24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir

إِذْ يَقُولُ الْمُنَافِقُونَ وَالَّذِينَ فِي قُلُوبِهِم مَّرَضٌ غَرَّ هَـوُلاء دِينُهُمْ

When the hypocrites and those in whose hearts was a disease (of disbelief) said;"These people (Muslims) are deceived by their religion."

Ali bin Abi Talhah said that Ibn Abbas commented,

"When the two armies drew closer to each other, Allah made the Muslims look few in the eyes of the idolators and the idolators look few in the eyes of the Muslims. The idolators said,
غَرَّ هَـوُلاء دِينُهُمْ
(These people (Muslims) are deceived by their religion), because they thought that Muslims were so few. They believed, without doubt, that they would defeat the Muslims. Allah said,
وَمَن يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللّهِ فَإِنَّ اللّهَ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ
(But whoever puts his trust in Allah, then surely, Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise).

Qatadah commented,

"They saw a group of believers who came in defense of Allah's religion. We were informed that when he saw Muhammad and his Companions, Abu Jahl said, `By Allah! After this day, they will never worship Allah!' He said this in viciousness and transgression."

Amir Ash-Sha`bi said,

"Some people from Makkah were considering embracing Islam, but when they went with the idolators to Badr and saw how few the Muslims were, they said,
غَرَّ هَـوُلاء دِينُهُمْ
(These people (Muslims) are deceived by their religion)."

Allah said next,

وَمَن يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللّهِ

But whoever puts his trust in Allah,

and relies on His grace,

فَإِنَّ اللّهَ عَزِيزٌ

then surely, Allah is All-Mighty,

and verily, those who take His side (in the dispute) are never overwhelmed, for His side is mighty, powerful and His authority is All-Great,

حَكِيمٌ



All-Wise.

in all His actions, for He places everything in its rightful place, giving victory to those who deserve it and defeat to those who deserve it
