وَلَوْ أَرَادُواْ ٱلْخُرُوجَ لأَعَدُّواْ لَهُ عُدَّةً وَلَـٰكِن كَرِهَ ٱللَّهُ ٱنبِعَاثَهُمْ فَثَبَّطَهُمْ وَقِيلَ ٱقْعُدُواْ مَعَ ٱلْقَاعِدِينَ
-At-Tawbah ( التوبة )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

If they had desired to go forth, with you, they would have made some preparation for it, some equipment, such as tools and provisions, but God was averse that they should be sent forth, that is, He did not want them to go forth, so He slowed them down, He made them [feel] lethargic, and it was said, to them: ‘Stay back with those who stay back!’, [with] the sick, the women and the children: in other words, God decreed this.
