[Fath 48:16] Say to the ignorant who stayed behind, “You will soon be called against a nation of great military strength - to fight against them or that they become Muslims; so if you obey, Allah will give you an excellent reward; and if you turn away, the way you had turned away before, He will mete out a painful punishment to you.”

[Fath 48:17] There is no reproach upon the blind, nor reproach against the lame, nor reproach upon the sick; and whoever obeys Allah and His Noble Messenger - Allah will admit him into Gardens beneath which rivers flow; and whoever turns away - He will mete out a painful punishment to him.

Section 3

[Fath 48:18] Indeed Allah was truly pleased with the believers when they swore allegiance to you beneath the tree - so He knew what was in their hearts - He therefore sent down peace upon them, and rewarded them with an imminent victory.

[Fath 48:19] And plenty of war booty, to take; and Allah is Most Honourable, Wise.

[Fath 48:20] Allah has promised you plenty of booty which you will take, and has bestowed this to you quickly, and restrained peoples’ hands from you; and in order that it may be a sign for the believers, and to guide you on the Straight Path.

[Fath 48:21] And one more, not within your capacity, is within Allah’s hold; and Allah is Able to do all things.

[Fath 48:22] And if the disbelievers were to fight you, they will turn away and flee, and then they will not find any supporter nor any aide.

[Fath 48:23] The tradition of Allah, ongoing since before; and you will not find the tradition of Allah changing.
