If you ever encounter them in battle, make a fearsome example of them, so perhaps those who would follow them may be deterred.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

So if you, [O Muḥammad], gain dominance over them in war, disperse by [means of] them those behind them that perhaps they will be reminded.1

And if you ˹O Prophet˺ see signs of betrayal by a people, respond by openly terminating your treaty with them. Surely Allah does not like those who betray.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

If you [have reason to] fear from a people betrayal, throw [their treaty] back to them, [putting you] on equal terms.1 Indeed, Allah does not like traitors.

Do not let those disbelievers1 think they are not within reach. They will have no escape.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And let not those who disbelieve think they will escape. Indeed, they will not cause failure [to Allah].

— Saheeh International

Prepare against them what you ˹believers˺ can of ˹military˺ power and cavalry to deter Allah’s enemies and your enemies as well as other enemies unknown to you but known to Allah. Whatever you spend in the cause of Allah will be paid to you in full and you will not be wronged.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war1 by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allah knows. And whatever you spend in the cause of Allah will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged.

If the enemy is inclined towards peace, make peace with them. And put your trust in Allah. Indeed, He ˹alone˺ is the All-Hearing, All-Knowing.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And if they incline to peace, then incline to it [also] and rely upon Allah. Indeed, it is He who is the Hearing, the Knowing.

But if their intention is only to deceive you, then Allah is certainly sufficient for you. He is the One Who has supported you with His help and with the believers.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

But if they intend to deceive you - then sufficient for you is Allah. It is He who supported you with His help and with the believers

He brought their hearts together. Had you spent all the riches in the earth, you could not have united their hearts. But Allah has united them. Indeed, He is Almighty, All-Wise.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And brought together their hearts. If you had spent all that is in the earth, you could not have brought their hearts together; but Allah brought them together. Indeed, He is Exalted in Might and Wise.

O  Prophet! Allah is sufficient for you and for the believers who follow you.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

O Prophet, sufficient for you is Allah and for whoever follows you of the believers.

O Prophet! Motivate the believers to fight. If there are twenty steadfast among you, they will overcome two hundred. And if there are one hundred of you, they will overcome one thousand of the disbelievers, for they are a people who do not comprehend.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

O Prophet, urge the believers to battle. If there are among you twenty [who are] steadfast, they will overcome two hundred. And if there are among you one hundred [who are steadfast], they will overcome a thousand of those who have disbelieved because they are a people who do not understand.

— Saheeh International

Now Allah has lightened your burden, for He knows that there is weakness in you. So if there are a hundred steadfast among you, they will overcome two hundred. And if there be one thousand, they will overcome two thousand, by Allah’s Will. And Allah is with the steadfast.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Now, Allah has lightened [the hardship] for you, and He knows that among you is weakness. So if there are from you one hundred [who are] steadfast, they will overcome two hundred. And if there are among you a thousand, they will overcome two thousand by permission of Allah. And Allah is with the steadfast.

— Saheeh International

It is not fit for a prophet that he should take captives until he has thoroughly subdued the land. You ˹believers˺ settled with the fleeting gains of this world,1 while Allah’s aim ˹for you˺ is the Hereafter. Allah is Almighty, All-Wise.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

It is not for a prophet to have captives [of war] until he inflicts a massacre [upon Allah's enemies] in the land. You [i.e., some Muslims] desire the commodities of this world,1 but Allah desires [for you] the Hereafter. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.
