Revelation time:

This surah was revealed in 616-618 AD. When Abu Lahab, one of Abdul Muttalib’s descendants, crossed all the limits of his aggression.

Story of surah Lahab:

It is narrated from Ibn Abbas that when the verse:

“And admonish the near relatives.”

was revealed, the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, was commanded by Allah to gather his close relatives and announce the invitation to Islam for the first time, and that he is the Messenger of Allah. Then he (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) climbed to the top of Mount Safa and called: Ya Sabaha. (This phrase was used to tell all people to prepare to defend themselves when an enemy was about to attack.)

When people heard Muhammad’s call, they went to him. He addressed various Arab tribes by name and asked: “If I tell you that there is a large army of the enemy lying at the foot of this mountain on the other side, will you believe me?”

The entire assembly unanimously said:

“Of course we will believe because you have never lied.”


The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said:

“I have come as a warner from Allah to preach the monotheism of the Lord”.

Hearing this, Abu Lahab said:

“Perdition to thee! Is that why you gathered us?”

At that time this Surah was revealed:

“May the hands of Abu Lahab perish, may he (himself) perish.”

The threat and enmity of Abu Lahab and his wife was not limited to this act. They were the worst people of the time and the most habitual enemies of early Islam. This is why the Quran clearly condemns them.
