Transliteration:( Wa maa lakum allaa tunfiqoo fee sabeelil laahi wa lillaahi meeraasus samaawaati wal-ard; laa yastawee minkum man anfaqa min qablil fat-hi wa qaatal; ulaaa'ika a'zamu darajatam minal lazeena anfaqoo min ba'du wa qaataloo; wa kullanw wa'ad allaahul husnaa; wallaahu bimaa ta'maloona Khabeer )

10.And what reason have you, that you do not spend in the way of Allah, whereas Allah's is the heritage (27) of the heavens and the earth altogether? Those of you who spent and fought (28) for the victory (of Makkah) are not equal to those who did not (strive). They are exalted in rank (29), than those who spent and fought afterwards (30). And Allah has promised (31) to all the reward of Paradise. And Allah is Aware of your deeds.
