Surat Al-Mujādila - The Pleading Woman

  • filter_vintage

    Period of Revelation            There is no tradition to indicate when this incident of pleading and arguing (Mujaadalah) took place, but there is a hint in the subject matter of the Surah on the basis of which it can be said with certainty that it happened after the battle of the Trench (Shawwaal, 5 A. H.).  In Surah Al-Ahzaab, Allah while negating that an adopted son could be one’s real son, had just said; “And Allah has not made those of your wives, whom you divorce by Zihaar, your mothers.” But in that Surah divorcing a wife through Zihaar (calling one’s wife as one’s mother) was not declared to be a sin or a crime, and no legal injunction was imposed concerning it. Contrary to it, in this Surah the whole law relating to Zihaar has been enacted, which shows that these detailed injunctions were revealed after a brief reference relating to this issue in Surah Al-Ahzaab. Major Issues, Divine Laws and Guidance:

    • Pagans practice of divorce through ‘Zihaar (calling one’s wife as one’s mother)’ is prohibited.
    • Penalty for practicing ‘Zihaar’.
    • Allah is omnipresent, if three persons converse in secret, he is fourth of them.
    • Secret counsels are forbidden except about virtue and piety.
    • Conspiring in secret is the work of Shaitaan.
    • Ettiquettes of holding a meeting.
    • Order to spend in charity before consulting the Rasool in private.
    • Those who befriend those who are under the wrath of Allah will be severely punished.
    • True believers do not befriend those who oppose Allah and His Rasool.
    In this Surah instructions have been given to the Muslims about the different problems that confronted them at that time. From the beginning of the Surah to verse 6 legal injunctions about Zihaar are given. The Muslims are strictly warned that they should not persist in the practices of ignorance after they have accepted Islam.

    In vv. 7-10 the hypocrites are taken to task for their secret consultations by which they conspired against the “Prophet (peace be upon him), and because of their hidden malice and grudge they used to greet him, like the Jews, in a manner as to wish him ill instead of well. In this connection, the muslims are consoled: “ These secret consultation of the hypocrites can do no harm to you: therefore, you should go on doing your duty with full trust in Allah”. Besides, they are also taught: “The true believers, when they talk secretly together, should not talk of sin and transgression or disobedience to the Prophet , if they have to talk secretly together they should talk of goodness and piety.”
