[Ahzab 33:7] And remember O dear Prophet (Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him) when We took a covenant from the Prophets - and from you - and from Nooh, and Ibrahim, and Moosa, and Eisa the son of Maryam; and We took a firm covenant from them.

[Ahzab 33:8] So that He may question the truthful regarding their truth; and He has kept prepared a painful punishment for the disbelievers.

Section 2

[Ahzab 33:9] O People who believe! Remember the favour of Allah upon you when some armies came against you, so We sent against them a windstorm and the armies you could not see; and Allah sees your deeds.

[Ahzab 33:10] When the disbelievers came upon you from above you and from below you, and when the eyes became fixed in stare and the hearts came up to the throats, and you were imagining matters regarding Allah.

[Ahzab 33:11] That proved be the testing ground for the Muslims, and they were subjected to a severe shake.

[Ahzab 33:12] And when the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, began saying, “Allah and His Noble Messenger have not given us a promise except one of deceit.”

[Ahzab 33:13] And when a group among said, “O people of Madinah! This is no place of stay for you, therefore go back to your homes”; and a group among them sought exemption from the Prophet by saying, “Our homes are unprotected” whereas their homes were not unprotected; they willed nothing except to flee.

[Ahzab 33:14] And if the armies had come upon them from the outskirts of Madinah and demanded disbelief from them, they would certainly have given them their demand and would not have hesitated in it except a little.

[Ahzab 33:15] And indeed before this they had agreed with Allah that they would not turn their backs; and the covenant of Allah will be questioned about.
