Ayah

وَيَقُولُ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ لَوۡلَا نُزِّلَتۡ سُورَةٌ ۖ فَإِذَآ أُنزِلَتۡ سُورَةٌ مُّحۡكَمَةٌ وَذُكِرَ فِيهَا ٱلۡقِتَالُ ۙ رَأَيۡتَ ٱلَّذِينَ فِى قُلُوبِهِم مَّرَضٌ يَنظُرُونَ إِلَيۡكَ نَظَرَ ٱلۡمَغۡشِىِّ عَلَيۡهِ مِنَ ٱلۡمَوۡتِ ۖ فَأَوۡلَىٰ لَهُمۡ

Translation

Those who believe say, "Why is not a sura sent down (for us)?" But when a sura of basic or categorical meaning is revealed, and fighting is mentioned therein, thou wilt see those in whose hearts is a disease looking at thee with a look of one in swoon at the approach of death. But more fitting for them-<br/>

Tafsir

And those who believe say, seeking to take part in the struggle: 'Why has a soora not been revealed?', [one] in which there is mention of the [command to participate in the] struggle. But when a definitive soora is revealed, one in which nothing is abrogated (naskh), and fighting, that is to say, requirement for it, is mentioned in it, you see those in whose hearts is a sickness, that is, doubt - and they are the hypocrites - looking at you with the look of someone fainting at [the point of] death, because of [their] fear of it and [their] aversion to it; in other words, they fear fighting and are averse to it. Yet more fitting for them (faawlaa lahum is a subject, the predicate of which [is the following, taa'atun wa-qawlun ma'roofun])
