Ehteshaam Gulam on Quran Chapter 9 and Critics of Islam
Also uploaded here
For the Historical Context of the Quran 9 see Tafsir Ibn Kathir, Tafsir Ibn Abbas, Tafsir Al-Qurtubi, etc. Also see The Sealed Nectar pages 453-510 regarding the historical context of the Quran 9. Basically this chapter of the Quran was revealed when the Prophet Muhammad and the early Muslims were under attack by the Pagans of Arabia, the Romans, the hypocrites, etc.
The Quran says you can live peacefully with non Believers or Non Muslims in Quran 60:8 and Quran 109. There is no evidence that these verses were abberrated. The Prophet Muhammad never said these vereses were abberrated neither did Ibn Kathir, etc. In fact Muslim scholars don't know which verses abberate other verses, so its incorrect to say the peaceful verses are cancelled out in favor of Quran 9.
Umar Ibn Khattab quoted Quran 2:256 after the Prophet Muhammad's death in Al-Kanz Volume 5 Page 50. The Prophet Muhammad said follow Umar Ibn Khattab in Tirmidhi Volume 6, Page 348, Hadith #3662. So the Quran 2:256 is not aberrated.
