Translation

Is it not (the case) that every time they make a covenant, some party among them throw it aside?- Nay, Most of them are faithless.

Tafsir

Why, whenever they make a covenant, with God that they will believe in the Prophet may peace and salutation be upon him when he appears, or that they will not give assistance to the idolaters against the Prophet may peace and salutation be upon him, does a party of them reject it?, cast it away repudiating it (this is the response to the clause beginning with kullamaa, the interrogative of rebuke). Nay (bal indicates a transition), but most of them are disbelievers.
