عن عقبة بن عامر قال: سمعت رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- وهو على المنبر، يقول: "{وأعدوا لهم ما استطعتم من قوة} [الأنفال: 60]، ألا إن القُوَّةَ الرَّميُ، ألا إن القوة الرمي، ألا إن القوة الرمي".
[صحيح.] - [رواه مسلم.]
المزيــد ...

‘Uqbah ibn ‘Āmir reported that he heard the Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) say on the pulpit: {And prepare against them whatever you are able of power} [Sūrat al-Anfāl: 60]ز Indeed, power is in shooting. Indeed, power is in shooting. Indeed, power is in shooting."
[Sahih/Authentic] - [Muslim]

Explanation

This Hadīth explains the type of power that Muslims are commanded to adopt in combating the enemies and disbelievers: shooting, because it is more effective. When the verse was revealed, archery was prevalent. However, the miraculous indications of the verse suggest that this power is not time-bound. It involves all types and tools of shooting in any time and place, and with any weapon.
