Holy Quran, Chapter 4 Verse 77

أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلَى الَّذِينَ قِيلَ لَهُمْ كُفُّواْ أَيْدِيَكُمْ وَأَقِيمُواْ الصَّلاَةَ وَآتُواْ الزَّكَاةَ فَلَمَّا كُتِبَ عَلَيْهِمُ الْقِتَالُ إِذَا فَرِيقٌ مِّنْهُمْ يَخْشَوْنَ النَّاسَ كَخَشْيَةِ اللّهِ أَوْ أَشَدَّ خَشْيَةً وَقَالُواْ رَبَّنَا لِمَ كَتَبْتَ عَلَيْنَا الْقِتَالَ لَوْلا أَخَّرْتَنَا إِلَى أَجَلٍ قَرِيبٍ قُلْ مَتَاعُ الدَّنْيَا قَلِيلٌ وَالآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ لِّمَنِ اتَّقَى وَلاَ تُظْلَمُونَ فَتِيلاً

“Have you not seen those to whom it was said: ‘hold back your hands from attacking, and establish prayers and pay the Zakat?’ But when fighting has been prescribed for them, behold, a party of them fear men as – or even more than – they should have feared Allah, and say: ‘Our Lord! Why have You ordained fighting for us? For which reason did You not grant us respite to a natural term…”

Imam Baqir (as) said, I swear to Allah that which Hasan bin Ali (as) did for this nation was better than everything in the world. This verse was revealed about him, “Have you not seen those to whom it was said: ‘hold back your hands from attacking, and establish prayers and pay the Zakat?” This refers to those who disobeyed him (Imam Hasan) and asked him to fight Muawiya. “But when fighting has been prescribed for them” with Husain bin Ali (as) they said, “Our Lord! Why have You ordained fighting for us? For which reason did You not grant us respite to a natural term?” And by (asking for respite) they wanted to wait until the rising of the Qaem (as) (Al Kafi volume 8 page 330)
