As-salaam wa-alaikum, brothers and sisters.

Summary

Today’s selection is from Surah 9, At-Tauba or Repentance, verses 17-29. These verses cover a number of subjects. The Mushrikeen (or those who associate others with Allah) cannot be caretakers of mosques. Service to pilgrims who come on the Haaj is not equal to true belief in God. Do not take your fathers and brothers as friends if they prefer Kufr (unbelief) over Imaan (belief). Lastly, God only helps the qualities of followers, not the quantity of them.
