يَحْسَبُونَ ٱلأَحْزَابَ لَمْ يَذْهَبُواْ وَإِن يَأْتِ ٱلأَحْزَابُ يَوَدُّواْ لَوْ أَنَّهُمْ بَادُونَ فِي ٱلأَعْرَابِ يَسْأَلُونَ عَنْ أَنبَآئِكُمْ وَلَوْ كَانُواْ فِيكُمْ مَّا قَاتَلُوۤاْ إِلاَّ قَلِيلاً
-Al-Ahzâb ( الأحزاب )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

They suppose that the confederates, of disbelievers, have not [yet] departed, to Mecca, because of their fear of them, and were the confederates to come, a second time, they would wish that they were in the desert with the Bedouins asking about your news, your encounters with the disbelievers. And if they were among you, this second time, they would fight but a little, for show and for fear of being reviled.
