The Madinan Society: A Tafsir of Surat al-Hujurat Part 1

The Madīnan Society: A Tafsīr of Sūrat al-Ḥujurāt Part 1/12
Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on 15th April 2016 at Al Kawthar Academy, Leicester (UK)

After the Prophet ﷺ and his companions emigrated to Medina, Allah revealed laws with which Muslims must abide by so that they may live together peacefully. This Sūrat serves as a prime example of such intricate laws that detail not just how people should behave with one another, but how they should speak and think about each other.

This lecture forms the first lesson in the commentary of Sūrat al-Hujurāt (The Chambers), dealing with the etiquettes that should be observed before Rasulullah ﷺ. There are events which lead to the revelation of these verses and Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq will expound upon the stories and various narrations which coincide with these verses. The respect and etiquette shown to Rasulullah ﷺ during his life can still be applied today when studying his words. The consequences of a lack of respect are also highlighted in this talk.
