إِذْ تَقُولُ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَلَنْ يَكْفِيكُمْ أَن يُمِدَّكُمْ رَبُّكُمْ بِثَلاَثَةِ ءَالَٰفٍ مِّنَ ٱلْمَلاۤئِكَةِ مُنزَلِينَ
بَلَىۤ إِن تَصْبِرُواْ وَتَتَّقُواْ وَيَأْتُوكُمْ مِّن فَوْرِهِمْ هَـٰذَا يُمْدِدْكُمْ رَبُّكُمْ بِخَمْسَةِ ءَالَٰفٍ مِّنَ ٱلْمَلاۤئِكَةِ مُسَوِّمِينَ

Al Qushairi Tafsir

[3:124-5] When you were saying to the believers, 'Is it not sufficient for you that
your Lord should reinforce you with three thousand angels sent down? * Yea, if you are patient and fear, and they come against you instantly, your Lord will reinforce you with five thousand angels accoutred'.
The tranquility sent by the Real (s) to the heart of Muṣ?afā (ṣ) was from God (s), without intermediary, while the strengthening of the hearts of the believers was through the Messenger (ṣ). If not for what remained in them, he would not have replied to them, telling of the help in sending the angel (malak). Why tell of the angel when the affair is entirely in the hand of the King (malik)?
