8.25 . And guard yourselves against a chastisement which cannot fall exclusively on those of you who are wrong doers , and know that Allah is severe in punishment .
8.26 . And remember , when ye were few and reckoned feeble in the land , and were in fear lest men should extirpate you , how He gave you refuge , and strengthened you with His help , and made provision of good things for you , that haply ye might be thankful .
