They were content to be with those who sit behind, and their hearts are sealed up. So they no longer understand.
But the Messenger and those who believed (were âmenû) strove hard and fought with their property and their souls (lives). And these it is who shall have the good things and these it is who shall have Salvation.
Allah has prepared for them Heavens under which the rivers flow, to abide in them forever. That is Fevz-ül Azîm (the Greatest Achievement, the Greatest Salvation).
And those with excuses among the Bedouins came to be permitted, and they who had lied to Allah and His Messenger sat (behind). A painful torment will befall those of them who disbelieved.
There is no blame on those who are weak or ill or who find no resources to spend, if they advise (and remain true to their advise) for Allah and His Messenger. There is no way upon (against) the Muhsinîn (good-doers). And Allah is Oft-Forgiving (the One Who changes evil deeds into merits), Most Merciful (the One Who sends the light of mercy).
Nor (is there any blame) on those who came to you that you might carry them, when you said: “I cannot find that on which to carry you”; they went back while their eyes overflowed with tears, grieving that they could not find that which they should spend.
The way (the sin) is only against those who ask permission of you though they are rich. They are content to be with those who remained behind. And Allah has sealed up their hearts, so they no longer know.
