وَإِمَّا تَخَافَنَّ مِن قَوْمٍ خِيَانَةً فَٱنْبِذْ إِلَيْهِمْ عَلَىٰ سَوَآءٍ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لاَ يُحِبُّ ٱلخَائِنِينَ
-Al-Anfâl ( الأنفال )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And if you fear, from any folk, who have concluded a pact with you, some treachery, in a pact, through some indication that comes to you, then cast it back to them, dissolve their pact, with fairness (‘alā sawā’ is a circumstantial qualifier), that is to say, while you and they have equal knowledge that the pact has been broken, by your apprising them thereof, lest they accuse you of treachery. Truly God does not love the treacherous.
