Tafsir of Surat at-Tawba: Repentance

 

A Tafsir of Surat at-Tawba taken from traditional sources. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. [Tawbah 9:29]
