Surah Al-Hashr (The Mustering)

This Surah was revealed in Madinah, and it has 24 verses and 3 sections

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most Merciful

The Merits of the Ansar (The Helpers)

"...And do not feel in their hearts any need for what is given to the former ones..." 59:9

COMMENTARY: The third characteristic of the Helpers is described in "...and do not feel in their hearts any need for what is given to the former ones [from fai'], ...[59:9]". This statement is concerned with the banishment of Banu Nadhir and their orchards and homes falling into Muslim hands.

Distribution of Banu Nadhir's Properties

As stated earlier, the relevant verse has given discretionary powers to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) in matters of distributing the Fai' property. It was a time when the Muhajirun (Emigrants) had neither homes of their own nor any property. They lived in the homes of the Ansar, and worked on their farms to earn their livelihood. When the wealth of Banu Nadhir and Banu Qainuqa' were obtained as Fai', the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) called the leader of the Ansar, Sayyidna Thabit Ibn Qais Ibn Shammas, and asked him to bring his people to him. He asked: "O Messenger of Allah, should I call my tribe of the Ansar, Banu Khazraj, or all of the tribes of the Ansar?" He replied: "All of them." They all gathered. The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) delivered a sermon in which he spoke highly of the Ansar as to the manner in which they accommodated the Refugee brethren. He said it was a work of great determination and courage. After that he said: 'Allah has granted you the wealth of Banu Nadhir. If you wish, I will divide the wealth between the Muhajirin and the Ansar; and the Refugees will remain as usual in the homes of the Ansar. Or if you wish, the wealth may be distributed among the homeless Refugees; and they may move out of your homes and settle in their own homes.'

Having heard this sermon, two of the great chiefs of the Ansar, Sayyidna Sa'd Ibn 'Ubadah and Sa'd Ibn Mu'adh RA - stood and said: "O Messenger of Allah, we are of the view that the entire wealth of Fai' be distributed among the Refugee brethren, and in addition they may continue to reside in our homes as usual." At this all the Ansar unanimously said, "We concur with this decision and are happy with it." On that occasion, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) supplicated for the Ansar and their children. He then distributed the entire Fai' among the Muhajirun. Only two of the Ansar received a grant from the Fai', because they were very poor. Their names are Sayyidna Sahl Ibn Hunaif and Abu Dujanah.

The verse means 'Whatever the Muhajirin were granted in this distribution, the Ansaar happily accepted it as if they had no need for any of those items. It was inconceivable that they would complain about it enviously.' When Bahrain was conquered, the same spirit of self-sacrifice was displayed again by the Ansaar. The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) expressed his intention to distribute the entire conquered lands of that territory among the Ansaar, but they courteously refused to accept any share of it unless a similar share was granted to the Muhajirun.

A man pacing back and forth glanced at his watch and yelled upstairs to his wife, "Honey, are you ready yet?"

Shouting back, the woman replies, "For crying out loud, Dewey, I've been telling you for the last half hour... I'll be ready in a minute!"
