Sura 9
Aya 46
۞ وَلَو أَرادُوا الخُروجَ لَأَعَدّوا لَهُ عُدَّةً وَلٰكِن كَرِهَ اللَّهُ انبِعاثَهُم فَثَبَّطَهُم وَقيلَ اقعُدوا مَعَ القاعِدينَ


If they had (really) resolved to move out (for fighting) they would have procured (at least some) equipment for that. But (the fact is that owing to their falsehood and hypocrisy) Allah disliked (even) their rising up (for fighting). So, He stopped them (there). And it was said to them: ‘Sit in the company of those who sit (shirking from fight).’
