109. Surah Al-Kfirn سورة الكافرون


This Surah (Revealed) Meccan or Medinese, consisting of 6 verses; this was revealed when a band of idolaters said to the Prophet (s), What if you worship our gods for one year, and we worship your God the next?(Al-Kfirn)
Ayah   109:1   الأية الأولي
بِسْم ِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
Ayah First   1   الأية الأولي
Say: O disbelievers!
Ayah   109:2   الأية
I do not worship, at present, what you worship, of idols,
Ayah   109:3   الأية
and you do not worship, at present, what I worship, and that is God, exalted be He, alone,
Ayah   109:4   الأية
nor will I worship, in the future, what you have worshipped,
Ayah   109:5   الأية
nor will you worship, in the future, what I worship: God knew that they would never become believers (the use of [the inanimate] mā, what, to refer to God is meant to counter [the reference to what thing they worship]).
Ayah   109:6   الأية
You have your religion, idolatry, and I have a religion, Islam: this was [revealed] before he was commanded to wage war [against the idolaters] (all seven Qurānic readers omit the yā of the genitive possessive construction [in wa-liya dīni] whether with a pause or without; Yaqūb, however, retains it in both cases).
