Tafsir

How many a prophet has been killed (qutila, a variant reading has qaatala, 'has fought', the subject of the verb being the person governing it) and with him (ma'ahu, the predicate, the subject of which [follows]) thousands manifold [fought], but they fainted not, they did [not] shrink, in the face of what afflicted them in God's way, of wounds and the slaying of their prophets and companions; they neither weakened, in the face of struggle, nor did they humble themselves, [nor did they] succumb to their enemy, as you did when it was said that the Prophet may peace and salutation be upon him had been killed. And God loves the patient, during trials, meaning that He will reward them.
