Surah al-Qamar (The Moon ) 54 : 36
1. Lessons/Guidance/Reflections/Gems[ edit ]
The story is thus told from both ends: the unbelievers' initial rejection of the truth and their ultimate punishment. Then the surah provides us with some further details. Again, this is one of the methods the Qur'an uses in its narratives to emphasize certain ideas.
The details given here are: "He warned them of Our punishment, but they were in doubt about his warnings. They even asked him to hand his guests over to them, so We sealed their eyes. Taste, then, My punishment and [the fillfilment oil My warnings.' At daybreak abiding suffering befell them." (Verses 36-38) Lot took much pain in warning his people against the perverted indecency they used to practise, but they doubted all his warnings, circulating their doubts among themselves. They argued with him, disputing what he said.

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.
