Ali Quli Qarai, The Qur’ān with a Phrase-by-Phrase English Translation (2005)

74 Those who have believed, migrated,
and waged jihād in the way of Allah,
and those who gave them shelter and help,
it is they who are truly the faithful.
For them shall be forgiveness and a noble provision.
75 And those who believed afterwards and migrated,
and waged jihād along with you,
they belong to you;
but the blood relatives
are more entitled to inherit from one another
in the Book of Allah.1
Indeed Allah has knowledge of all things.

9. Sūrat al-Tawbah 2

1 [This is] a [declaration of] repudiation by Allah
and His Apostle [addressed]
to the polytheists with whom you had made a treaty:
2 Travel [unmolested] in the land for four months,
but know that you cannot thwart Allah,
and that Allah shall disgrace the faithless.
3 [This is] an announcement from Allah
and His Apostle
to all the people
on the day of the greater ḥajj:3
that Allah
and His Apostle repudiate the polytheists:

1 Cf. 33:6.

2 The sūrah is named after ‘repentance’ (tawbah), mentioned in verses 3 & 5.

3 That is, the tenth of Dhū al-Ḥijjah, the day on which the pilgrims perform some of the major rites of the ḥajj in Minā.
