An-Nisa (The Women) 4:95-98
Not equal are those Believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah has granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home): unto all (in faith) has Allah promised good: but those who strive and fight have He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a great reward (95). Ranks specially bestowed by Him and Forgiveness and Mercy. For Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful (96). When angels take the souls of those who die in sin against their souls, they say: "In what (plight) were you?" They reply: "Weak and oppressed were we in the earth." They say: "Was not the earth of Allah spacious enough for you to move yourselves away (from evil)?" Such men will find their abode in Hell - what an evil refuge (97)! Except those who are (really) weak and oppressed - men, women, and children who have no means in their power, nor (a guide-post) to direct their way (98).
