In this Surah the people have been made to understand the meaninglessness and absurdity of polytheism (Shirk) and the truth and reasonableness of Monotheism (Tawhid). They have been invited to give up blind imitation of their forefathers, consider with a cool mind the teachings which the Prophet Muhammad is presenting from the Lord of the worlds. To see with open eyes the manifest signs found in the universe around them and in their own selves which bear evidence to its truth.

Period of Revelation [ edit ] Last edited: 04/03/2016

An examination of the subject matter shows that it was sent down in the period when persecution to suppress and thwart the invitation to Islam had begun. Every sort of plotting had started being employed for this purpose. This is borne out by v.14 in which the young reverts to Islam have been told that although the rights of the parents are the uppermost after God they should not listen to them if they prevented them from accepting Islam or compelled them to revert to the creed of polytheism (Shirk). The same thing has been said in Surah 29: al-‘Ankabut (The Spider) which indicates that both these Surahs were sent down in the same period. A study of the style and subject matter of the two Surahs on the whole however shows that Surah Luqman was sent down earlier for one does not see any sign of the antagonism in its background, though contrary to this while studying Surah 29: al-‘Ankabut (The Spider) one can clearly feel that the Muslims were being severely persecuted during the period of its revelation.
