Assalamu Alikum I had this note in my book for a long time and I finaly got to ask about it. On page 135 of this book there are verses from surah al masad. However, it is written Lahab:1-5. Is Lahab another name for this surah?

It can be. Because in page 131 there it says surat Mu'men, which doesnt really exist in the Quran being printed by most countries, and Sheikh Yasser Birjas said it is another name for Surat Ghafir.

So Surat Ghafir = Surat Mu'min
Maybe surat Lahab = Al-Masad. WAllahu 'alam.

Yes, Surah Lahab is another name for Masad.
And Surah Mu'min is another name for Ghafir.
I actually grew up learning the names of the surahs as Lahab and Mu'min...
I don't know why this is so though... I guess they have two names, and the people who print the Qurans choose which ever one...
