Quran 4:74 [Fighting for God]

Therefore let those fight in the way of Allah, who sell this world’s life for the hereafter; and whoever fights in the way of Allah, then be he slain or be he victorious, We shall grant him a mighty reward [Quran 4:74]

EXPLANATION

Fighting in the way of Allah is to end persecution of pagans. Read the next verse, 4.75, which reads,” How is it that you do not fight in the way of Allah and in support of the helpless men, women and children, who pray ‘Our Lord, bring us out of this land whose people are oppressors and appoint for us from Yourself, a protector, and appoint for us from Yourself a helper.’ “
