it is recited
(is) the truth
1. Lessons/Guidance/Reflections/Gems[ edit ]
The Qur’ān is so clear that it needs only to be read out and these people who have had some experience of the truth know for certain that it comes from the same source. Thus, they are reassured, knowing that it comes from none other than God: “It is the truth from our Lord. Indeed, even before this have we submitted ourselves to Him.” Such submission to God is the central issue of every faith.

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.
