Reminder to the Believers from Surah Al-Anfal

O you who have believed, obey Allah and His Messenger and do not turn from him while you hear [his order]. (8:20)

And do not be like those who say, “We have heard,” while they do not hear. (8:21)

And fear a trial which will not strike those who have wronged among you exclusively, and know that Allah is severe in penalty. (8:25)
