Tafsir

And if they incline to peace (read silm or salm, meaning, 'settlement'), then incline to it, and conclude a pact with them: Ibn 'Abbaas said, 'This has been abrogated by the "sword verse" [Q. 9:5]'; Mujaahid said, 'This [stipulation] applies exclusively in the context of the People of the Scripture, for it was revealed regarding the Banoo Qurayza; and rely on God, put your trust in Him; truly He is the Hearer, of words, the Knower, of actions.
