(The Clans) No. 33 (Revealed at Medina) 73 Verses in 9 Sections
Surah Azhab was revealed in Madinah and it has 73 ayaat. In the fifth year of Hijrah the Jews of Medina, pagans of Mecca, and the hypocrites hidden amongst the Muslims united to fight against the Muslims. Then the Prophet (S) and his followers dug a deep ditch around Medina to defend against their attack.
This battle was designed by different groups and thus it was called ‘The Battle of Clans’, and since the Muslims dug a ditch in order to defend themselves, this battle became known as ‘The Battle of Ditch’.
On the whole, seventeen verses of this Surah are about the Battle of clans, and since in verses 20 and 22, the Arabic word ’ahzab(the clans) is used for three times, this Surah was called Al-’Ahzab (the clans).
In addition to the explanation concerning the Battle of Clans, there are some other matter mentioned in this Surah about ‘injurious assimilation’, divorce in the Age of Ignorance, the ordinances of adoption (adopted son), the subject of veiling of women, and paying attention to Resurrection.
