The Madinan Society: A Tafsir of Surat al-Hujurat Part 2

The Madīnan Society: A Tafsīr of Sūrat al-Ḥujurāt Part 2/12
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 second lesson details the lapse that occurred between Abu Bakr and Umar in front of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ. Their disagreement escalated into an argument which lead to verses of the Qur’an being revealed about their behaviour. These verses were not just exclusive to them, but they can be applied to anyone in the presence of the Prophet ﷺ.

The lesson then continues by explaining the respect the Sahabah had before the Prophet ﷺ and how observing respect to bearers of ilm (knowledge) and gatherings of ilm is not an act of servility, but rather an essential component to ensure the knowledge penetrates our hearts.

Below are some of the timecodes and topics relating to this talk:
