, instead of later in Medina.
