˹Remember, O  Prophet,˺ when your Lord revealed to the angels, “I am with you. So make the believers stand firm. I will cast horror into the hearts of the disbelievers. So strike their necks and strike their fingertips.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

[Remember] when your Lord inspired to the angels, "I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip."1

This is because they defied Allah and His Messenger. And whoever defies Allah and His Messenger, then ˹know that˺ Allah is surely severe in punishment.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

That is because they opposed Allah and His Messenger. And whoever opposes Allah and His Messenger - indeed, Allah is severe in penalty.

— Saheeh International

That ˹worldly punishment˺ is yours, so taste it! Then the disbelievers will suffer the torment of the Fire.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

"That [is yours], so taste it." And indeed for the disbelievers is the punishment of the Fire.

O believers! When you face the disbelievers in battle, never turn your backs to them.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

O you who have believed, when you meet those who disbelieve advancing [in battle], do not turn to them your backs [in flight].

— Saheeh International

And whoever does so on such an occasion—unless it is a manoeuvre or to join their own troops—will earn the displeasure of Allah, and their home will be Hell. What an evil destination!

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And whoever turns his back to them on such a day, unless swerving [as a strategy] for war or joining [another] company, has certainly returned with anger [upon him] from Allah, and his refuge is Hell - and wretched is the destination.

It was not you ˹believers˺ who killed them, but it was Allah Who did so. Nor was it you ˹O Prophet˺ who threw ˹a handful of sand at the disbelievers˺,1 but it was Allah Who did so, rendering the believers a great favour. Surely Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And you did not kill them, but it was Allah who killed them.1 And you threw not, [O Muḥammad], when you threw, but it was Allah who threw2 that He might test the believers with a good test.3 Indeed, Allah is Hearing and Knowing.

— Saheeh International

As such, Allah frustrates the evil plans of the disbelievers.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

That [is so], and [also] that Allah will weaken the plot of the disbelievers.

If you ˹Meccans˺ sought judgment, now it has come to you. And if you cease, it will be for your own good. But if you persist, We will persist. And your forces—no matter how numerous they might be—will not benefit you whatsoever. For Allah is certainly with the believers.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

If you [disbelievers] seek the decision [i.e., victory] - the decision [i.e., defeat] has come to you. And if you desist [from hostilities], it is best for you; but if you return [to war], We will return, and never will you be availed by your [large] company at all, even if it should increase; and [that is] because Allah is with the believers.

— Saheeh International

O believers! Obey Allah and His Messenger and do not turn away from him while you hear ˹his call˺.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

O you who have believed, obey Allah and His Messenger and do not turn from him while you hear [his order].

— Saheeh International

Do not be like those who say, “We hear,” but in fact they are not listening.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And do not be like those who say, "We have heard," while they do not hear.

— Saheeh International

Indeed, the worst of all beings in the sight of Allah are the ˹wilfully˺ deaf and dumb, who do not understand.1

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Indeed, the worst of living creatures in the sight of Allah are the deaf and dumb who do not use reason [i.e., the disbelievers].
