004.072 There are certainly among you men who would tarry behind: If a misfortunebefalls you, they say:"God did favour us in that we were not present among them."
004.073 But if good fortune comes to you from God, they would be sure to say - as if there had never been ties of affection between you and them - "Oh! I wish I had been with them; a fine thing should I thenhave made of it!"
004.074 Let those fightin the cause of God who sell the life of thisworld for the hereafter. To him who fighteth in the cause of God,- whether he is slain or gets victory - Soon shall We give him a reward of great (value).
004.075 And why should ye not fight in the cause of God and of those who, being weak, are ill-treated (and oppressed)?- Men,women, and children, whose cry is: "Our Lord!Rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from thee one who will protect; and raise for us from thee one who will help!"
004.076 Those who believe fight in the cause of God, and those who reject Faith Fight in the cause of Evil: So fight ye againstthe friends of Satan: feeble in deed is the cunning of Satan.
004.077 Hast thou not turned Thy vision to those who were told to hold back their hands (from fight) but establish regular prayers and spend in regular charity? When (at length) the order for fighting was issuedto them, behold! a section of them fearedmen as - or even more than - they should have feared God: They said: "Our Lord! Why hast Thou ordered us to fight? Wouldst Thounot Grant us respite toour (natural) term, near (enough)?" Say:"Short is the enjoyment of this world: the Hereafter is the best for those who do right: Never willye be dealt with unjustly in the very least! 004.078 "Wherever ye are, death will find you out, even if ye are in towers built up strong and high!" If some good befalls them, they say, "This is fromGod"; but if evil, they say, "This is from thee" (O Prophet). Say:"All things are from God." But what hath come to these people, that they fail to understand a single fact?
004.079 Whatever good, (O man!) happens to thee, is from God; but whatever evil happens to thee, is from thy (own) soul. and We have sent thee as a Messenger to (instruct) mankind. And enough is God for a witness.
004.080 He who obeys the Messenger, obeys God: But if any turn away, We have not sent thee to watch over their (evil deeds).
004.081 They have"Obedience" on their lips; but when they leave thee, a section of them Meditate all night on things very different from what thou tellest them. But God records their nightly (plots): So keep clear of them, and put thy trust in God, and enough is God as a disposer of affairs.
004.082 Do they not consider the Qur'an (with care)? Had it been from other than God, they would surely have found therein much discrepancy. 004.083 When there comes to them some matter touching (Public) safety or fear, they divulge it. If they had only referred it to the Messenger, or to those charged with authority among them,the proper investigators would have tested it from them (direct). Were it not for the Grace and Mercy of God unto you,all but a few of you would have followed Satan.
004.084 Then fight in God's cause - Thou art held responsible only for thyself - and rouse the believers. It may be that God will restrain the fury of the Unbelievers; for God is the strongest in might and in punishment.
004.085 Whoever recommends and helpsa good cause becomes a partner therein: And whoever recommends and helps an evil cause,shares in its burden: And God hath power over all things.
004.086 When a (courteous) greeting is offered you, meet it with a greeting still more courteous, or (at least) of equal courtesy. God takes careful account of all things.
