Quran sura 9 repentance

129 verses. Pagans unrepentant after four months face war. People of the Book must submit and pay the Jizya. Jews call Ezra a son of God, Christians Christ is the Son.They have priests and anchorites as lords. No exemption from fighting. Only that God has decreed will happen. He protects believers. Sent to Noah, Hebrews, Thamud in Arabia, Abraham, Midian and cities overthrown.. Hypocrites made a covenant with God for bounty and they would be charitable and righteous. But turned back. Desert Arabs failed to help Mohammed. Medina too.
