When the Jews said to him, 'If you are a prophet, then make your way to Syria, for it is the land of prophets', the following was revealed: And indeed (wa-in, [the particle in is] softened) they were about to provoke you out of the land, the land of Medina, to expel you from it, but then, had they expelled you, they would not have remained after you, in it, except a little [while], after which they would have been destroyed.
