[004:075] And what is wrong with you that you fight not in the Cause of Allh, and for those weak, ill-treated and oppressed among men, women, and children, whose cry is: "Our Lord! Rescue us from this town whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from You one who will protect, and raise for us from You one who will help."


[004:076] Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allh, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Tght (Satan). So fight you against the friends of Shaitn (Satan); ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitn (Satan).


[004:077] Have you not seen those who were told to hold back their hands (from fighting) and perform As-Salt (the prayers), and give Zakt (obligatory charity), but when the fighting was ordained for them, behold! a section of them fear men as they fear Allh or even more. They say: "Our Lord! Why have You ordained for us fighting? Would that You had granted us respite for a short period?" Say: "Short is the enjoyment of this world. The Hereafter is (far) better for him who fears Allh, and you shall not be dealt with unjustly even equal to the Fatl (a scalish thread in the long slit of a date stone).


[004:078] "Wheresoever you may be, death will overtake you even if you are in fortresses built up strong and high!" And if some good reaches them, they say, "This is from Allh," but if some evil befalls them, they say, "This is from you (O Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam])." Say: "All things are from Allh," so what is wrong with these people that they fail to understand any word?


[004:079] Whatever of good reaches you, is from Allh, but whatever of evil befalls you, is from yourself. And We have sent you (O Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) as a Messenger to mankind, and Allh is Sufficient as a Witness.
