The Declaration of Innocence from Shirk
This Surah is the Surah of disavowal from the deeds of the idolators. It commands a complete disavowal of that. Allah’s statement, (Say: “O disbelievers!”) includes every disbeliever on the face of the earth, however, this statement is particularly directed towards the disbelievers of the Quraysh. It has been said that in their ignorance they invited the Messenger of Allah to worship their idols for a year and they would (in turn) worship his God for a year. Therefore, Allah revealed this Surah.

Reciting Sooratul-Kaafiroon When Going To Bed
Imaam Aboo Daawood -rahimahullaah- reported in his “Sunan‟[The Book of Manners: Chapter (107) What should be said at the time of sleep] (no. 5055):
“an-Nufaylee narrated to us: Zuhayr narrated to us: Aboo Ishaaq narrated to us: from Farwah ibn Nawfal: from his father: that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said << Read Soorah Kaafiroon then sleep upon its conclusion, because it is a declaration of freedom from shirk >>.”
– Declared “Saheeh” by Shaikh al-Albaanee.
– Also reported by Imaam at-Tirmidhee (no.3403).
