3. Thalika bi-anna allatheena kafaroo ittabaAAoo albatila waanna allatheena amanoo

ittabaAAoo alhaqqa min rabbihim kathalika yadribu Allahu li

3. This because those who reject Allah follow vanities, while those who believe follow

the Truth from their Lord: Thus does Allah set forth for men their lessons by similitudes.

4. Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; At length,

when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the

time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus (are ye

commanded): but if it had been Allah.s Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution

from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But

those who are slain in the Way of Allah,- He will never let their deeds be lost.
