1. Lessons/Guidance/Reflections/Gems[ edit ]
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was not present at this meeting so as to know all its details as outlined in the Qur’ān. Indeed, several centuries and many human generations separated him from it.
The Qur’ān also speaks of Madyan and Moses’ sojourn there. Yet the Prophet was never at Madyan and it is only the Qur’ān that provides him with such detailed information. It is God who chooses His messengers. It is also He who gives them information about past nations and communities.

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.
