[008:062] And if they intend to deceive you, then verily, All‚h is All-Sufficient for you. He it is Who has supported you with His Help and with the believers.


[008:063] And He has united their (i.e. believers') hearts. If you had spent all that is in the earth, you could not have united their hearts, but All‚h has united them. Certainly He is All-Mighty, All-Wise.


[008:064] O Prophet (Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam])! All‚h is Sufficient for you and for the believers who follow you.


[008:065] O Prophet (Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam])! Urge the believers to fight. If there are twenty steadfast persons amongst you, they will overcome two hundred, and if there be a hundred steadfast persons they will overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they (the disbelievers) are a people who do not understand.


[008:066] Now All‚h has lightened your (task), for He knows that there is weakness in you. So, if there are of you a hundred steadfast persons, they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a thousand of you, they shall overcome two thousand with the Leave of All‚h. And All‚h is with As-S‚birŻn (the patient).


[008:067] It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but All‚h desires (for you) the Hereafter. And All‚h is All-Mighty, All-Wise.


[008:068] Were it not a previous ordainment from All‚h, a severe torment would have touched you for what you took.


[008:069] So enjoy what you have gotten of booty in war, lawful and good, and be afraid of All‚h. Certainly, All‚h is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
