Sura 8
Aya 62
وَإِن يُريدوا أَن يَخدَعوكَ فَإِنَّ حَسبَكَ اللَّهُ ۚ هُوَ الَّذي أَيَّدَكَ بِنَصرِهِ وَبِالمُؤمِنينَ

Muhammad Asad

And should they seek but to deceive thee [by their show of peace] - behold, God is enough for thee!1 He it is who has strengthened thee with His succour, and by giving thee believing followers2
  • The implication is that "even if they offer peace only with a view to deceiving thee, this [offer of] peace must be accepted, since all judgment [of their intentions] must be based on outward evidence alone" (Razi): in other words, mere suspicion cannot be made an excuse for rejecting an offer of peace.
  • Lit., "and by the believers": thus signifying the visible means (wasitah) by which God succoured the Prophet.
