Thereafter this number was increased to three thousand:
"Remember you said to the faithful. "Is it not enough for you that Allah should help you with three thousand Angels (specially) sent down?" (3:124)
with this came the promise also that should the enemy attack you then instead of three thousand, five thousand will be sent for your help.
"Yes, if you remain Firm, and act aright, even if the enemy should rush here on you in hot haste, your lord will help you with five thousand angels, making a terrific onslaught." (3:125)
3. Right before the battle the Muslims were made to fall asleep for a while and when they woke up after a few minutes, they were fresh for battle:
"Remember, He covered you with a sort of drowsiness to give you calm as from Himself and He caused rain to descend on you fromheaven to clean you therewith, to remove from you the stain of Shaitaan, to srengthen your heart and to plant your feet firmly therewith." (8:11)
4. From the heavens rain was sent down. This made the sandy soil firm under their feet and because of the decline of the land if caused water together in a whole for their use, while the land around the enemy was rendered into a muddy plain:
"Remember your Lord inspired the Angels (with the message): "I am with you, give firmness to the believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: Smite above their necks and smite all their finger trips off them." (8:12)
