When Umar bin Al-Khattab (May Allah be pleased with him) despatched the army of Saad bin Abi Waqqas (May Allah be pleased with him) to the Battle of Al-Qadisiyyah, he advised him:
"Fear your sins more than you fear the enemy as your sins are more dangerous to you than your enemy. We Muslims are only victorious over our enemy because their sins outnumber ours, not for any other reason. If our sins were equal to those of our enemy, then they would defeat us due to their superior numbers and resources."
