With the name of Allah, the Impartial, the Compassionate.

(109) Al-Kafiroon

The name ‘Kafiroon’- Disbelievers- is taken from the first verse of this Surah. It is revealed during the Meccan life of Prophet Muhammad. The Meccan pagans approached Prophet’s Paternal Uncle- Abu Twalib and told him that they are ready to worship Allah-the Deity- if Muhammad allows them to worship their deities whom their forefathers used to worship. When Abu Twalib informed this matter to Prophet, this Surah is revealed as a reply. Then Prophet told: “If you give me the Sun on my right hand and the Moon on my left, I should not give up this mission. These are not my words, but words from Allah- Lord of the worlds”.
