Are those who fight considered better than those who don’t fight?

Bible: No       Qur'an: Yes

1 Samuel 30:23-24 – 23. Then said David… with that which the LORD hath given us, who hath preserved us, and hath delivered the company that came against us into our hand… 24. as his part is who goeth down to the battle, so shall his part be who tarrieth by the baggage; they shall divide alike.

An-Nisa 4:95 – Those of the believers who sit (at home in Medina), other than those who have a (disabling) hurt, are not equal with those who strive for the cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives. Allah has conferred on those who strive with their wealth and their lives a rank above the ones who sit (at home).

At-Tawbah 9:20 – Those who believe and have left their homes and fought for Allah’s cause with their wealth and their lives are of much greater worth in Allah’s sight. They are the triumphant.
