The summary/theme of the surah Al-Masad

Sūrah al-Masad, also known as Sūrah al-Lahab, is an early Makkan Sūrah focused on the topic of the fate in the Hereafter life of Abū Lahab and his wife. This Sūrah is very short yer sends a strong message and was revealed at the start of Islamic History after an incident in which Abū Lahab insulted the Prophet (peace be upon him)

Lesson learned from the surah Al-Masad

  1. Never cause grief to someone involved in the work of Allāh.  
  2. Wealth and power are worthless if your actions do not please Allāh.  
  3. Assisting someone in opposing the people of Allāh is also blameworthy.  
  4. How grave must the actions of Abū Lahab have been for Allāh to reveal a whole sūrah in his condemnation, to be read by all until the Day of Judgement? May Allāh protect us from similar outcomes.
