The story behind surah al-Kafirun

Surah al-Kafirun
(the story behind it)

When the Prophet (peace be upon him) first started calling people to Islam and the Quraysh became upset, they made many offers to him to stop teaching Islam.
One such offer was that they would leave him alone if he agreed to worship their gods one year and they would worship his god one year.
In response to this offer, Allah revealed this Surah showing that there can be no compromise in the worship of Allah alone.
