This is Allah’s favour, and Allah fully knows ˹who deserves it˺.
O believers! Take your precautions and go forth either in groups or together.
There will be some among you who will lag behind so that if you face a disaster, they will say, “Allah has blessed us for not being there among them.”
But if you return with Allah’s bounties, they will say—as if there had been no bond between you—“We wish we had been there with them to share the great gain!”
Let those who would sacrifice this life for the Hereafter fight in the cause of Allah. And whoever fights in Allah’s cause—whether they achieve martyrdom or victory—We will honour them with a great reward.
