(And they say: If we were to follow the Guidance with thee we should be torn out of our land…) [28:57].
This verse was revealed about al-Harith ibn ‘Uthman ibn Nawfal ibn ‘Abd Manaf when he said to the Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace: “We know that what you say is the truth. However, what prevents us from following you is the fear that the Arabs will drive us out of our land, since they are unanimously against us and we have no power against them”. Therefore, Allah, exalted is He, revealed this verse.
