Translations:

- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)


The surah that mentions The Confederates of the unbelievers, who besieged Medina, with an overwhelming force, but whom God routed with winds and a sandstorm in what became known as the Battle of the Ditch (in reference to the digging of a wide trench around the city as a barrier to invasion, an unprecedented practice in Arabia) in AH 5/627 CE (verse 9ff.). It takes its name from verse 20 which refers to the campaign of the "confederates" (aḥzāb) against the Prophet. The believers dug a ditch, which the disbelievers were unable to cross, and eventually the enemy retreated in disarray. This is mentioned in order to remind the believers of God’s goodness to them, so that they may obey the numerous instructions given in the surah, starting with the regulation of adoption and including proper conduct towards the Prophet, his Ahl al-Bayt and his wives. The hypocrites are warned to stop their bad behaviour.
The surah is also known as The Allied Troops, The Coalition, The Confederate Tribes, The Confederaters, The Federated Clans, The Joint Forces

AL-AHZAB


يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَدْخُلُوا بُيُوتَ النَّبِيِّ إِلَّا أَنْ يُؤْذَنَ لَكُمْ إِلَىٰ طَعَامٍ غَيْرَ نَاظِرِينَ إِنَاهُ وَلَٰكِنْ إِذَا دُعِيتُمْ فَادْخُلُوا فَإِذَا طَعِمْتُمْ فَانْتَشِرُوا وَلَا مُسْتَأْنِسِينَ لِحَدِيثٍ ۚ إِنَّ ذَٰلِكُمْ كَانَ يُؤْذِي النَّبِيَّ فَيَسْتَحْيِي مِنْكُمْ ۖ وَاللَّهُ لَا يَسْتَحْيِي مِنَ الْحَقِّ ۚ وَإِذَا سَأَلْتُمُوهُنَّ مَتَاعًا فَاسْأَلُوهُنَّ مِنْ وَرَاءِ حِجَابٍ ۚ ذَٰلِكُمْ أَطْهَرُ لِقُلُوبِكُمْ وَقُلُوبِهِنَّ ۚ وَمَا كَانَ لَكُمْ أَنْ تُؤْذُوا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ وَلَا أَنْ تَنْكِحُوا أَزْوَاجَهُ مِنْ بَعْدِهِ أَبَدًا ۚ إِنَّ ذَٰلِكُمْ كَانَ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ عَظِيمًا ﴿٥٣﴾
٥٣ - مومنو پیغمبر کے گھروں میں نہ جایا کرو مگر اس صورت میں کہ تم کو کھانے کے لئے اجازت دی جائے اور اس کے پکنے کا انتظار بھی نہ کرنا پڑے۔ لیکن جب تمہاری دعوت کی جائے تو جاؤ اور جب کھانا کھاچکو تو چل دو اور باتوں میں جی لگا کر نہ بیٹھ رہو۔ یہ بات پیغمبر کو ایذا دیتی ہے۔ اور وہ تم سے شرم کرتے ہیں (اور کہتے نہیں ہیں) لیکن خدا سچی بات کے کہنے سے شرم نہیں کرتا۔ اور جب پیغمبروں کی بیویوں سے کوئی سامان مانگو تو پردے کے باہر مانگو۔ یہ تمہارے اور ان کے دونوں کے دلوں کے لئے بہت پاکیزگی کی بات ہے۔ اور تم کو یہ شایاں نہیں کہ پیغمبر خدا کو تکلیف دو اور نہ یہ کہ ان کی بیویوں سے کبھی ان کے بعد نکاح کرو۔ بےشک یہ خدا کے نزدیک بڑا (گناہ کا کام) ہے .
[33:53] O you who have believed, do not enter the houses of the Prophet except when you are permitted for a meal, without awaiting its readiness. But when you are invited, then enter; and when you have eaten, disperse without seeking to remain for conversation. Indeed, that [behavior] was troubling the Prophet, and he is shy of [dismissing] you. But Allah is not shy of the truth. And when you ask [his wives] for something, ask them from behind a partition. That is purer for your hearts and their hearts. And it is not [conceivable or lawful] for you to harm the Messenger of Allah or to marry his wives after him, ever. Indeed, that would be in the sight of Allah an enormity.
