109. The Disbelievers (1 – 6)

Some of the Meccan idolaters suggested to the Prophet as a compromise that he should worship their gods for a year and they should worship his for a year. This was the reply.

In the name of God, the Lord of Mercy, the Giver of Mercy

1Say [Prophet], ‘Disbelievers: 2I do not worship what you worship, 3you do not worship what I worship, 4I will never worship what you worship, 5you will never worship what I worship:a If you keep to your present gods (see Zamakhshari, al-Kashshaf, vol. iv). 6you have your religion and I have mine.’

Notes:

a If you keep to your present gods (see Zamakhshari, al-Kashshaf, vol. iv).
