Al-Hashr (Arabic: سورة الحشر, "The Exile") is the 59th chapter (sura) of the Qur'an and has 24 verses. The chapter is named al-hashr because the word hashr, meaning 'exile' or 'banishment', appears in verse 2, describing the expulsion of Jewish Banu Nadir tribe from their settlements. The surah features Fifteen attributes of God in the last three verses. A similitude is given in verse 21. Verse 6 may be related to the controversies of the land of Fadak.
