[3:157-158] And if you are slain in God's way, or die, forgiveness from God and mercy are better than what they amass. * And if you die or are slain, it is to God you shall be mustered.
To sacrifice the spirit in God is better than life without God. Returning to God is better for one who knows God than staying behind with something other than God. Whatever the servant prefers over God is not blessed. If you want, there is this world and if you want, there is the final outcome.
And if you die or are slain, it is to God you shall be mustered: When the destination is to God, the journey is pleasant. A journey such as this, when it comes to an end, is sweeter than honey because of its hardships!
