Lesson 

 

The religious scholars say that this verse signifies towards the Battle of Badr. While the Muslims frightened observing a large number of Infidels, Allah Almighty commanded for their consolation, “Is it not sufficient for you that your Lord should support you with angels (peace be upon them) sent down from the sky for your help against the Infidels?”

 

Then Allah Almighty affirmed, “if you persevere, prove to be patient, fear from Allah Almighty and keep away from evil, and the enemy’s Army attacks you suddenly, then your Lord will help you with five thousand instead of three thousand angels (peace be upon them) sweeping on special marked horses”.

 

Number of Infidels was one thousand in the field of battle. Therefore, Allah Almighty promised to send one thousand Angels (peace be upon them) as it has been mentioned in Surah ‘Anfaal (Spoils of War). When the Muslims felt confusion, then Allah Almighty increased the strength of Angels (peace be upon them) threefold, because the strength of the Infidels was threefold than Muslims. Allah Almighty appointed that if they would persevere, show firmness and stability, stand still to fight with the enemies, fear from Allah Almighty and keep away from the evil, then five thousand Angels (peace be upon them) will be sent down from the sky. Even if the disbelievers get more help from somewhere, you should not be confused. Allah Almighty will help you. It comes in the histories that the help of Kuuz bin Jabir did not reach the polytheists. The Muslims acquired greatest victory over the disbelievers. Many disbelievers were killed, some were arrested and who remained alive, they returned being abject and disgraced. This Battle of Badr happened to be cause of difference between the right and the wrong, and it became a golden page of the history of Muslim’s bright past.

Lesson 

 

Badr  – The first battle between Islam and Infidelity was fought on 17th Ramadan 2 AH. In the battlefield of Badr a handful, number of Muslims got such graceful victory that the spine of infidelity was broken. The Infidels judged first time about the strength of Muslims. ‘antum  ‘azillah (you were contemptible). At that time number of Muslims were 313 (three hundred and thirteen only) including old, young, little (boys) and elder, who might be able to fight. They all did not have even proper weapons to fight. This entire Army had only 70 (seventy) camels and two horses. The swords and lances of some of the persons were broken. Even that some person carried only staffs of the date trees for proceeding to the crusade.

 

Some crusaders of Islam were such persons, who were not able to fight due to their age and height, and the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) wished that they should not go in the battlefield. But observing their longing he (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) was compelled to let them permit to go.

 

The Battle of Badr was a very strong test of the Muslims’ courage and spirit. One thousand Quraysh braves attacked under command of well conversant generals including Abu Jehal {the father of ignorance and uncle of Prophet Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)}. Many of them were riders. The men in armor out of them were three hundred. They all had each type of arms and equipment for warfare.

 

These one thousand Army Personnel, Intoxicated with power, assaulted three hundred and thirteen Muslims. But in the first assault this great multitude became helpless to surrender. Their seventy persons were slain and the Muslims arrested the same numbers. Those overcame who were weak and those were disgraced who were powerful.

 

This verse has very great lesson in itself to satisfy the injured Muslims of the Battle of ‘Uhud and desire of pleasing the weak Muslims. If Allah Almighty can support the Truth to conquer during its prime time of helplessness, then why the Billion Muslims of today be distressed in mind. They should trust in Allah Almighty and put their entire strength in eminence of Islam.
