Nouman Ali Khan – Tafseer Of Surah At Tahreem

Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan goes into an in-depth analysis and Tafseer of Ayats 1 to 3 makeup section 1 of Surah At Tahreem.

“O Prophet, why do you prohibit [yourself from] what Allah has made lawful for you, seeking the approval of your wives? And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Allah has already ordained for you [Muslims] the dissolution of your oaths. And Allah is your protector, and He is the Knowing, the Wise. And [remember] when the Prophet confided to one of his wives a statement; and when she informed [another] of it and Allah showed it to him, he made known part of it and ignored apart. And when he informed her about it, she said, “Who told you this?” He said, “I was informed by the Knowing, the Acquainted.”

There is a sensitivity and respect in the Qur’an when the Noble Prophet ﷺ is addressed and this shows his nobility and honour granted and afforded to him. Hence, when Prophet ﷺ is talked about, it is said – Ya Ayyuhannabiyyu and similar connotations.

The love and zeal of obeying the Prophet ﷺ based on Hadith without listening to the backstory behind the Hadith can tend to very wrong ramifications. Hence, words of the Prophet ﷺ should not be spread carelessly without going in-depth into it.
