              Name

              The Surah takes its name from the word Lahab in the first verse.

              Period of Revelation

              Although the commentators have not disputed its being a Makki Surah, yet it is difficult to determine in which phase of the life at Makkah precisely it was revealed. However, in view of Abu Lahab's role and conduct against the Holy Prophet's message of Truth, it can be assumed that it must have been revealed in the period when he had transgressed all limits in his mad hostility to him, and his attitude was becoming a serious obstruction in the progress of Islam. It may well have been revealed in the period when the Quraish had boycotted the Holy Prophet (upon whom be peace) together with the people of his clan and besieged them in Shi'b Abi Talib, and Abu Lahab was the only person to join with the enemies against his own relatives. The basis of this assumption is that Abu Lahab was the Holy Prophet's uncle, and public condemnation of the uncle by the tongue of the nephew could not be proper until the extreme excesses committed by the uncle had become visible to everyone. If the Surah had been revealed before this, in the very beginning, the people would have regarded it as morally discourteous that the nephew should so condemn the uncle.

              Background

              This is the only place in the Quran where a person from among the enemies of Islam has been condemned by name, whereas in Makkah as well as in Madinah, after the migration, there were many people who were in no way less inimical to Islam and the Prophet Muhammad (upon whom be Allah's peace and blessings) than Abu Lahab. The question is, what was the special trait of the character of this person, which became the basis of this condemnation by name? To understand that it is necessary that one should understand the Arabian society of that time and the role that Abu Lahab played in it.

              In ancient days since there prevailed chaos and confusion, bloodshed and plunder throughout Arabia, and the condition for centuries was that a person could have no guarantee of the protection of life, honor and property except with the help and support of his clansmen and blood relations, therefore silah rehmi (good treatment of the kindred) was esteemed most highly among the moral values of the Arabian society and breaking off of connections with the kindred was regarded as a great sin. Under, the influence of the same Arabian tradition when the Holy Prophet (upon whom be peace) began to preach the message of Islam, the other clans of Quraish and their chiefs resisted and opposed him tooth and nail, but the Bani Hashim and the Bani al-Muttalib (children of al-Muttalib, brother of Hashim) not only did not oppose him but continued to support him openly, although most of them had not yet believed in his Prophethood. The other clans of Quraish themselves regarded this support by the blood relations of the Holy Prophet as perfectly in accordance with the moral traditions of Arabia. That is why they never taunted the Bani Hashim and the Bani al-Muttalib in that they had abandoned their ancestral faith by supporting a person who was preaching a new faith. They knew and believed that they could in no case hand over an individual of their clan to his enemies, and their support and aid of a clansman was perfectly natural in the sight of the Quraish and the people of Arabia.

              This moral principle, which the Arabs even in the pre-Islamic days of ignorance, regarded as worthy of respect and inviolable was broken only by one man in his enmity of Islam, and that was Abu Lahab, son of Abdul Muttalib. He was an uncle of the Holy Prophet, whose father and he were sons of the same father. In Arabia, an uncle represented the father especially when the nephew was fatherless. The uncle was expected to look after the nephew as one of his own children. But this man in his hostility to Islam and love of kufr trampled all the Arab traditions under foot.

              The traditionists have related from Ibn Abbas with several chains of transmitters the tradition that when the Holy Prophet was commanded to present the message of Islam openly, and he was instructed in the Quran to warn first of all his nearest kinsfolk of the punishment of God, he ascended the Mount, Safa one morning and called out aloud: Ya sabahah (O, the calamity of the morning!). This alarm in Arabia was raised by the person who noticed early at dawn an enemy tribe advancing against his tribe. When the Holy Messenger made this call, the people inquired as to who had made the call. They were told that it was Muhammad (upon whom be Allah's peace). There the people of all the clans of Quraish rushed out. Everyone who could, came. He who could not, sent another one for himself. When the People had assembled, the Holy Messenger calling out each clan by name, viz. O Bani Hashim, O Bani Abdul Muttalib, O Bani Fihr, O Bani so and so, said: "If I were to tell you that behind the hill there was an enemy host ready to fall upon you, would you believe me?" The people responded with one voice, saying that they never had so far experienced a lie from him. The Holy Prophet said: "Then I warn you that you are heading for a torment." Thereupon, before anyone else could speak, Abu Lahab, the Holy Prophet's uncle, said: "May you perish! Did you summon us for this?"Another tradition adds that he picked up a stone to throw at the Holy Prophet. (Musnad Ahmad, Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi, Ibn Jarir, and others).

              According to Ibn Zaid, one day Abu Lahab asked the Holy Prophet: "If I were to accept your religion, what would I get?" The Holy Prophet replied: "You would get what the other believers would get." He said: "Is there no preference or distinction for me?" The Holy Prophet replied: "What else do you want?" Thereupon he said: "May this religion perish in which I and all other people should be equal and alike!" (Ibn Jarir).

                    u know the first one posted on this page is disputing tht its a makkan surah, i feel confused abt tht point a bit as i double checked the 12 surahs of ikhtilaf cs i thought its not mentioned, and it isnt...
                    so is this a very minority view? i think so right & nearly all the concensous is tht its one of the earliest makkan surahs..

                    :scratch:
                    Yeah I think this is the view of this person only which would make it a very minority view. If you read through the bio they give for him on the site then you'd see that he has quite a... "unique" way of doing his tafsir. Seems like he's developed his own new methodology.


                    I think it's safe to say that this is Makkan surah because that it was what the majority of the classical sources say. Also the style of it is very much like the Makkan surahs.
                    "And thus have We willed you to be a community of the middle way."

                          تَبَّتْ يَدَا أَبِي لَهَبٍ وَتَب


                          Some of the different interpretations given for the word "tabbat" are that it means:
                          • khasirat: to lose; to get lost; to perish. (Qatadah)
                          • khaabat: to fail; to be frustrated, disappointed; to go wrong. (ibn 'Abbas)
                          • dallat: to lose one's way, go astray; to err. ('Ata)
                          • halakat: to perish; to die; to be annihilated, wiped out, destroyed. (ibn Jubair)
                          • to be devoid of every information (?) [khabar]. (Yaman bin Ri'ab)


                          al-Asma'i relates from Abu 'Amr bin al-'Ala that when 'Uthman rahimahullah was killed, part of what the people said was that may they (i.e. the killers) perish for what they have done and they singled out the hands for this. This is because the actions of the hands are more prominent.


                          And it is said that what is meant by hands is himself [nafsuhu]. The self is designated by the hands. As Allah ta'ala has said, "Bimaa qaddamat yadaak - For what your hands have sent forward (al-Hajj: 10)" i.e. yourself [nafsak]. And this is the way [mahya'] of the speech of the Arabs - you designate the whole of something by part of it.


                          "Wa tabb." al-Farra' said, "The first tabb is a request [dua] and the second is a statement [khabr]." As it is said, "May Allah destroy him; and he was destroyed [Ahlakahu Allahu wa qad halaka]."

                          In the recitation [qira'ah] of ('Abdullah) ibn Mas'ud and Ubayy (ibn Ka'b) it is, "Wa qad tabb."


                          Abu Lahab's name was 'Abd al-'Uzza and he was the son of 'Abd al-Muttalib; the paternal uncle ['amm] of the Prophet :saw:. His wife was the one-eyed ['awraa'] Umm Jamil, the sister of Abu Sufyan bin Harb. And the two of them were severe in their enmity towards the Prophet :saw:

                          Tariq bin 'Abdullah said, "I was at a market which had many corridors, when I came by a person saying, 'O people, Say "Laa ilaaha illa Allah" and you be will be successful.'" There was a man following him, stoning him - he had caused his thighs [saaqaih] and Achilles tendons ['urqoobaih] to bleed - and he was saying, "O people, indeed he is a great liar [kadh-dhaab] so do not believe him". I said, "Who is this?" They replied, "Muhammad. He believes that he is a Prophet. And this is his uncle Abu Lahab. He believes that he is a liar."

                          'Ata and ibn 'Abbas relate that Abu Lahab said, "Muhammad has bewitched [sahara] you. Indeed, one of us would eat al-jadha'ah (a type of cattle of a certain age) and drink the 'uss (big glass) of milk but it would not satisfy his appetite. But indeed, Muhammad has satisfied your appetite from the leg of a young sheep [shaah] and quenched your thirst from the 'uss of milk."


                          (al-Jami' li Ahkam al-Qur'an)
                          "And thus have We willed you to be a community of the middle way."
                          (al-Baqarah: 143)

                          Allahumma innaa na'udhu bika min an nushrika bika shai-an na'lamuh; wa nastaghfiruka limaa laa na'lam.

                            Yeah, I think it is literal because the word used to describe her is the same as is used to describe Dajjal (except in the feminine form).
