Sura Hashr (59) 09/10/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Surah 59 (Hashr)

Banishment of the Banu Nadir

Verse 2: It is He Who got out the Unbelievers among the People of the Book from their homes at the first gathering (of the forces). Little did ye think that they would get out: and they thought that their fortresses would defend them from Allah! But the (Wrath of) Allah came to them from quarters from which they little expected (it), and cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their dwellings by their own hands and the hands of the Believers. Take warning, then, o ye with eyes (to see)!

The Banu Nadir tribe were inhabitants of Madinah before the Prophet ( SAW ) became the leader. When the Prophet (SAW) became the leader, they entered into an agreement with him to defend and protect the newly formed state of Madinah. However, due to their treachery after the battle of Uhud, they were expelled from Madinah.
