Surah At-Tawbah (Arabic: سورة التوبة, Sūratu at-Tawbah, "The Repentance") also known as al-Bara'ah "the Ultimatum" in many hadith is the ninth chapter of the Qur'an, with 129 verses. It is one of the last Madinan Suras. It is the only Sura of the Qur'an that does not begin with the bismillah. This sura was revealed at the time of the Battle of Tabuk.

At-Tawba 5 is the so-called "sword verse".

Verse 30 deals with pagans and equates them with the People of the Book, to the effect of "Allah's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!"[1]

Verse 37 documents the prohibition of Nasīʾ. This prohibition was repeated by Muhammad during the last sermon on Mount Arafat which was delivered during the Farewell Pilgrimage to Mecca on 9 Dhu al-Hijja 10 AH.

When the Qu'ran was first compiled there was only one person who had the last two verses of at-Tawba written down: Abi Khuzaima al-Ansari,[2][clarification needed]
