Ahmed Ali

O believers, when you meet an army, stand firm, and think of God a great deal that you may be blessed with success.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (o ye who believe!) he means the companions of muhammad (pbuh) (when you meet an army) a group of the disbelievers on the day of badr, (hold firm) along with your prophet in war (and think of allah much) in your hearts and with your tongues, saying: “there is no deity except allah”, and “allah is the greatest”, (that ye may be successful) that you may be safe from allah's wrath and punishment and be assisted.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : o you who believe, when you meet a host, a group of disbelievers, then stand firm, to fight them and do not [flee in] retreat, and remember god much, call upon him for victory, that you may succeed, [that you may] triumph.
