Sūrat al-Qaṣaṣ (Arabic: سورة القصص‎, "The Story") is the 28th sura of the Qur'an with 88 ayat.

According to Ibn Kathir's commentary, the Surah takes its name from verse 25 in which the word Al-Qasas occurs. Lexically, qasas means to relate events in their proper sequence. Thus, from the view- point of the meaning too, this word can be a suitable title for this Surah, for in it the detailed story of the Prophet Moses has been related.
