Sura 8
Aya 66
الآنَ خَفَّفَ اللَّهُ عَنكُم وَعَلِمَ أَنَّ فيكُم ضَعفًا ۚ فَإِن يَكُن مِنكُم مِائَةٌ صابِرَةٌ يَغلِبوا مِائَتَينِ ۚ وَإِن يَكُن مِنكُم أَلفٌ يَغلِبوا أَلفَينِ بِإِذنِ اللَّهِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ مَعَ الصّابِرينَ


Allah has, at present, lightened the burden (of His Commandment) on you. He knows that there is (some degree of) weakness in you. So (now after mitigation the Command is) that if there are (one) hundred resolute and steadfast (men) from amongst you, they will overpower two hundred (disbelievers). And if there are (one) thousand of you, they will triumph over two thousand (disbelievers) by the Command of Allah and Allah is with those who remain steadfast. (This is a target fixed for the believers and the minimum possible effect the vehemence of their faith should realize in the battlefield.)
