33. SURAH -AL AHZAB (“The Confederates”) by Shaikh Maher Al Muaiqly


Al-Ahzab (“The Clans, The Coalition, The Combined Forces”) is the 33rd chapter (surah) of the Qur’an with 73 verses (ayat). The Surah takes its name from the mention of the parties (al-aḥzab), or confederates (an alliance among the Quraysh and other tribes), who fought the Muslims at the Battle of the Trench (5/627), also known as the Battle of the Parties and as the Siege of Madinah.
