Tafsir

When, on the Day of Uhud, the Prophet received a head wound and his front tooth was broken, and he said, 'How does a people who have drenched the face of their Prophet in blood [expect to] prosper?', the following was revealed: It is no concern at all of yours, nay, it is God's concern, so be patient, whether, meaning, until such time as, He relents to them, through [their acceptance of] Islam, or chastises them; for they are indeed evildoers, by [virtue of their] disbelief.
