سورة التوبة

9. At-Taubah


Total verses: 129
Revealed in: Medina

- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)

The surah that announces for all time that God granted to His prophet, to the Emigrant and Helping Companions, and to three errant believers Repentance; and that offers the same opportunity to the unbelievers and the hypocrites, provided they forever renounce hostility, idolatry, and duplicity; and which further demonstrates the faithfulness of this offer in God’s decree of amnesty for the truly repentant idolaters who fought the believers at a place called Ḥunayn. It is named after "repentance" (tawbah) mentioned in verse 3 and verse 5. The surah opens by giving notice of the severance of the treaty with the idolaters because they had broken it, but the bulk of the surah deals with preparations and recruitment for the expedition to Tabūk (year 9/631). The hypocrites and those who stayed behind and failed to support the Prophet Muḥammad are all censured. This is the only surah not to begin with the formula Bismillah.
The surah is also known as: Dispensation, Immunity

وَالَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا مَسْجِدًا ضِرَارًا وَكُفْرًا وَتَفْرِيقًا بَيْنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَإِرْصَادًا لِمَنْ حَارَبَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ مِنْ قَبْلُ ۚ وَلَيَحْلِفُنَّ إِنْ أَرَدْنَا إِلَّا الْحُسْنَىٰ ۖ وَاللَّهُ يَشْهَدُ إِنَّهُمْ لَكَاذِبُونَ ﴿١٠٧﴾
١٠٧ - اور (ان میں سے ایسے بھی ہیں) جنہوں نے اس غرض سے مسجد بنوائی کہ ضرر پہنچائیں اور کفر کریں اور مومنوں میں تفرقہ ڈالیں اور جو لوگ خدا اور اس کے رسول سے پہلے جنگ کرچکے ہیں ان کے لیے گھات کی جگہ بنائیں۔ اور قسمیں کھائیں گے کہ ہمارا مقصود تو صرف بھلائی تھی۔ مگر خدا گواہی دیتا ہے کہ یہ جھوٹے ہیں .
[9:107] And [there are] those [hypocrites] who took for themselves a mosque for causing harm and disbelief and division among the believers and as a station for whoever had warred against Allah and His Messenger before. And they will surely swear, "We intended only the best." And Allah testifies that indeed they are liars.
