Tafseer of Soorah al-Hujarat
verses 1 to 3 | verses 4 to 7 | Verses 8 - 10
'Hujurat' is the plural form of the word, 'Hujrah' which literally means room. It was revealed in the ninth year after the Hijrah. [al-Baihaqee]
In the year of the delegation (eight year after the Hijrah), many desert tribes began sending representatives to the Prophet of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) to present their oath of allegiance and to accept Islam. These representatives were often crude and coarse in their conversations with the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). Thus, Allah revealed Soorah al-Hujurat as a guide to moral behaviors and etiquettes to Muslims.
Soorah al-Hujurat constitutes a set of moral ideas and general code of behavior for the Muslims and is therefore the essential foundation of a Muslim community.
