In 625 AD was the battle of UHUD,near Mecca,where 3,000 Meccans defeatd 1,000 Muslims.The Muslims were in shock.Allah says he let them be defeated so he COULD KNOW who was a real believer,who wasn’t.
“If you have received a blow, the (disbelieving) people have received a blow the like thereof. These are the vicissitudes which We cause to follow one another for mankind, to the END that ALLAH MAY KNOW those WHO BELIEVE and MAY CHOOSE WITNESSES from AMONG YOU; and Allah loves not wrong-doers.”
The 3 Muslims(PICKTHAL(British convert)/SHAKIR/YUSUFALI) all say “MAY KNOW” in regard to Allah:
SPANISH TRANSLATION(by Muslims)
It is written:”para que(so that/in order to) Allah DISTINGA (verb “differentiate”)QUIENES (who) son los que creen(verbe”to believe”).”
FRENCH TRANSLATION(by Muslims)
It has:”AFIN(so that/in order to) que DIEU RECONNAISSE CEUX(God SHOULD RECONIZE those) qui ONT CRU(have believed).”
