Quran 9 Verse 76 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Taubah ayat 76, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(9:76) Then, when He gave them out of His bounty, they grew niggardly and turned their backs (upon their covenant).[86]


86. This is an instance of their ingratitude for which the hypocrites were rebuked in Ayat 74.

They broke their covenant with Allah which enjoined them to spend money in charity, if Allah enriched them by His bounty. This shows that they were confirmed criminals and they did not care in the least for the agreements they made, and were niggardly and had no moral code to observe.
