There is good for you in them.
So mention the Name of Allah over them as they stand.
And when they have fallen on their flanks,

Thus has He disposed them for your benefit
so that you may magnify Allah for His guiding you.
And give good news to the virtuous.

38 Allah indeed defends those who have faith.

because they have been wronged,
