goods and your persons, in the cause of Allah. That is best for you, if ye (but) knew.

42. If there had been immediate gain (in sight), and the journey easy, they would (all)

without doubt have followed thee, but the distance was long, (and weighed) on them.

They would indeed swear by Allah, "If we only could, we should certainly have come out

with you": They would destroy their own souls; for Allah doth know that they are

certainly lying.
