059 – Al Hashr – The Banishment

The sura begins with the expulsion of the Jewish clan called the Banu-Nadir who lived three miles outside of Madina. It follows with instructions of how to distribute the booty resulting from the campaign in which they had been defeated. In the final section, there is a graphic description of how, if the Qurʼan should descend on to a mountain it would crumble.
