Battle Of Badr

[3:13] Indeed there was a sign for you in the two hosts (which) met together in encounter; one party fighting in the way of Allah and the other unbelieving, whom they saw twice as many as themselves with the sight of the eye and Allah strengthens with His aid whom He pleases; most surely there is a lesson in this for those who have sight.

[3:123] And Allah did certainly assist you at Badr when you were weak; be careful of (your duty to) Allah then, that you may give thanks.

[3:124] When you said to the believers: Does it not suffice you that your Lord should assist you with three thousand of the angels sent down?

[3:125] Yea! if you remain patient and are on your guard, and they come upon you in a headlong manner, your Lord will assist you with five thousand of the havoc-making angels.

[3:126] And Allah did not make it but as good news for you, and that your hearts might be at ease thereby, and victory is only from Allah, the Mighty, the Wise.

[3:127] That He may cut off a portion from among those who disbelieve, or abase them so that they should return disappointed of attaining what they desired.

[3:128] You have no concern in the affair whether He turns to them (mercifully) or chastises them, for surely they are unjust [8:5] Even as your Lord caused you to go forth from your house with the truth, though a party of the believers were surely averse;

[8:6] They disputed with you about the truth after it had become clear, (and they went forth) as if they were being driven to death while they saw (it).

[8:7] And when Allah promised you one of the two parties that it shall be yours and you loved that the one not armed should be yours and Allah desired to manifest the truth of what was true by His words and to cut off the root of the unbelievers.

[8:8] That He may manifest the truth of what was true and show the falsehood of what was false, though the guilty disliked.

[8:9] When you sought aid from your Lord, so He answered you: I will assist you with a thousand of the angels following one another.

[8:10] And Allah only gave it as a good news and that your hearts might be at ease thereby; and victory is only from Allah; surely Allah is Mighty, Wise.

[8:11] When He caused calm to fall on you as a security from Him and sent down upon you water from the cloud that He might thereby purify you, and take away from you the uncleanness of the Shaitan, and that He might fortify your hearts and steady (your) footsteps thereby.

[8:12] When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.

[8:13] This is because they acted adversely to Allah and His Messenger; and whoever acts adversely to Allah and His Messenger, then surely Allah is severe in requiting (evil).

[8:14] This, taste it, and (know) that for the unbelievers is the chastisement of fire.

[8:15] O you who believe! When you meet those who disbelieve marching for war, then turn not your backs to them.

[8:16] And whoever shall turn his back to them on that day, unless he turn aside for the sake of fighting or withdraws to a company, then he, indeed, becomes deserving of Allah's wrath, and his abode is hell; and an evil destination shall it be.

[8:17] So you did not slay them, but it was Allah Who slew them, and you did not smite when you smote (the enemy), but it was Allah Who smote, and that He might confer upon the believers a good gift from Himself; surely Allah is Hearing, Knowing.

[8:18] This, and that Allah is the weakener of the struggle of the unbelievers.

[8:19] If you demanded a judgment, the judgment has then indeed come to you; and if you desist, it will be better for you; and if you turn back (to fight), We (too) shall turn back, and your forces shall avail you nothing, though they may be many, and (know) that Allah is with the believers.

[8:42] When you were on the nearer side (of the valley) and they were on the farthest side, while the caravan was in a lower place than you; and if you had mutually made an appointment, you would certainly have broken away from the appointment, but in order that Allah might bring about a matter which was to be done, that he who would perish might perish by clear proof, and he who would live might live by clear proof; and most surely Allah is Hearing, Knowing;

[8:43] When Allah showed them to you in your dream as few; and if He had shown them to you as many you would certainly have become weak-hearted and you would have disputed about the matter, but Allah saved (you); surely He is the Knower of what is in the breasts.

[8:44] And when He showed them to you, when you met, as few in your eyes and He made you to appear little in their eyes, in order that Allah might bring about a matter which was to be done, and to Allah are all affairs returned.

[8:48] And when the Shaitan made their works fair seeming to (disbelievers) them, and said: No one can overcome you this day, and surely I am your protector: but when the two parties came in sight of each other he turned upon his heels, and said: Surely I am clear of you, surely I see what you do not see, surely I fear Allah; and Allah is severe in requiting (evil).

[8:70] O Prophet! Say to those of the captives who are in your hands: If Allah knows anything good in your hearts, He will give to you better than that which has been taken away from you and will forgive you, and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

[8:71] And if they intend to act unfaithfully towards you, so indeed they acted unfaithfully towards Allah before, but He gave (you) mastery over them; and Allah is Knowing, Wise.

[54:44] Or do they (pagans) say: We are a host allied together to help each other?

[54:45] Soon shall the hosts be routed, and they shall turn (their) backs.
