Well done, Mezba! MashaAllah. I read this post (and the one before this) thrice! Actually, some non-Muslims use the first verse against us a lot without reading the other verses or taking into consideration the period during which the verse was conveyed to the Prophet (may peace be upon him).

Thank you Nadia, for your comments.
I too have seen the first verse of this surah used out of context (and sometimes with wrong translation!) to argue Muslims and non-Muslims cannot be friends (which is completely wrong, as shown by verses 8 and 9). Muslims and non-Muslims can (and should be) friends, provided they are letting Muslims live at peace and worship as they see fit. And vice-verse (as shown in Surah 109 – Kafirun).
People sometimes fail to remember that Prophet Muhammad himself maintained friendly relations with MANY non-Muslims throughout his life.
Thank you for visiting.

Excellent job! think your depiction of these ayaats will be very useful for many Muslims and non Muslims to better understand the injunctions regarding befriending people of other faiths. Looking forward to the next one 🙂
