Driven out of their homes

2:84 And We have taken a covenant with you: "You shall not spill each other's blood, nor  tukh'rijūna each other from your homes." And you agreed to this while bearing witness.

2:85 But then here you are killing each other and driving out a group of you from their homes; you act towards them with evil and animosity. And if they come to you as  usārā , you ransom them while it was forbidden for you to  watukh'rijūna  them! Do you believe in some of the Scripture and disbelieve in some? The punishment for those amongst you who do so is humiliation in this worldly life, and on the Day of Resurrection they will be returned to the most severe retribution. God is not unaware of what you all do.

2:246 Did you not note the leaders of the Children of Israel after Moses, they said to their prophet: "Send us a king that we may fight in the cause of God;" he said: "Are you not concerned that if fighting is decreed upon you, you will then not fight?" They said: "And why should we not fight in the cause of God when we have been  ukh'rij'nā  from our homes with our children." So it was, that when fighting was decreed for them they turned away, except for a few of them! God is fully aware of the wicked.

3:195 Their Lord answered them: "I do not waste the work of any worker from among you, be you male or female, you are all as each other. For those who emigrated and were  wa-ukh'rijū  from their homes and were harmed in My cause, and they fought and were killed, I will remit for them their sins and admit them to paradises with rivers flowing beneath; a reward from God; and God has the best reward."

22:40 The ones who were  ukh'rijū  of their homes without justice, except that they said, "Our Lord is God!" If it were not for God defending people against themselves, then many places of gathering, markets, support centers, and temples where the name of God is frequently mentioned, would have been destroyed. God will give victory to those who support Him. God is Powerful, Noble.

59:2 He is the One who  akhraja  those who disbelieved among the people of the Scripture from their homes at the very first mobilization. You never thought that they would leave, and they thought that their fortresses would protect them from God. But then God came to them from where they did not expect, and He cast terror into their hearts. They destroyed their homes with their own hands and the hands of the believers. So learn from this, O you who possess vision.

59:8 For the immigrants who are poor and were  ukh'rijū of their homes and deprived of their properties, they sought God's grace and pleasure, and they supported God and His messenger. They are the truthful ones.

60:8 God does not forbid you from those who have not fought you because of your system, nor  yukh'rijūkum  you of your homes, that you deal kindly and equitably with them. For God loves the equitable.

60:9 But God does forbid you regarding those who fought you because of your system, and  wa-akhrajūkum  you of your homes, and helped to  ikh'rājikum  you. You shall not ally with them. Those who ally with them, then such are the transgressors.
