This Surah was revealed in Makkah and contains 135 ayahs. This Surah mentions the story of Musa alaihissalam which contains countless lessons, monitions and words of advice. It also includes a reminder about the Resurrection and the Day of Judgment and special advice and guidance for the Ummah through the Blessed Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. The scholars disagree about the name of this Surah.
- Some are of the opinion that Ta-Ha are from isolated letters
- Some say it is in the meaning of “O man” or “O human”
- Some say it is one of the names of the Blessed Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam
Some ahadith narrate that the Blessed Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, “The ism al-azam (most exalted names) of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala are in these three Surahs: al-Baqarah, al-Imran and Ta-ha.” The angels became envious of the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam for gaining the honor of reciting this Surah.
