The Spoils of War (Al-Anfaal)
75 verses, revealed in Medina after The Heifer (Al-Baqarah) before The Amramites (Al-Imraan)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ They ask you concerning the spoils of war? Tell them: 'The spoils of war belong to Allah and the Messenger. So fear Allah, and set things right between you, and obey Allah and His Messenger if you are true believers. (1) When God is mentioned, the true believers begin to feel fear of Him in their hearts and when His revelations are recited to them their faith strengthens. In God alone do they trust. (2) Who are firm in devotion, and spend of what We have given them, (3) Those: it is they who are the true believers. For them are degrees with their Lord and forgiveness and a provision honourable. (4) As it was your Lord who rightfully brought you forth from your house, even though some of the believers disliked it, (5) Disputing with thee concerning the truth after it was made manifest, as if they were being driven to death and they (actually) saw it. (6) Though God promised that one of two columns (would fall to you), you desired the one that was not armed. But God wished to confirm the truth by His words, and wipe the unbelievers out to the last, (7) That He should establish the truth and abolish falsehood, even if the criminals disliked it. (8) And recall what time ye implored our Lord and He answered you: verily I am about to succour you with a thousand of angels rank in rank. (9) God only did this to give you good news, and so that your hearts might be set at rest, for help comes from God alone. Surely, God is Mighty and Wise. (10)
