Section 2

[Taubah 9:7] How can there be a treaty with Allah and with His Noble Messenger for the polytheists, except for those with whom you made a treaty near the Sacred Mosque? So as long as they remain firm on the treaty for you, you too remain firm for them; indeed Allah is pleased with the pious.

[Taubah 9:8] Therefore how - when they are such that if they gain control over you, they would not have regard for any relations nor for any treaty? They please you with their mouths whereas their hearts contain rejection; and most of them are disobedient.

[Taubah 9:9] They exchanged the verses of Allah for an abject price, therefore prevented from His way; indeed what they do is extremely evil.

[Taubah 9:10] In respect of the Muslims, they do not keep regard for any relations nor any pacts; it is they who are the rebels.

[Taubah 9:11] Then if they repent and keep the prayer established and pay the charity, they are your brothers in religion; and we explain Our verses in detail for the people of knowledge.

[Taubah 9:12] And if they break their promises after making a treaty and malign your religion, then fight the leaders of disbelief - indeed their promises are nothing - in the hope that they may desist.

[Taubah 9:13] Will you not fight the people who broke their promises, and intended to expel the Noble Messenger whereas they had started it? Do you fear them? So Allah has more right that you should fear Him, if you have faith.
