009 - Soorah at-Towbah - (The Repentance) - [Madanee]
[009:048] Verily, they had plotted sedition before, and had upset matters for you, until the truth (victory) came and the Decree of Allâh (His religion, Islâm) became manifest though they hated it.
[009:049] And among them is he who says: "Grant me leave (to be exempted from Jihâd) and put me not into trial." Surely they have fallen into trial. And verily, Hell is surrounding the disbelievers.
[009:050] If good befalls you (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]), it grieves them, but if a calamity overtakes you, they say: "We took our precaution beforehand" and they turn away rejoicing.
[009:051] Say: "Nothing shall ever happen to us except what Allâh has ordained for us. He is our Maulâ (Lord, Helper and Protector)." And in Allâh let the believers put their trust.
[009:052] Say: "Do you wait for us (anything) except one of the two best things (martyrdom or victory)? While we await for you either that Allâh will afflict you with a punishment from Himself or at our hands. So wait, we too are waiting with you."
[009:053] Say: "Spend (in Allâh's Cause) willingly or unwillingly, it will not be accepted from you. Verily, you are ever a people who are Fâsiqűn (rebellious, disobedient to Allâh)."
[009:054] And nothing prevents their contributions from being accepted from them except that they disbelieved in Allâh and in His Messenger (Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]), and that they came not to As-Salât (the prayers) except in a lazy state, and that they offer not contributions but unwillingly.
(V.9:51) See the footnote of (V.57:22).
(V.9:54) Narrated Abu Hurairah [radhi-yAllâhu 'anhu]: The Prophet [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam] said, "No Salât (prayer) is more heavy (harder) for the hypocrites than the Fajr and the 'Ishâ prayer; but if they knew the reward for these Salât (prayers) at their respective times, they would certainly present themselves (in the mosques) even if they had to crawl." The Prophet [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam] added, "Certainly, I intended (or was about) to order the Mu'âdhdhin (call-maker) to pronounce Iqâmah and order a man to lead the Salât (prayer), and then take a fire flame to burn all those (men along with their houses) who had not yet left their houses for the Salât (prayer) (in the mosques)."
