The Qurʾan What is This? A current English-language version of the Qur'an, published in 2004
Translation by M.A.S. Abdel Haleem

9. Repentance (122 – 129)

122Yet it is not right for all the believers to go out [to battle] together: out of each community, a group should go out to gain understanding of the religion, so that they can teach their people when they return and so that they can guard themselves against evil. 123You who believe, fight the disbelievers near you and let them find you standing firm: be aware that God is with those who are mindful of Him.

124When a sura is revealed, some [hypocrites] say, ‘Have any of you been strengthened in faith by it?’ It certainly does strengthen the faith of those who believe and they rejoice, 125but, as for the perverse at heart, each new sura adds further to their perversity. They die disbelieving. 126Can they not see that they are afflicted once or twice a year? Yet they neither repent nor take heed. 127Whenever a sura is revealed, they look at each other and say, ‘Is anyone watching you?’ and then they turn away—God has turned their hearts away because they are people who do not use their reason.

128A Messenger has come to you from among yourselves. Your suffering distresses him: he is deeply concerned for you and full of kindness and mercy towards the believers.129If they turn away, [Prophet], say ,’God is enough for me: there is no god but Him; I put my trust in Him; He is the Lord of the Mighty Throne.’
