There are some who say, “We believe in Allah,” but when they suffer in the cause of Allah, they mistake ˹this˺ persecution at the hands of people for the punishment of Allah. But when victory comes from your Lord, they surely say ˹to the believers˺, “We have always been with you.” Does Allah not know best what is in the hearts of all beings?
— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
And of the people are some who say, "We believe in Allah," but when one [of them] is harmed for [the cause of] Allah, he considers the trial [i.e., harm] of the people as [if it were] the punishment of Allah. But if victory comes from your Lord, they say, "Indeed, We were with you." Is not Allah most knowing of what is within the breasts of the worlds [i.e., all creatures]?
