In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
"Among the believers are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah
[i.e. they have gone out for Jihad (holy fighting), and showed not their backs to the disbelievers]; of them some have fulfilled their obligations (i.e. have been martyred); and some ofthem are still waiting, but they have never changed (i.e. they never proved treacherous to their covenant which they concluded with Allah) in the least."
