Book: The Qur'an

Chapter: 28. The Story

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.43760


This sūra is devoted almost entirely to the story of Moses, featuring accounts of his childhood and early life, his call to be a messenger, and finally his struggles with Pharaoh (with a later addendum on the story of Qārūn/Korah). It concludes with three scenes of judgment and a final word of encouragement to the Prophet. Q28 receives its title from ‘the story’ Moses recounts at Q28.25.
