˹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.”
١٣
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.
١٤
That ˹worldly punishment˺ is yours, so taste it! Then the disbelievers will suffer the torment of the Fire.
١٥
O believers! When you face the disbelievers in battle, never turn your backs to them.
١٦
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!
