Tafsir

And spend in the way of God, in obedience to Him, in holy struggle and the like; and cast not your own hands, yourselves (the baa' of bi-aydeekum 'with your hands' is extra) into destruction, by withholding funds needed for the struggle or abandoning it altogether, because this will give your enemy the advantage over you; but be virtuous, by spending etc.; God loves the virtuous, that is, He rewards them.
