Straight Path 5:Think!Reason!Who should be feared?

in this part we have a story which Quran is talking about that in particular while in general this model can be happen (as it happened already and will be in years later) several times.there was a group of disbelievers who had a stronghold out of a city of new muslims.they had powerful connection among the bazaar and also were professionally trained warriors.they had a contract with Muhammed {peace upon him} (as the leader of the muslims).it was a contract for both sides to keep the economical relations safe and let the trade keep going as well as not to help the enemy groups against each other by any means.so,then,muslims did find out that the other group is preparing for an attack(as god informed muhammed) then muslims decided to make their move sooner against that treacherous group.they decided to siege the castle instead of trying to conquer it.(as god commanded) .in this moment(like all the other times) god helped the little unexperienced army of muslims to win the battle just by psychological and mental reasons.those group of proud and wealthy warriors wasn't able to make a simple agreement in those moments and they just waited .so ordinary people starved out in the castle and muslims won the war without even a single arrow fired.in these parts of quran we have god's words about these kinds of situations.why those people was too afraid of some skinny poor people who were just some newly believers.and why the wealthy group a group who thinks and reasons?also keep it in mind that it (that war) was just a punishment on earth.cause they will face a real harmful punishment in the hell.they lost their homes and gardens but this was just a punishment for this world.any way it says:

You [believers] are more fearful within their{the treacherous group} breasts than Allah . That is because they are a people who do not understand.*They will not fight you all except within fortified cities or from behind walls. Their violence among themselves is severe. You think they are together, but their hearts are diverse. That is because they are a people who do not reason.*[Theirs is] like the example of those shortly before them: they tasted the bad consequence of their affair, and they will have a painful punishment.*The hypocrites are] like the example of Satan when he says to man, "Disbelieve." But when he disbelieves, he says, "Indeed, I am disassociated from you. Indeed, I fear Allah , Lord of the worlds."

    I write it especially in a comment cause it a very important rule of islam for the believers but its unfortunately forgotten by people of the islamic world.it says:never make any contact with the enemies of god.this is a law which is forcing the disbelievers groups to think about this important matters of their (own) lives and to encourage them to become interested in why this matter is more important than trading for muslims.in this story of Muhammed(PUH) era,(( the group )) wasn't actually disbeliever .they were some people of scripture with little amount of faith.so muhammed (PUH) made a contract with them.thanx for reading.may the maker save us all.
