As discussed earlier, Surah-e-Dukhan was revealed in Makkah almost alongside Surah Ghafir, Fussilat, Shuraand Zakhuruf between the 4th to 7th years of Prophethood.

It is narrated by Masruq-bin-al-Ajda that Abdullah-bin-Masood said: The people of Makkah were denying every teaching of the Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم). One day Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) prayed to Allah to give these people the same punishment that the people of Hazrat Yusuf (عليه السلام) suffered from and so his prayer was accepted by Allah (سبحان و تعالىٰ) and the whole land suffered from famine.

Afterward, Cheifs of the Quraish came to the Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and requested him to pray to Allah (سبحان و تعالىٰ) to end this famine. This was the time when Surah-e-Dukhan was revealed. Surah Dukhan revealed that no one can avoid the punishment of Allah. However, in Surah Dukhan Ayat 54 to 59, the blessing of the worldly life and afterlife is revealed.

And also Abu Umamah said: “I have heard the Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) saying, “Whoever prays Surah Dukhan on the eve of Friday God makes for him a home in paradise.
