059 Al-Hashr

This is a Madni Surah and is also known as Surah Banu Nadhir, one of the Jewish tribes in Madina, as it relates their hostility against the Muslims and consequent expulsion from the city following their attempts to assassinate the Prophet ﷺ. 

The hypocrites showed support to them and incited them initially, but later betrayed them. They have been likened to Satan, who misguide and incited people to rebellion, but when the consequences are bad, he disassociates himself from them.

If the Qur’an was revealed upon a mountain, it would have crumbled with humility.

The surah concludes with enumerating some of the beautiful names of Allaah (SWT) in the last three verses.
