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 about the spoils (of war). Say: 'The spoils belong to Allah and the Messenger. Therefore, have fear of Allah and set things right between you. Obey Allah and His Messenger, if you are believers' (1) Those only are believers who, when God is mentioned, their hearts quake, and when His signs are recited to them, it increases them in faith, and in their Lord they put their trust, (2) The ones who establish prayer, and from what We have provided them, they spend. (3) These are the believers in truth; they shall have from their Lord exalted grades and forgiveness and an honorable sustenance. (4) This is like what time thy Lord had caused thee to go forth from thy house for a right cause, while a party among the believers were averse. (5) They disputed with you about the truth after it had become clear, (and they went forth) as if they were being driven to death while they saw (it). (6) When God promised to grant you (believers) victory over either one of the two groups, you wished to have control over the unarmed one. God decided to prove (to you) the truth of His promises and to destroy the unbelievers (7) That He might cause the Truth to triumph and bring vanity to naught, however much the guilty might oppose; (8) Lo! You were praying unto your Sustainer for aid, whereupon He thus responded to you: "I shall, verily, aid you with a thousand angels following one upon another!" (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)
