[008:009] (Remember) when you sought help of your Lord and He answered you (saying): "I will help you with a thousand of the angels each behind the other (following one another) in succession."


[008:010] Allâh made it only as glad tidings, and that your hearts be at rest therewith. And there is no victory except from Allâh. Verily, Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.


[008:011] (Remember) when He covered you with a slumber as a security from Him, and He caused water (rain) to descend on you from the sky, to clean you thereby and to remove from you the Rijz (whispering, evil suggestions) of Shaitân (Satan), and to strengthen your hearts, and make your feet firm thereby.


[008:012] (Remember) when your Lord revealed to the angels, "Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes."


[008:013] This is because they defied and disobeyed Allâh and His Messenger [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]. And whoever defies and disobeys Allâh and His Messenger [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam], then verily, Allâh is Severe in punishment.


[008:014] This is (the torment), so taste it; and surely, for the disbelievers is the torment of the Fire.


[008:015] O you who believe! When you meet those who disbelieve, in a battlefield, never turn your backs to them.


[008:016] And whoever turns his back to them on such a day – unless it be a stratagem of war, or to retreat to a troop (of his own), – he indeed has drawn upon himself wrath from Allâh. And his abode is Hell, and worst indeed is that destination!
