Marmaduke Pickthall, The Meaning of The Glorious Koran. An Explanatory Translation (1930)

SÛRAH CXII

At-Tauḥîd, “The Unity,” takes its name from its subject. It has been called the essence of the Koran, of which it is really the last Sûrah. Some authorities ascribe this Sûrah to the Madînah period, and think that it was revealed in answer to a question of some Jewish doctors concerning the nature of God.

It is generally held to be an early Meccan Sûrah.

The Unity

Revealed at Mecca

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

1. Say: He is Allah, the One!

2. Allah, the eternally Besought of all!

3. He begetteth not nor was begotten.

4. And there is none comparable unto Him.
