THIS CHAPTER contains 129 verses arranged in sixteen sections. They are all from Madina except for the two final verses which date from the Farewell Pilgrimage to Mecca (as does Chapter 110 on [Divine] Support). This chapter was revealed after The Table 5 and the expedition to Tabiik on the road to Damascus which occurred in A.H. 9 / 630 A.D., or two years before the Prophet's death (VI,XIII). The alternate title of Dispensation (OR Release) comes from v.1, while the main one of Repentance (which is preferred by the great commentator Ibn-Kathir) is to be found in VV. 5, 11 and 103. The battle of Hunayn which occurred in the year 8 / 630 is discussed in sections XIII & XIV. There is no invocation to this chapter since it is really a continuation of the previous one on Booty 8, and the first verse invokes God's name. It strongly advises us against associating other deities in our pure worship of God Alone or the sin of idolatry, as it is called, and against trusting treacherous neighbors. Associators should not visit mosques (III), while priests and clergy are called unnecessary since God can be approached directly; likewise God has no son (V). Charity is another theme which is discussed (VII-VIII), especially its use in missionary effort (VIII). We also read biographical details about the Prophet's suffering during his Transfer or the Hijra from Mecca to Yathrib, which was then to b called Madina (the Enlightened City'-al-Madina al-Munawwara-or the Prophet's City'). We likewise learn about his troubles in imposing a draft or military service, especially on the rich (VII) and the nomads (XI-XII) which are described in an especially vivid manner. Dissension had been stirred up by hypocritical agitators and draft dodgers who went out among the fickle desert folk, The Migrants or refugees similarly had their trouble in settling down in his new capital of Madina. The ending is one of the last sections in the whole Quran to be revealed. In the name of God, the Mercy-giving, the Merciful! (I)
