AN EXPLANATION OF SURAH AL-NISA: THE WOMEN (CHAPTER 4)

with Ustadh Hafiz Abdullah Muhammad*

Date: Tuesday 28th September 2010
Time: 6pm - 9pm
Venue: Idea Store Canary Wharf, Churchill Place,
Canary Wharf, London E14 5RB

Surah al-Nisa is the 4th chapter of the Qur’an that was revealed in
Madinah after the Battle of Uhud in 3 AH.  Whilst the 3rd chapter
demonstrated steadfastness in religion through the wife and daughter
of Imran, the main theme of Surah al-Nisa is the building of a strong
Muslim society particularly in reference to granting women their God-given
rights to fulfil their true roles in society.  Surah al-Nisa extensively
deals with women and their rights and obligations more than any other
chapters and, in the context of 7th century Arabia, brought up the true
emancipation of women.

Surah al-Nisa dealt with various social problems faced by Muslims following
the loss of lives at the Battle of Uhud such as addressing the need of orphans
and widows in the context of marriage and inheritance laws.  It also dealt with
matters relating to political tensions that the Madinan Muslim community faced
with sections of the Jews and the Hypocrites.  Other topics discussed in this
Surah include whole-hearted acceptance of the Prophet’s decision by believers,
rules regarding prayers, standing firm for justice, characteristics of Hypocrites,
rejection of the Christian belief in Trinity and declaration that Jesus was
neither killed nor crucified.

In this 5th session of the monthly Journey Through the Qur’an series, we will
examine the history, structure and guidance provided in Surah al-Nisa and
their contemporary relevance.
