Ayah

وَلَوۡ أَنَّا كَتَبۡنَا عَلَيۡهِمۡ أَنِ ٱقۡتُلُوٓاْ أَنفُسَكُمۡ أَوِ ٱخۡرُجُواْ مِن دِيَٰرِكُم مَّا فَعَلُوهُ إِلَّا قَلِيلٌ مِّنۡهُمۡ ۖ وَلَوۡ أَنَّهُمۡ فَعَلُواْ مَا يُوعَظُونَ بِهِۦ لَكَانَ خَيۡرًا لَّهُمۡ وَأَشَدَّ تَثۡبِيتًا

Translation

If We had ordered them to sacrifice their lives or to leave their homes, very few of them would have done it: But if they had done what they were (actually) told, it would have been best for them, and would have gone farthest to strengthen their (faith);<br/>

Tafsir

And had We prescribed for them: (the particle an, 'that', is explicative) 'Slay yourselves' or 'Leave your habitations', as We did for the Israelites, they would not have done it, that is, what has been prescribed for them, save a few (read nominative qaleelun, as a substitution; or read accusative qaleelan, as an exceptive clause) of them; yet if they had done what they were admonished to do, of obedience to the Messenger may peace and salutation be upon him, it would have been better for them, and stronger in establishing, [a stronger] confirmation of their faith.
