Surah Maidah Meaning

In this surah, the word Al-Maidah means ‘Spread of Table’. It is a well-known surah of the Quran. Because of Jesus’ supplication which is recounted in this Surah, in which he prayed for the arrival of heavenly food. Originally, an inside-a-tray-of-food tray is referred to as “Maidah” in Arabic. 

When Surah al Maida Revealed? 

Surah al Maidah was disclosed in Madina shortly after the treaty of Hudaibiyah. It is maybe towards the conclusion of the sixth or the start of the seventh century. This surah was revealed when the Prophet and 1400 other Muslims agreed to travel to Mecca in the year 6 A.H.

Reason of Revelation 

The Meccans did not allow them to enter the city. The companions of the Prophet were extremely angry. After the extensive dialogue, they agreed in a treaty that Muslims could visit the Kaaba the following year. This agreement allowed Muslims a chance to spread their message to nearby residents.

The Prophet’s companions initially perceived the treaty as their defeat. But it was a godsend in disguise because it not only provided them with protection from Meccan raids. But it also gave a chance to disseminate the Islamic message outside of Arabia.

Warnings for Christians and Jews

Jews’ influence in North Arabia was largely gone, and Muslims now controlled most of the Jews who still lived there. They received warnings for their improper conduct and were urged to maintain it.

It is fortunate to note that no direct invitation was extended to the disbelievers and Majusis residing in the neighbouring countries. For this reason, it was unnecessary to refer to them separately because the theory was already addressed by the term “mushrik Arabs.”
