Surah Lahab (ٱلمَسَد) is the 111th Surah of the Qur’an. Also commonly referred to as Surah Masad. The Surah is quite short as it consists of only 5 ayat.
This surah is sometimes referred to as Surah Lahab because it is about Abu Lahab, Prophet Muhammad’s paternal uncle.
Abu Lahab was one of the Meccan Quraysh leaders who staunchly opposed Prophet Muhammad (saws) and his followers. This surah condemns him for his stance on antagonizing Islam.
