Surah al-Qamar (The Moon ) 54 : 33
1. Lessons/Guidance/Reflections/Gems[ edit ]
The story of Lot's people is given in detail elsewhere in the Qur'an. Its mention here is not intended to provide details, but rather to draw a lesson from what happens when people deny the truth and to remind them of the severe punishment that they may suffer. Hence, it starts with reporting their rejection of God's warning, followed by mentioning the punishment they suffered in consequence: "Lot's people also rejected [My] warnings."

7. Period of Revelation[ edit ]
The incident of the ‘splitting of the moon’ (shaqq-al-Qamar) that has been mentioned in this Surah, determines its period of revelation precisely. The traditionists and commentators are agreed that this incident took place at Mina in Makkah about five years before the Prophet’s migration (Hijra) to Madīnah.
