Quran Chapter 109 - The Disbelievers - Belief, Disbelief and Religious Pluralism

Some of the Meccan idolaters suggested to the Prophet as a compromise that he should worship their gods for a year and they should worship his for a year. This was the reply.

In the name of God, the Lord of Mercy, the Giver of Mercy

1 Say [Prophet], ‘Disbelievers: 2 I do not worship what you worship, 3 you do not worship what I worship, 4 I will never worship what you worship, 5 you will never worship what I worship: [a] 6 you have your religion and I have mine.’


a. If you keep to your present gods (see Zamakhshari, al-Kashshaf, vol. iv).
