[Baqarah 2:216] Fighting in Allah's cause is ordained for you, whereas it is disliked by you; and it is possible that you hate a thing which is better for you; and it is possible that you like a thing which is bad for you; and Allah knows, and you do not know.
[Baqarah 2:217] They ask you the decree regarding fighting in the sacred month; say (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him), “Fighting in it is a great sin; and to prevent from the way of Allah, and not to believe in Him and to prevent (people) from the Sacred Mosque and to expel its residents - these are greater sins before Allah"; and the turmoil they cause is worse than killing; and they will keep fighting you till they turn you away from your religion, if they can; and whoever among you turns renegade and dies as a disbeliever, then their deeds are wasted in this world and in the Hereafter; and they are the people of hell; they will remain in it forever.
[Baqarah 2:218] Those who believed, and those who migrated for the sake of Allah, and fought in Allah's cause - they are hopeful of gaining Allah’s mercy; and Allah is Oft Forgiving, Most Merciful.
[Baqarah 2:219] They ask you the decree
(intoxicants) and gambling; say (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and
be upon him), "In both is great sin, and some worldly benefit for men -
but their sin is greater than their benefit"; and they ask you what
should spend; say, "That which remains spare (surplus)"; this
how Allah explains His verses to you, so that you may think.
