49:4  Of those who continued to shout out to you from outside the inner apartments, most of them lack understanding

49:7  And know that among you is God's messenger.

Indeed, these are those who walk in righteousness
49:8  A grace and favor from God, and God is full of Knowledge and Wisdom
49:9  If two groups among the believers fall into a quarrel, make peace between them.
