A summary of the verses being recited.

11th of Ramadhaan (Juzz 11 [9:93 to 11:7])

To be recited Friday Night (Aug 20)

Surah 9 – at-Tawbah – “Repentance”

Summary: Widely regarded to be a continuation of the previous chapter, this Surah takes its name from verse 104. It is also called al-Bara’a (Disavowal) taken from the first verse, and is the only Surah that does not commence with the basmAllah because of its stern commandments against the polytheists. It was revealed in the 9th year of Hijra and proclaimed the end of idolatry in Arabia. The Christian Byzantine Empire had made moves against the rising power in Arabia and so the chapter contains instructions towards the impending war; therefore, the expedition of Tabuk is discussed as well as the plots of the hypocrites to undermine Muslim society.
