And if We have prescribed for them: “Kill your own souls or go forth from your homes”, they would not have done it except a few of them; and if they had done what they were admonished, it would have certainly been better for them and best in strengthening (their Faith).
And then We would certainly have given them from Our Presence an immense reward (a Grand Wage).
And We would certainly have guided them to Sıratı Mustakîm (the Path that delivers to Allah).
Whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger, they are with those to whom Allah has granted a Blessing, of the Prophets and the Sıddîk (truthful) and the martyrs and the Sâlihîn (improved ones). The best of company are they.
This is such a Virtue from Allah and Allah is Sufficient as All-Knowing.
O you who believe (who are âmenû, who wish to render their spirits back to Allah before death)! Take your weapons, then go forth in detachments or go forth in a body to war.
And there is certainly among you he who would linger behind (delays on going to war) If then a misfortune befalls you he says: “Surely Allah conferred a blessing on me that I was not martyred with them”.
But if a grace (victory) comes to you from Allah, he will surely say, as if there had never been between you and him any conversation. "Oh, I wish I had been with them so I could have achieved a great success (a good share of booty)”.
So let those fight in the cause of Allah who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter, and whoever is killed fighting in the Way of Allah or is victorious, We shall grant him a Mighty Reward (an Immense Wage).
