[004:066] And if We had ordered them (saying), "Kill yourselves (i.e. the innnocent ones kill the guilty ones) or leave your homes," very few of them would have done it; but if they had done what they were told, it would have been better for them, and would have strengthened their (Faith);


[004:067] And indeed We should then have bestowed upon them a great reward from Ourselves.


[004:068] And indeed We should have guided them to the Straight Way.


[004:069] And whoso obeys Allh and the Messenger (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]), then they will be in the company of those on whom Allh has bestowed His Grace, of the Prophets, the Siddiqn (those followers of the Prophets who were first and foremost to believe in them, like Abu Bakr As-Siddq [radhi-yAllhu 'anhu]), the martyrs, and the righteous. And how excellent these companions are!


[004:070] Such is the bounty from Allh, and Allh is Sufficient as All-Knower.


[004:071] O you who believe! Take your precautions, and either go forth (on an expedition) in parties, or go forth all together.


[004:072] There is certainly among you he who would linger behind (from fighting in Allh's Cause). If a misfortune befalls you, he says, "Indeed Allh has favoured me in that I was not present among them."


[004:073] But if a bounty (victory and booty) comes to you from Allh, he would surely say as if there had never been ties of affection between you and him "Oh! I wish I had been with them; then I would have achieved a great success ( a good share of booty)."


[004:074] Let those (believers) who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter fight in the Cause of Allh; and whoso fights in the Cause of Allh, and is killed or gets victory, We shall bestow on him a great reward.
