And he was arrogant
and his hosts
and they thought
will be returned
1. Lessons/Guidance/Reflections/Gems[ edit ]
It is at this point in the exchange that the match with the sorcerers takes place, though it is not mentioned here. The sūrah instead proceeds straight to how Pharaoh met his end. Given they thought they would never return, they behaved arrogantly, against all right, denying God’s signs and warnings.

7. Period of Revelation[ edit ]
According to Ibn Abbas (a great companion of the Prophet) the Surah 26: ash-Shu’ara’ (The Poets), Surah 27: an-Naml (The Ants) and Surah 28: al-Qasas (The Story) were sent down one after the other. The language, the style and the theme also show that the period of the revelation of these three Surahs is nearly the same. Another reason for their close resemblance is that the different parts of the story of Prophet Moses are mentioned in these Surahs together to make up a complete story.
