Sura 33
Aya 20
يَحسَبونَ الأَحزابَ لَم يَذهَبوا ۖ وَإِن يَأتِ الأَحزابُ يَوَدّوا لَو أَنَّهُم بادونَ فِي الأَعرابِ يَسأَلونَ عَن أَنبائِكُم ۖ وَلَو كانوا فيكُم ما قاتَلوا إِلّا قَليلًا

Ali Unal

(They are so fearful that) they think that the Confederates have not (really) retreated. Should the Confederates come once more, they would much rather be among the Bedouins in the deserts and ask for news about you (than remain in Madinah and face the battle). Even if they were among you, they would fight only a little.
