9:1 A (declaration) of immunity from Allah and His Messenger

1 min read

A (declaration) of immunity from Allah and His Messenger, to those of the Pagans with whom ye have contracted mutual alliances:-

According to Bayan al Quran,

This ayah announces the disavowal by
Allah (SWT) and His Messenger (SAW) unto the idolaters of Arabia. All of the
treaties were abrogated except for those described in the following ayaat. It
should also be mentioned that this surah does not start with ‘Bismillah’ as do
all other surahs in the Qur’an, because ‘Bismillah’ is an assurance of
protection and mercy and as per report of Ali (RAA) this surah was revealed with
a sword in its hand, and thus could not have the assurance of peace and mercy
for the disbelievers.
