THIS NINE-SECTION chapter consists of 88 late Meccan verses, except for vv. 52-55 (in section (VI) which date from Madina. The whole chapter was revealed after The Ants 27 which immediately precedes it, and before The Night Journey 17, during the Transfer from Mecca to Madina in the year 0/622. The reader should gather all of these tales about Moses and the proud rich man, Quran (VIII), together, and try to understand them; they are similar to the comparisons found in Poets in Chapter 26. Moses previously appears in Midian in connection with the Burning Bush (I-IV), and we are once more shown God and His light in VII. The chapter ends with solace for Muhammad and believers, and relief for the Prophet's worries as they all contemplate God's face (IX). In the name of God, the Mercy-giving, the Merciful! (I)
