    "Then when the sacred months have passed, slay the associators wherever you find them and catch them, andconfine them and sit in wait for them at every place; again if they repent and establish prayer and give thepoor-due then leave their way. Verily Allah is Forgiving, Merciful." [9:4]

    With the current situation in the middle east, we have certain people quoting this ayah. ISIS supporters are quoting this to justify the killing of innocents, while others quote this to describe Islam as a religion of violence.

    What is the correct explanation and context of this Ayah?
