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

لَا تَقُمْ فِيهِ أَبَدًا ۚ لَمَسْجِدٌ أُسِّسَ عَلَى التَّقْوَىٰ مِنْ أَوَّلِ يَوْمٍ أَحَقُّ أَنْ تَقُومَ فِيهِ ۚ فِيهِ رِجَالٌ يُحِبُّونَ أَنْ يَتَطَهَّرُوا ۚ وَاللَّهُ يُحِبُّ الْمُطَّهِّرِينَ ﴿١٠٨﴾
١٠٨ - تم اس (مسجد) میں کبھی (جاکر) کھڑے بھی نہ ہونا۔ البتہ وہ مسجد جس کی بنیاد پہلے دن سے تقویٰ پر رکھی گئی ہے اس قابل ہے کہ اس میں جایا (اور نماز پڑھایا) کرو۔ اس میں ایسے لوگ ہیں جو کہ پاک رہنے کو پسند کرتے ہیں۔ اور خدا پاک رہنے والوں کو ہی پسند کرتا ہے .
[9:108] Do not stand [for prayer] within it - ever. A mosque founded on righteousness from the first day is more worthy for you to stand in. Within it are men who love to purify themselves; and Allah loves those who purify themselves.
[Transliteration] Laa taqum feehi abadaa, lamasjidun ussisa 'alat taqwaa min awwali yawmin ahaqqu an taqooma feeh, feehi rijaaluny yuhibbona ai yatatahharoo, wallaahu yuhibbul mmuttah hireen
