سَيَقُولُ ٱلۡمُخَلَّفُونَ إِذَا ٱنطَلَقۡتُمۡ إِلَىٰ مَغَانِمَ لِتَأۡخُذُوهَا ذَرُونَا نَتَّبِعۡكُمۡ ۖ يُرِيدُونَ أَن يُبَدِّلُواْ كَلَٰمَ ٱللَّهِ ۚ قُل لَّن تَتَّبِعُونَا كَذَٰلِكُمۡ قَالَ ٱللَّهُ مِن قَبۡلُ ۖ فَسَيَقُولُونَ بَلۡ تَحۡسُدُونَنَا ۚ بَلۡ كَانُواْ لَا يَفۡقَهُونَ إِلَّا قَلِيلًا
Those who lagged behind (will say), when ye (are free to) march and take booty (in war): "Permit us to follow you." They wish to change Allah's decree: Say: "Not thus will ye follow us: Allah has already declared (this) beforehand": then they will say, "But ye are jealous of us." Nay, but little do they understand (such things).<br/>
Those, mentioned, who were left behind will say, when you set forth after spoils, namely, the spoils of Khaybar, in order to capture them, 'Let us follow you', that we might [also] take a share of it. They desire, thereby, to change the words of God (kalaama'Llaahi: a variant reading has kalima'Llaahi), in other words, His promising of the spoils of Khaybar exclusively for those who were at al-Hudaybiyya. Say: 'You shall never follow us! Thus has God said beforehand', that is, prior to our return. Then they will say, 'Nay, but you are envious of us', lest we might acquire a share of the spoils, and therefore you say this [that you say]. Nay, but they never understood, anything of religion, [all] except a few, of them.
