Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala says in Surah Ak Anfal verse 9 as follows

إِذْ تَسْتَغِيثُونَ رَبَّكُمْ فَاسْتَجَابَ لَكُمْ أَنِّي مُمِدُّكُمْ بِأَلْفٍ مِنَ الْمَلَائِكَةِ مُرِْفِ

"(Remember), when you ask for help from your Lord, then He permits you:" Verily I will bring reinforcements to you with a thousand Angels who come in succession. "(Surat al-Anfal: 9).

Reported from that the victory of a warrior does not lie in physical strength alone. The large number of troops, complete supplies, trained personnel do not guarantee victory.

The most important point of victory is the closeness of the warrior to Allah ta'ala. this is manifested by the intensity of prayers sung to God. He raised his hand in humility and submission and begged for victory and destruction for the enemy.

The Prophets of alaihimus salaam also never separated from prayer. Noah prayed for the destruction of his denial. the prophets of Lut, Ibrahim, Musa and many more.

Even Allah ta'ala has explained specifically the secret of the victory of the Thalut forces when fighting the Jalut forces because of their strong prayers. Though the number and strength of the Thalut troops were nothing compared to the Jalut forces.

رَبَّنَا أَفْرِغْ عَلَيْنَا صَبْرًا وَثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَنَا وَانْصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرين

"O our Lord, patience be upon us, and strengthen and help us to be infidels." (Surat al-Baqarah: 250).

Then Allah the Exalted won Jalut and his army. "They (the Thalut army) defeated the Jalut army with the permission of Allah and (in the war) David killed Jalut." (Surah AI-Baqarah: 251)

Imam Muslim narrates the story of Umar bin Khattab who tells the events of the Battle of Badr. At that time, the Prophet PBUH looked at his army which numbered only three hundred people more.
Then the Prophet (PBUH) turned his gaze towards the polytheists. Their numbers turned out to be more than a thousand. The Prophet who was wearing a shawl and sarong then faced the Qibla to pray:
"O Allah, fulfill me what you have promised me. O Allah, give what you have promised me. O Allah, if you let this Islamic army perish. there is no more worshiping you on this earth. "(Narrated by Muslim and Ahmad)
Rasulullah SAW continued to ask Allah for help and prayed until the shawl cloth fell from his shoulder. Abu Bakr came closer and picked up the cloth and rested it on his shoulders. Abu Bakr who stood behind the Prophet SAW said;
"O Prophet of Allah, your request to your Lord is sufficient, for surely He will fulfill what He has promised you."
after that Allah sent down His word which means: (remember) when you ask for help from your Lord, then He permitted you, "Verily I will bring you hostages with a thousand angels who come in succession." -Anfal: 9).
after that a battle erupted between the two troops. In this war, Allah defeated the polytheists' army. [Interpretation of Ibnu Kathir]
Allah Ta'ala says:

بِأَلْفٍ مِنَ الْمَلَائِكَةِ مُرْدِفِينَ

With a thousand angels coming in succession. (Surat al-Anfal: 9)

the scholars differed in interpreting the word of God. However, the famous opinion is the opinion of Ibn Abbas who said that, Allah provides assistance to His Prophet and the believers with a thousand angels.

the angel Gabriel descended with five hundred angels next to the Prophet SAW and the Angel Michael came down with five hundred other angels on the other side.

Imam Abu Ja'far bin Jarir and Muslim Imam have narrated through the hadith lkrimah bin Ammar, from Abu Zamil Sammak bin Walid Al-Hanafi. from Ibn Abbas, from Umar, the hadith mentioned above.

Then Abu Zamil said, Ibn Abbas had told me that when a man from the Muslim army was fighting fiercely against one of the polytheists in front of him, suddenly he heard the sound of a whip above his head and the sound of a riderthe horse said, "Go forth, Harzum!"Suddenly he saw the polytheists he fought against fell and died instantly in a supine state. Then he observed the victim in front of him.

It turned out that the polytheistic corpse was charred, on his face there was a wound like a whip.

the incident made the entire Muslim army excited. A man from the Ansar group came to Rasulullah SAW to tell the story.

So the Messenger of Allāh SA said, "You are right, that is help from the third heaven.on that day seventy people were killed from among the polytheists, while seventy others were taken prisoner.

The question to activists of the Islamic struggle, how intense is the prayer that has been sung? how often were his hands raised up in the sky begging for victory for the warriors? How serious is he asking for victory for the Islamic warriors and the destruction of his enemy enemies?
Real support for the struggle of Islam is evidenced by praying that Allah sent down His troops from the angels who would cut down the enemy as the battle of Badr.

That with that prayer also discouraged the infidels. Prayer must be integrated in the fighters of Islam fighters. be a spirit that will move the body and soul to be offered to Islam.

May Allah bestow patience on the mujahidin wherever they are, confirm their stand, and reward them with victory. May we be made part of them. Ameen
