وَلَوْ أَنَّهُمْ رَضُوْاْ مَآ آتَاهُمُ ٱللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ وَقَالُواْ حَسْبُنَا ٱللَّهُ سَيُؤْتِينَا ٱللَّهُ مِن فَضْلِهِ وَرَسُولُهُ إِنَّآ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ رَاغِبُونَ
-At-Tawbah ( التوبة )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

If only they had been content with what God and His Messenger have given them, in the way of spoils and the like, and had said, ‘Sufficient for us is God; God will give us from His bounty, and His Messenger [will also give us], from other spoils, what will suffice us; to God we are suppliants’, that He enrich us (the response of [the conditional] law, ‘if only’, is la-kāna khayran lahum, ‘it would have been better for them’).
