Juz 9
A blanketing sleep came over you as a (measure of) security from Him, and He sent down rain from the skies to cleanse you, and to remove the plague of Satan, and to strengthen your hearts and steady your steps. (11) And when O dear Prophet, your Lord was inspiring the angels that, “I am with you so make the believers stand firm; I will soon instil fear into the hearts of the disbelievers, so strike above the disbelievers’ necks and hit their each and every bone joint.” (12) That, because they had made a breach with God and with His Messenger; and whosoever makes a breach with God and with His Messenger, surely God is terrible in retribution. (13) That for you; therefore taste it; and that the chastisement of the Fire is for the unbelievers. (14) Believers, when you encounter unbelievers on the march do not turn your backs to them in flight. (15) (Whoever deserts the believers) will incur the wrath of God and will dwell in hell, a terrible dwelling. (16) It was not you who killed them, but God did so. You did not throw what you threw, (sand into the eyes of the enemy at Badr), but God, to bring out the best in the faithful by doing them a favour of His own. God is all-hearing and all-knowing. (17) This, and that Allah is the weakener of the struggle of the unbelievers. (18) (O Unbelievers!) if ye prayed for victory and judgment, now hath the judgment come to you: if ye desist (from wrong), it will be best for you: if ye return (to the attack), so shall We. Not the least good will your forces be to you even if they were multiplied: for verily Allah is with those who believe! (19)
