Surah Al-Hashr is the 59th chapter of the Quran. It consists of 24 verses (ayat) and is a Madani surah, revealed in the city of Madinah after the Prophet Muhammad’s migration from Makkah.
The chapter is named “Al-Hashr,” which translates to “The Exile” or “The Gathering.” It primarily deals with events related to the expulsion of the Jewish tribe of Banu Nadir from Madinah due to their treacherous behavior. The surah also touches upon themes of faith, accountability, and community responsibility.
Surah Al-Hashr contains important lessons about the consequences of violating treaties and betraying one’s commitments. It also emphasizes the importance of supporting the Muslim community and working together for the greater good. The surah presents the concept of the “hypocrites” who outwardly appeared to be Muslims but secretly harbored ill intentions.
Throughout the surah, there is an underlying message of God’s sovereignty and control over events. It encourages believers to put their trust in God and to strive for righteousness in their actions. The surah serves as a reminder of the responsibilities and challenges faced by a community and the importance of upholding principles of justice, integrity, and unity.
