CHAPTER 22 - SURAH HAJJ
 
with Ustadh Hafiz Abdullah Muhammad*

Date: Tuesday 29th May 2012
Time: 6pm - 9pm
Venue: Idea Store Canary Wharf, Churchill Place,
Canary Wharf, London E14 5RB

Surah Hajj is the 22nd Chapter of the Quran and was revealed towards
the end of the Prophet’s Mission in Makkah. Due to this chapter
being revealed at this stage, Surah Hajj contains characteristics
of both Makkan and Madinan Sürahs. From the style of the Surah,
it appears that a part of it (vv. 1-24) was sent down in the last
stage of the Prophet’s residence at Makkah, shortly before the
migration. The rest (vv. 25-78) of the Surah was revealed after
migration, most probably in the month of Dhul-Hijjah, during the
first year of his residence at Madinah. The beginning of the Surah
addresses all mankind to fear their Lord and reminds them of the
Resurrection- common Makkan themes. Later in the Surah, the history
of Hajj is related and permission is granted for Jihad- both of
which are Madinan themes.

In this session of the monthly Journey Through the
Qur’an series, we will examine the history, structure
and guidance provided in this Surah and its
contemporary relevance.
