This is a Medinan surah, which means that it is mainly concerned with guidelines for maintaining a healthy community. In this regard, the surah gives three main commands:
1.) Do not shout at the prophet, but rather treat him with respect, with a lowered voice.
2.) Seek to reconcile community members who are fighting.
3.) Don't gossip about community members behind their backs.
